Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Fundamental knowledge in relational database concepts, including relational modelling & design, relational algebra & SQL, conceptual modelling, and transactions & concurrency, equivalent to ISYS1055/1057 Database Concepts.

Ability to write programs in an object-oriented programming language, equivalent to one of these courses: COSC1284 Programming Techniques (Java) OR COSC1073 Programming 1 OR COSC1295 Advanced Programming (formerly Java for Programmers) OR former Programming 2.


Course Description

This course introduces you to the principles and practice of developing applications using the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) and the C# programming language. Topics include the CLI, C#, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, Web services, and security.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the development of the following capabilities:

  • Enabling knowledge: the .NET Common Language Infrastructure, Web service protocols, security and performance issues.
  • Critical analysis: Analyse and model requirements and constraints for the purpose of designing and implementing CLI Web applications.
  • Problem solving: Design and implement a CLI Web application that accommodates specified requirements and constraints, based on modeling or requirements specification.
  • Communication: Motivate and explain complex CLI Web application and Web service concepts, relevant alternatives and decision recommendations to IT specialists, via technical reports of professional standard.


On completion of this course you should be able to:

  • design and build Web applications using the C# programming language.
  • integrate Web applications with a back-end database.
  • build simple Web services.
  • successfully address issues of security and performance in designing and implementing Web applications.


Overview of Learning Activities

The learning activities included in this course are:

  • key concepts will be explained in lectures, classes or online, where syllabus material will be presented and the subject matter will be illustrated with demonstrations and examples.
  • tutorials and/or labs and/or group discussions (including online forums) focussed on projects and problem solving will provide practice in the application of theory and procedures, allow exploration of concepts with teaching staff and other students, and give feedback on your progress and understanding.
  • assignments, as described in Overview of Assessment (below), requiring an integrated understanding of the subject matter and
  • private study, working through the course as presented in classes and learning materials, and gaining practice at solving conceptual and technical problems.

Attendance:
While a minimum attendance standard is not compulsory, non-attendance may seriously jeopardise the chances of success in this course. Clearly, non-attendance at an assessment will result in failure of that assessment. Where visa conditions apply, attendance is compulsory.


Overview of Learning Resources

You will make extensive use of computer laboratories and relevant software provided by the School. You will be able to access course information and learning materials through myRMIT and may be provided with copies of additional materials in class or via email. Lists of relevant reference texts, resources in the library and freely accessible Internet sites will be provided.

Use the RMIT Bookshop’s http://www.campusstore.rmit.edu.au/collections/books/computer-science-it to find any recommended textbook(s).


Overview of Assessment

The assessment for this course comprises practical work involving the development of computer programs and a final exam. Part of the assessment will be based on a large group project that involves the design, development and implementation of a Web application.
