During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

ELEC5619: Object Oriented Application Frameworks

This unit aims to introduce students to the main issues involved in producing large Internet systems by using and building application frameworks. Frameworks allow great reuse so developers do not have to design and implement applications from scratch, as students have done in ELEC3610 The unit lays down the basic concepts and hands on experience on the design and development of enterprise systems, emphasizing the development of systems using design patterns and application frameworks. A project-based approach will introduce the problems often found when building such systems, and will require students to take control of their learning. A project-based approach will introduce the problems often found when building such systems, and will require students to take control of their learning. Several development Java frameworks will be used, including Spring, Hibernate, and others. Principles of design patterns will also be studied.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. write reports and make presentations to communicate technical and often complex material in clear and concise terms for a specific target audience
  • LO2. work in a group effectively and efficiently by assuming clearly defined roles and responsibilities and then interacting in a constructive manner with the group by both contributing and evaluating others' viewpoints in order to reach a multilateral agreement on and execution of the solution
  • LO3. deploy a large site using a particular application framework to the extent of the material presented
  • LO4. undertake conception and design by investigating, researching and systematically compiling the various information resources available, in order to deliver an e-business project
  • LO5. evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using domain specific frameworks with a particular focus on web applications
  • LO6. customize a Content Management System (CMS) to particular user requirements using tools, principles and techniques developed throughout the course
  • LO7. write and modify Java code using Spring and Hibernate in a web application
  • LO8. compare and contrast different Web Application Frameworks available in the market using the principles and techniques developed in the course
  • LO9. assess the differences between using application frameworks for software development and other methods with less reusability.
  • LO10. understuand security issues in object oriented application frameworks.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for the relevant session.
