stored information.

Information must be maintained about customer’s invoice details, email addresses and credit cards. In one sale customers are allowed to purchase any number of DVDs.

The items in the sale can only be delivered to one address and the cost of the DVDs are only made to one credit card.

When the customer has completed their shopping the customer is invited to checkout and pay for their items in the shopping basket.

At the checkout the credit card details are verified together with the address the items are to be shipped to. At the end of this process an email is sent to the

customer with details of the sale, the shopping cart details are removed.

You must design a database with the above-mentioned specification indicating the necessary keys and relationships. Draw E/R diagrams to arrive at the tables along with

their attributes such that the database is in the third normal form.

Summary: Design a relational database that capable of maintaining Customer Details, DVD Details, and Order Details.

Notice: Assignment must satisfy all requirements/learning outcomes specified on page 2 in order to Pass.
