FIT-AISAcad. year: 2019/2020

Software process, software development lifecycle models. Modelling techniques of the  UML 2.0. Introduction to Unified Process. Inception, requirements capturing and specification. Elaboration, domain model. Architecture design, architectural patterns and frameworks. Model-View-Controller pattern. JEE platform, SOA. Class design, GRASP principles. Design patterns. Programming, test-driven design, refactoring. Activities in next iterations. A project oriented to requirement analysis and software design.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

  • Students will know fundamentals of essential stages in information system development at a level, which is further evolved in specialized subjects.
  • They will be able to develop suitable models during information system requirements analysis and design, mainly in the UML language.

Students will learn how to analyze a design solution of a given problem in a small team. They learn to present and defend  both partial and final results of the project.

Prerequisites

  • Basic knowledge of software engineering. 
  • Knowledge of the paradigms of and practical experience with object-oriented programming.
