ABOUT SOFTWARE

Writing code is just the beginning piece of building good, industrial strength, software. Software is complex, unmanageable, and constantly evolving according the desires of coders, users, and project fund providers. How can such a multi headed beast be tamed? A good sound process is required along with adaptive rules for building software systems. Most importantly, all parities involved need to agree on what is being created. Communication is key.

The JP sequence is a 3 term sequence revolving around software engineering of an enterprise level software system. Enterprise level systems involve more than a single software component. A typical enterprise system will be composed of:

  • Distributed client/front end
  • Network based communication and data exchange
  • Enterprise level DBMS based persistence layer (e.g. SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL - not MS Access, flat file).

A Reminder on Portfolio Evaluation:

Portfolios will be the main source of performance evaluation for the 316/326/336 sequence. Final term grade will be based on portfolio contents. For an item to be considered as in either your personal or team based portfolio, it must be accompanied by an official written evaluation by the course instructor.

Items not accompanied by a written evaluation will not be considered as support material for grade assignment.
