Course objective
  1. To make students familiar with the idea of component programming
  2. Application of Java programming language and related: products, tools, libraries and technologies dedicated for component oriented software development (in the sense of object oriented programming).
Learning outcomes
  1. EXPLAINS SPECIFICATIONS of the three-layer application architecture, i.e. data, application logic and user interface,
  2. APPLIES TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION of standard packages/libraries in a device-independent language, especially, the most frequently used components representing data structures and algorithms,
  3. RECOGNIZES BASIC MECHANISMS AND METHODS of communication between software and external data sources, e.g. databases,
  4. IS ABLE TO project hierarchies of classes and packages to develop a reusable components that complete requirements of the three-layer architecture and tasks assigned to each layer,
  5. CAN USE sample codes and components and create his/her own using libraries, packages and /or components, classes and methods to develop application logic and data layers,
  6. APPLIES packages and components with open-source techniques to create and develop application logic layer and data layer,
  7. ADAPTS CHOSEN MECHANISMS AND METHODS of communication in software projected and implemented according to the three-layer-architecture model using components
  8. CAN COMMUNICATE developed software with users and with external data sources using chosen components and libraries via graphical user interfaces (GUI) via ODBC,
  9. EVALUATES compatibility of own and other sample projects with the requirements of the three layer architecture of applications,
  10. DISCUSSES AND JUDGES usability and compatibility of sample components, libraries or packages in a chosen technology and IS ABLE TO IMPROVE them via overriding classes and methods and other object oriented methods.
Assessment methods
Learning outcomes 1-7 -> Evaluation of laboratory exercises, evaluation of the laboratory practical test, evaluation of the exam

The laboratory grade is an average of grades from the practical laboratory test and laboratory exercises
The final grade is the weighted mean of grades from the lecture exam (40%) and from the laboratory (60%)
        50%-59.99% - 3
        60%-69.99% - 3.5
        70%-79.99% - 4
        80%-89.99% - 4.5
        90%-100% - 5
