Modify an existing program to fulfill a user story.
Review the following user story from the Product Owner for the SNHU Travel project:
User Story Number: 1 User Story Name: Top Five Destination List User Story Size: Medium User Story Value Statement: As an end user, I want to click a link to view the top five destinations list, so that I can see the most popular locations for travel to educate myself on the best places to go.
Acceptance Criteria: Ability to click link that takes user to a page displaying top destinations. Ordered list of destinations from the most popular location to the fifth-most popular. Each destination on the list will have the following attributes shown: destination name, destination short description (one sentence), destination picture, text with embedded link to take user to top-selling travel package for that location.
Download the BasicListViewControl JAR file and run it. This will allow you to see the template before you make customizations.
Import the BasicListViewControl ZIP file to a new project in your Eclipse IDE. For help with importing a ZIP file to Eclipse, review the Uploading Files to Eclipse Tutorial.
Using the source code given, update the simple list to your top five chosen destinations. Include the destination title, a short description, and a small image for each. This will help ensure that you have fulfilled the acceptance criteria of the user story. Refer to the Developing Basic ListView Control Tutorial to help you with this task.
Add images and additional customizations.
Add images for each destination and at least one additional customization, color scheme, or the like to make the control as elaborate as you want. Be sure to include clear and concise comments to explain your changes.
Wikimedia Commons is an excellent source for copyright-free images. Be sure to credit the author or creator.
For additional information on adding images to a Java project, watch this video: Loading Resources in Java Using Eclipse IDE (4:01). A transcript is available here: CS 250 Loading Resources in Java Using Eclipse IDE Video Transcript.
Finally, add a label with your name on it.
Guidelines for Submission
Export your Eclipse Java Project to an executable JAR file. This will include the source code and the image files so the full basic ListView control can run. Submit the JAR file.
