Abstract: 

This project report presents the design of a Drupal-based house search system with web application development technologies applied in it. The motivation of the design is to provide an efficient platform for the field of real estate to address the difficulties in the tranditonal way of hunting houses. The system benefits the homebuyers with easing the pain of the large amount of researches and communications, as well as the real estate agents via providing a platform to explore their markets. This web system takes advantage of Drupal system, and makes use of the related popular web development technologies to develop all designed features. Also, we apply the client/server architecture to the system, and come up with a thorough design in view of user interface, client/server communication, and database. To validate the system, a combination of testing methodologies is performed, including functional testing, usability testing, and performance testing. A series of test cases are created under each testing methodology, consisten with our system requirements.
