|Purpose of this assignment|
This assignment considers the skills required to developing solutions to meet identified user needs while emphasising the importance of testing and reviewing.
|Scenario You are working as a junior software developer for Prime Softwares Ltd. You are asked to create a program in Java for a book retailer. The software should allow administrator to update stock and customers should be able to view stock, put items in the basket, see total price and a reference number is generated. Customers can place orders by telephone.|
The program must demonstrate your skills in using object-oriented programming concepts:
l Method overloading
l Method Overriding
There should be some sort of on-line help system and an about page.
|Task 1 Plan & Design |
· Create a GUI for both staff and customer.
· Clearly state the expected outcomes for the application. State the inputs, outputs & processing required.
· Evaluate the following delivery environments and chose one for your solution: mobile, handheld, web based, desktop & dedicated device. Discuss the method in which the users will interact with the application. Discuss the standards that the user interface will comply to. State the platforms that will be compatible with the program. P[2.3]
· Plan the layout of forms including details of design.
· Create an activity diagram for a customer to create an order an order
· Create a class diagram for the intended program
· Identify the Java Class libraries that you will be using. p[2.2]
p[2.1] For all the above.
|Task 2: Implementation |
· Create an object diagram based on your class diagram in task 1. [P3.2]
· Use a range of controls, and a range of object oriented programming concepts to create your Application. [P3.3]
· Make use of the Java Class libraries that were specified in the design section.
· You must implement validation & error handling mechanisms. [P3.4]
· Document the implementation with annotated screenshots and commented source code.
p[3.1] & p[3.5] for all the above.
|Task 3: Testing & Review|
· Create a test plan and show the test data to be used. Include range testing. Test both normal and erroneous data. Test the application according to your test plan.
· Write a short report analysing the actual test results with the expected results. p[4.2]
· Evaluate independent feedback on developed .Net solution to the problem you have provided and make necessary recommendations based on the feedback. p[4.3]
· Demonstrate how you resolved any errors found.
· Review your application and state whether it meets the initial requirements and objectives. Suggest improvements that could be made.
P[4.1] for all the above.
P[4.5] is obtainable by documenting all the above tasks.
|Task 4: Create user guide: (contents page – introduction – step by step screenshots including error handling). P[4.4]|
|Task 5: Discuss the principles, characteristics and features of programming Java. [P1.1] and Critically evaluate the environmental flexibility of programming in Java. [P1.2] |
Include some of the following principles, characteristics and features in your discussion:
The discussion must have an element of criticism.
Suggest improvements and any other comments not included in formative feedback
Please highlight strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement.
