This application contains centralized database so it requires to store data somewhere. Mobile application as well as website both can access to database. They will use database in different ways. Mobile application will use database to display those data which is required by user. Web portal will use database to store and modify those data needed by administration team of system. Internet will be used for this kind of communication.

There are limited resources available for mobile application. The maximum amount of hard drive space required by application will be 20 MB.

2.2 Product functions

User can search restaurants using mobile application. The result will be displayed using inputs given by user. Administrator of system can change of add criteria. Search result will be displayed in either list view or in map view according to the requirements of user. The list view will have one list item for each restaurant.

The application will also require internet connection. Connectivity to database is established over internet so internet connection will be needed by application.

Both the application and web portal will have limited size of database. Database is shared between both application and web portal so it can happen that they can be forced to queue incoming requests.

2.5 Assumptions and dependencies

We can assume that application will be installed on capable devices. If device does not have enough space, then application will not be installed.

Another assumption is that all mobile devices in which application is installed, have working GPS with same interface. If the phones have different interfaces to the GPS, the requirements for GPS will needed to be changed.

2.6 Apportioning of requirements

If project is about to be delayed, there are some requirements that will be implemented in the next versions of application. Those requirements are to be implemented in the next release, see Appendix IV.

3. Specific requirements

The functional and quality requirements are contained by this section. Detailed description of system and interface is given in this section.
