|Brief Handbook Description:||This unit of study will focus on the design, the architecture and the development of web applications using technologies currently popular in the marketplace including Java and .NET environments. There are three key themes examined in the unit: Presentation layer, Persistence layer, and Interoperability. The unit will examine practical technologies such as JSP and Servlets, the model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, database programming with ADO.NET and JDBC, advanced persistence using ORM, XML for interoperability, and XML-based SOAP services and Ajax, in support of the theoretical themes identified.
On completion the students should be able to:
- Compare Java/J2EE web application development with Microsoft .NET web application development.
- Exposure to relevant developer tools (e.g. Eclipse and VS.NET)
- Be able to develop a real application on one of those environments.
- Use XML to implement simple web services and AJAX applications.
|T&L Activities:||Project Work - own time: The project requires students to design and develop web services. It involves group meetings, discussions and development sessions|
