Course DescriptionCovers software design, implementation, and testing using Java. Introduces object-oriented design techniques and problem solving. Emphasizes development of secure, well-designed software projects that solve practical real-world problems. Prerequisites: CIS 122. Audit available.
Intended Outcomes for the course
On completion of the course the student should be able to:
- Use an integrated development environment to write, compile, run, and test simple object-oriented Java programs.
- Read and make elementary modifications to Java programs that solve real-world problems.
- Validate input in a Java program.
- Identify and fix defects and common security issues in code.
- Document a Java program using Javadoc.
- Use a version control system to track source code in a project.
Course Activities and Design
This course is presented by means of lecture/discussion sessions, assignments, exams, and Java projects.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Students will complete software projects comprised of an object-oriented design, implementation, and test plan.
- Designs will demonstrate the use of good object-oriented design principles including encapsulation and information hiding.
- The implementation will demonstrate the use of a variety of basic control structures including selection and repetition; classes and objects in a tiered architecture (user interface, controller, and application logic layers); primitive and reference data types including composition; basic AWT components; file-based I/O; and one-dimensional arrays.
- Test plans will include test cases demonstrating both black box and glass box testing strategies.
