2.2) Technology and Architecture

From the viewpoint of Mashaw (2012) the technology and architecture that is used are the Visual Studio 2005 that works on asp.net web application, C# language, Ajax Toolkit, ASP.NET Server, and SQL Express of 2005 edition. The hardware requirements are the memory that is of 2 GB RAM and the processor is of Intel Pentium 3 or 4. It is basically a 3-tier architecture that operates in the way shown below-
