Abstract- The expertise of E-Commerce need to proper understand both technological and Business knowledge. E- commerce is mainly used as the platform as buying and selling numerous goods via the Internet service specially WWW (World Wide Web). The use of E-Commerce is increased progressively and its popularity is skyrocketed. People all over the world specially the young and busy person showing keen interest on E- Commerce because this platform very helpful to save their valuable time. Though Bangladesh is a developing country, its IT technology shows improvement very rapidly. The attachment of Business with IT technology added an authentic dimension. But the complexity of managing the demand of growing people and product diversity increased day by day. To cope with this challenge the businessman feel an urgent requirement of strong, efficient and flexible database for manage data and website for managing their activities. In this research work I design a database and a website for the demand of online business. The engagement of people with E-commerce growing rapidly and their test and demand are very diverse. So the data is increased a lot and the requirement of Database is must for online businessman because the only solution of managing these growing data is database management. The different types and qualities of product enhance speedily. The businessman needs to show each product on the user interface so that the user can attract with the product and can easily choose their required product. This essential task can do perfectly by using software. After design and implement software it is unavoidable desired to complete testing and quality assurance plan. In our research work we have done these tasks perfectly, effectively and successfully.

Keywords- E-commerce, Online Business, MYSQL, Database, Website.


E-commerce or Electronic commerce is a method through which various types of transactions like data or fund transfer taking place with the help [1] of electronic technology. In the initial state this techniques is used to transfer commercial document such as invoices and purchase orders. The electronic commerce included lots of transaction system for example debit card, credit card, ATM, Telephone banking, enterprise resource planning systems (ERP), data mining and data warehousing. E-commerce business formula has been developed an environment through which the commercial business spread all over the world within very short time. Bangladesh is a developing country and our country experienced a quick development of IT technology. By using these advanced technology people can communicate and

transfer information, data, fund, ect. throughout the world instantly.

The people are growing very rapidly and their demand and test increases instantly. They attract the purchases [2] process which is time saving and convenient. Nowadays people are very busy with their work and they have no time to shopping their required good. As a result they are showing keen interest with online shopping which is much time saving process. The world is running with full speed in economical department. But suddenly the world experienced a disease Covid-19 which shut down the world economy and business sector. People cant move outside of their house even for buying their expected daily goods. As a result for fulfill their basic needs major portion of people around the world depends on the online shopping. If they need any kinds of product they can easily order the product through online. At the same time lots of people have started online business. They tried to attract more customer concentration to buy their product. Though numerous businessmen are engaged with online business, the competition is increased and its become difficult to exist in the business market. Its become must for them to develop themselves and need to decorate their business with lots of innovative ideas.

For existing in the competition and betterment of their business it becomes essential to engage their business with online. For managing their business properly and spread it throughout the world, they need an efficient database and software. The customer is [3] growing rapidly and the product types are rising very fast. So lots of data are available which need to manage the business manager without loss. This data managing process is very difficult. This problem can be solved very easily with the engagement of database. Through database a businessman can easily manage huge amount of data without any data loss. For extended their business nationally or internally they need to advertise their business which is very hard work. On the other hand, for obtaining public concentration the merchant need to display his product in a decorated and attractive manner which is very complex. This complex and hard task can be done very easily with the help of software. In this research work I design a flexible database and efficient website as the blessed of online business.

For designing online business software required some process which is dividd in some module. These module are Login, Registration, Search, Category, Sub Category, Product details, Check out, Order info and auxiliary module. The login system module is used to compare the User admin panel and the user login window. The system administrators define the role and provide the permission level for the user. This module also has the ability to create and delete user account and reset the password. The category information is composed by using category module and the sub category information composed by the sub category module. The product detail and registration is composed by using product detail module and registration module respectively. The order module composed the order information.

A. Testing Plan

List of Orders page:

For system design testing is essential and it is checking the exactness of the system. The black box testing is used to check the system work perfectly. The input and the relevant output is feeding the black box test. After taking inputs and outputs different types of analysis is taking place for find out that they provide desired outcome which provides assurance of the system work perfectly. In this research work the test and implementation work parallel.

B. Testing Schedule

The system testing follow predominant manner in Black Box based and the schedule of testing follow the schedule of implementation. Testing is the combination of bottom up and top-down and every unit is tested uniquely. Then the whole system is tested at a same time and the final test of the system completed successfully. The block box testing is unable to test the internal activities of the system.

Code Walkthrough:

The checking of each part of code is completely my responsibility because I work as a developer in this research work. It is more convenient to find error during testing cycle rather than later finding. After completing the coding for website design, it becomes essential to complete the test of whole system. During the test season mainly check syntax error, incorrect function or variable name and inefficient data structures. After changing the whole system the further walkthrough taking place and continued.

Component Testing:

The component testing is occurred instantly on the developing machine after giving the code all clear in the cod- walkthrough. The individual function code is compiled and executed to see the performance of the function. If a part of code does not provide expected result, the code should check against the specification requirement.

Bottom-up Integration testing:

The bottom-up integration testing is applied on the region where all the component combined together and try to find out all the part work perfectly. If there find any error the code and unit testing is reviewed for pointing and fixing the problem.

System Test:

In this section the user and the visitors give their opinion that the developer follow the objective of the project correctly and implemented accurately. This checking considers two major issues like function testing and performance testing.
