Chapter 3. The auction application > Application requirements

3.1. Application requirements

Before starting to code any application, it’s important to sketch out your requirements and have an idea of how you would like the page flow to operate in the completed product. Sure, things are bound to change during your development cycle, but it’s likely that the overall aim won’t have changed much. The auction application is no different in this respect, so let’s take a moment to outline our aims and get a feel for what the finished product will be able to do.

The auction application aims to provide its users with auctions on travel. The suppliers will post travel offers into the system that users can then bid for in real time, which means they can see other users’ bids as they happen. Upon winning a round of bidding, the trip is then entered into the user’s shopping cart, and they can either continue to bid on other auctions or check out through PayPal. This is a fairly typical format for a lot of ecommerce applications.
