Developing Web Information Systems | Sample Project Proposal Report


The internet has found various applications along with acceptance on the procession of banking and put the industry of banking on the pace of acceleration on development. The advanced technology has enabled the banks for achieving the performance in high level and handling all the transactions which are also impossible without E-commerce or online banking. In this report, Researcher is going to develop an online Banking platform for the customer. It is mainly an application where customer and transfer money from one account to another bank account and needs a valid user ID and password for login in the system. It also shows the customer the bank account details along with their balance on the passbook after successful login.

Executive Summary

The advancement of technology has facilitated the linkages with all the customers through using information provision and delivering quality service. It is now entering the retail banking payment system. Banking through the Internet allows the customers to have engagement with the relationship on informal transactions which is also used for traveling long distances or a minimum risk for losing balance. With the help of online banking, the user can review his account any time and do the transactions, pay and receive bills, fund transfers, and so on.

Key Deliverables

The researcher needs to make an effective and robust online platform using a web-based online system of banking. It needs to extend the functionality without any comprising in the security system. There is also the service of personal banking which gives complete control in all the demands of online (Tran et al. 2017, p. 315). All the requirements are met properly such as customers can able to perform on the transactions such as withdrawal and deposit from the account. It is also able to transfer the funds to another account along with the facility to deposit the funds by the client. For interacting with Database, it needs to use SQL in the backend along with the scripts of PHP, and in the front end, it needs to use HTML, CSS, HTML 5, and so on.


Sample Code Used in HTML



<title>Ssss Bank</title>

<link rel=”icon” href=”img/l.png” type=”image/x-icon”>

<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1″>

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=””>

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”css/response.css”>


function myFunction() {

var x = document.getElementById(“myTopnav”);

if (x.className === “topnav”) {

x.className += ” responsive”;

} else {

x.className = “topnav”;





<body style=”background: url(img/b.jpg) no-repeat center center fixed; -webkit-background-size: cover; -moz-background-size: cover; -o-background-size: cover; background-size: cover;”>

<div class=”topnav” id=”myTopnav”>

<img src=”img/lg.png” height=”44″ width=”204.8″>

<a href=”index.html” class=”active”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-home “></i>Home</a>

<a href=”login/login.html” style=”float: right”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-sign-in “></i>Login</a>

<a href=”register/register.php” style=”float: right”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-sign-in “></i>Register</a>

<a href=”javascript:void(0);” class=”icon” onclick=”myFunction()”>

<i class=”fa fa-bars”></i>





As shown from the above code, it is mainly the code which has the output in below image. CSS is also used as per the required colour in the background. It also uses myfunction() where there are many variables such as variable x, class name which are mainly MyTopNav and name of the class is responsive. User can see that the body style is stated above using the CSS which is the colour combination in background. User can also give nthe colour code but here researcher makes it simple. Width and Height of images are declared in the code as well with the link with another html page.

Home Page

Figure 1: Home Page

As shown from the above figure, HTML code is executed successfully and it gives the page as per requirement. There are also buttons for login and registration.

Registration page for New User

Figure 2: Registration page for New User

As per the requirement, the user can successfully be registered after giving all the credentials. It needs to give first name, last name, email address, password, mobile number for making an account in online banking. It consists of two steps of registrations. In the next step, it takes more detailed information about the user such as in the below.

Step 2 Registration page for New User

As shown from the above figures, tables are created successfully for the online banking website of customers. Various functions as well as their attributes are executed, users can visualize it by importing .sql files in PhpMyAdmin.

Functional and Non-Functional Requirements

Functional requirements are defined for measuring the basic behavior of the system. Essentially, it is used for running the system and can do various things in terms of the response of inputs (Keshavarz et al. 2017, p. 131). The requirements on functional things are usually defined for measuring the behavior of the website and it includes the business process, calculations, and many more.

Functional requirements related to any specific product or service deals with the direct customer end requirements that must be considered for consumer-based development of that item (Nielsen, 2017, p. 269). Non-functional requirements, on the other hand, deals with actual requirements related to product development and maintenance focusing on how the product must actually react or operate in real scenarios. Further discussion in this context can be presented as the common behavioral pattern of a particular product or service which can be used as the relevant description for the non-functional requirements (Naudé, 2016, p. 30). Unique product properties and user expectations can be presented as relevant examples of non-functional requirements of a product. Functional requirements differ with varying products and services with changing user experience and properties of that specific product. Unique product features and user requirements can be addressed as specific examples of functional requirements for a given product (Greer, 2020, p. 5). Functional requirements are required to develop an initial prototype for a product or service, whereas, non-functional requirements are required for final designing of the actual product specifications based on real consumer expectations.

Identify Development Approach

In the development approach, various approaches are used which are compatible and seamless between the devices and it is based on the size. There are various commands which are implemented such as


On the large screens, it mainly presents the layout which is layout with the tabbed versions and the tab is visible on the screen as well. It is becoming visible for making a click button using the navbar (Sambhanthan and Good, 2016, p. 297). The navbar is very sticky that it is used for scrolling the page using the sticks of the navbar to top.

Sample Code for Dashboard.php

$rowr = mysqli_fetch_array($resultr,MYSQLI_ASSOC);

$balance = $rowb[‘balance’];

$online_limit = $rowb[‘online_limit’];

$card_limit = $rowb[‘card_limit’];

$firstname = $rowr[‘firstname’];

$lastname = $rowr[‘lastname’];


<!DOCTYPE html>



<title>State Bank</title>

<link rel=”icon” href=”../img/l.png” type=”image/x-icon”>

<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1″>

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=””>

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”../css/response.css”>


function myFunction() {

var x = document.getElementById(“myTopnav”);

if (x.className === “topnav”) {

x.className += ” responsive”;

} else {

x.className = “topnav”;






<div class=”topnav” id=”myTopnav”>

<img style=”float:right; right:1″ src=”../img/lg.png” height=”44″ width=”204.8″>

<a href=”dashboard.php” class=”active”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-calculator “></i>Dashboard</a>

<a href=”profile.php”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-id-card-o “></i>Profile</a>

<a href=”transfer.php”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-cogs “></i>Transfer Money</a>

<a href=”transactions.php”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-file-text “></i>Transactions</a>

<a href=”limit.php”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-sliders “></i>Set Limit</a>

<a href=”logout.php” style=”float: right”><i class=”fa fa-fw fa-sign-out “></i>Logout</a>

<a href=”javascript:void(0);” class=”icon” onclick=”myFunction()”>

<i class=”fa fa-bars”></i>


As shown from the above code of php, it gives the declaration about the set limit and configuration command of the dashboard. It is linked with the profile.php, transfer.php, limit.php, logout.php and so on. After starting the session, it needs to use the account no and then use the command mysqli connects for running the root folder in the localhost. Declaration for the balance function is also provided and researcher has uses the declaration of several function using the classname, and divide command is used as well.
