This unit focuses on network applications including its design and development in a Java programming environment. Students will learn about the Java programming language as well as skills to develop networked applications using the language and libraries that supported it. Students will begin with an overview of the programming language to see its similarities to other modern OO languages. They are then introduced to basic Java development through the Java applet before students move on to more complex application development requiring an understanding of both low level Java networking facilities such as sockets, Web URLs and datagrams, and higher level object-oriented networking such as Web Services and CORBA. To extend the capability of network programming, other related topics will also be introduced.


Two assignments (20% each) 40%, examination 60%
