The course focuses on the concepts and methods for object-oriented (OO) analysis, design, and development of information systems. The course provides an opportunity to follow a complete project development lifecycle, starting from system analysis, to design, implementation, maintenance and testing, using the Jade software development platform. The course places equal emphasis on theoretical OO knowledge and applying this to OO system implementation.
INFO213 focuses on the concepts and methods for object-oriented (OO) analysis, design, and development of information systems. This is a 15-point course with an equal emphasis on lectures and tutorials. Mastering information systems development is both a conceptual and a practical endeavour where learning-by-doing is essential. The course material includes numerous practical examples and demonstrations to support core topics introduced in lectures. The tutorial exercises are designed to extend the students’ mastery of the course material and prepare for the course assessment. In the course project the students will be required to design and implement a small-scale information system starting from basic requirements description. The course provides a unique opportunity to follow a complete project development lifecycle, starting from system analysis, to design, implementation, maintenance and testing, in a very limited time through the use of the Jade software development platform.
Upon the successful completion of INFO213 the students will be able to:1. Explain the key components of OO analysis, design and development.2. Apply the OO analysis methods to produce system diagrams in unified modelling language (UML).3. Discuss the benefits offered by the OO paradigm along with the corresponding challenges.4. Describe how OO design patterns aid in producing reusable software.5. Use an OO programming language (Jade) to develop a complete information system.6. Compare and contrast OO database technologies with relational database technologies.
