K: Have you finalized the feature set?
Sohil: means waht
i m sorry
what do u mean by feature set
K: The set of functionalities/features your software will have.
this would be sufficient for making it
K: So, if the feature set is ready, you will know where to start.
Sohil: i m facing problem in database
K: I think you’re on completely different track, either not understanding what I’m saying or not paying attention.
