Content

This unit introduces students to designing software by exploring in detail the development of software designs from a problem statement using the techniques of object-oriented analysis and design. The resulting designs are expressed in UML notation. Topics covered include designing systems with data abstraction, data encapsulation, inheritance, generalisation and specialisation, object-oriented analysis and design techniques, design by contract, design and reusability, and the role of software engineering concepts for managing software development. This unit introduces the concepts of programming languages and object-oriented programming, and provides practical experience in the development of object-oriented programs. The unit examines in detail the relationship between the design of an object-oriented system and its implementation. Concepts covered include language syntax and semantics, classes as templates for objects, method development, implementation of class relationships, constructors and destructors, polymorphism, dynamic memory management, error detection and handling, testing and debugging, terminal and file input/output, and programming modules. In addition to developing new software, students will gain experience in testing, debugging and maintaining existing systems. Professional and ethical issues directly related to the topic are addressed during the unit study.
