This application lets students, staff, and faculty scout out classes being offered for the
next, present, and previous terms. The application does a large number of transactions with
peak times being the beginnings of semesters (when students are doing lots of adds and
drops) and during preregistration (when they're picking classes for the next semester.) This
application services provides the ability to search the course catalog for open / closed
sections prior to attempting registration for a particular section. Academic departments
also use the application to identify and track registration levels in each section.
