This unit introduces essential object-oriented design methods and language mechanisms, especially the principles of modelling through Rational Unified Process and agile processes using Unified Modeling Language (UML) and Java or C++, both of which are industry standard. Students work in small groups to experience the process of object-oriented analysis, object-oriented design, implementation and testing by building a real-world application. Java or C++ is used as the implementation language and a special emphasis is placed on those features of Java or C++ that are important for solving real-world problems. Advanced software engineering features, including exceptions and name spaces are thoroughly covered.

Through semester assessment (50%) and Final Exam (50%)
Students enrolled in COMP5028/INFO9220 are assumed to have elementary Java programming experience or equivalent experience in another object oriented programming language. This unit does not have assessment with heavy coding task. But some knowledge in object-oriented programming would have big impact on learning experience.
