WEEK 1: STRUCTURED VERSUS OBJECT-ORIENTED DESIGN

4040 unread replies.8585 replies.

Structured and object-oriented designs are the two main contenders for programming methodologies relevant to the creation of documentation for application programs. The choice of methodologies will greatly affect how we approach the challenge and what programming languages we will have at our disposal. Based on this week’s text chapter and some relevant web resources, as the discussion progresses, let us discuss the differences between structured and object-oriented designs and their merits and faults. Explain, in brief, what you learned from such readings.

WEEK 3: VIRTUAL LAB

4747 unread replies.8787 replies.

After reading the assigned chapter for this week, discuss what you learned from the readings. You may also ask questions if anything is not clear, and continue these discussions throughout the week.

As a progressive discussion in this thread topic, solve the exercises from the textbook, and briefly explain the topic concepts. You are expected to solve the listed exercises in the given order so as to avoid repeated solutions. The first person will post the solution to the first exercise. The next person will comment on that post, and then post the solution to the next question, and so on. If anyone disagrees with another’s solution, they must post why and their own solution. While posting here, I suggest you solve the problems sequentially, start the first line of your post with a question tag, such as: Chapter # Qu #, for example, Ch.3 Exercise # 1. This will easily help us to keep track of where we are.

Also, you may discuss difficulties that arise while completing the week’s homework assignments under a thread that will be created for such discussion. You are expected to help and guide each other, but not to post the homework solutions here.

Note:This is a discussion, and not just a forum for posting the answers to the questions. You should post responses with analysis, ideas, and summaries to be shared by all. Although you may solve the exercises completely at home, you are expected to post the responses to part of the question per the directions above and also allow others to participate in the problem solving and discussion process. Please avoid repeated answers once confirmed.

WEEK 4: OFF THE SHELF

5151 unread replies.9393 replies.

Our TCO C this week covers the challenge of building information system (IS) applications vs. using off-the-shelf alternatives, sometimes called COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf). What is that anyway? How are systems provided for your organization? So, let us know what your organization is doing in this area. Building everything? Buying everything? Or a mixture of both? And, how effective is the process?

WEEK 6: ARRAYS AND E-COMMERCE

4040 unread replies.5151 replies.The use of arrays opens up several possibilities for us. Why would we want to use them? For ordinary arrays, we can use them even if we do not know the total number of data values to be processed. One of the more interesting features of arrays involves the ability to create execution time arrays at program run time. This is a pretty powerful feature of programming. To start this discussion topic, identify some arrays used in your organization or an organization for which you know, the business applications, and share the information.

(TCOs C-F) List the names of subroutines of the hierarchy chart, and then write complete pseudocode for the following problem. You will not have to create a data dictionary for this exercise.

Problem: Students get a discount on the tuition paid. The discount is based on a student’s code and the registered number of course credits. A student with a code “M” for a military job, and registered for more than four credits is eligible for 5% discount on the tuition amount. A student with a code “C” for a corporate employee, and registered for more than six credits is eligible for 4% discount on the tuition amount.

Produce the pseudocode logic for an algorithm that will compute the tuition’ discount for each student. The information is given as follows:

– The output will consist of a screen display showing the student’s name, code, and discount received.

– The input will consist of the file with records containing the student’s name, code, and tuition amount.

– The processing will compute the discount received by each student. If the student’s code is other than “M” or “C”, there should be no discount on the tuition amount.
