Short Title:Advanced Object Programming
Full Title:Advanced Object Programming
Module Code:SOFT8023
 
NFQ Level:Advanced
 
ECTS Credits:5.0
Module Coordinator:TIM HORGAN
Description:In this module objects, local and remote in collections and on their own will be studies. On completion of the mofule students will be also to get information about object from class files; use multithreading and access distributed objects. Applying design patterns to software solutions.
Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to
  1. Describe and use design patterns in the development of software applications.
  2. Use Real Time Type Identification (RTTI) and Reflection to build versatile adaptive applications.
  3. Use Multi-Threading safely when developing applications.
  4. Develop applications using Generic and Collections.
  5. Implement a robust, secure distributed object oriented solution to a problem specification.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
No recommendations listed
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
Requirements
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
  • Multi-Threading
    Thread States; life cycle of a thread; thread Priorities and thread Scheduling; thread synchronization; Multi-threading with GUI.
  • Collections
    Lists; Collection algorithms; Package java.util; Maps; Synchronized Collections; Unmodifiable collections.
  • Distributed Objects
    Object distributed over multiple jvm’s using a technology like RMI, Sockets. Call back , remote object activation.
  • Signed and Sealed objects
    Signing objects (so that you know that what was signed is what is retrieved); Sealing an object (so that only the intended recipients can view the object).
  • Generics
    Generic Methods; Overloading Generic Methods; Generic classes; Wild cards in methods that accept type parameters.
  • Real Time Type Identification and Reflection
    Finding out about methods, constructors, class fields; Invoking methods by name; creating new objects.
  • Design Patterns
    What is a design pattern; Commonly used design patterns e.g. observer, factory method, Singleton.
