Lecture Announcements

   25 January 2007

bullet

All project demonstrations and evaluations will be on Friday, 26 January, between 9:00 and 12:30. A project demo duration will be 30-45 minutes depending on projects. Estimate your time using your row in this table.

bullet

All team members must be in the lab at your presentation time. When evaluating a project team, other teams will not be in the lab.

bullet

You should come at least 30-45 minutes before your demo time, your team may be called earlier depending on the project presentations on Friday morning. 

bullet

Upload all your project work to your project web site before your demo time.

bullet

You will submit your printed documents, updated RAD, SAD, and UM, before your demonstration.

bullet

Your running program, UML modeling and development tools (Borland Together 2006 Release 2 for Eclipse) must be ready before you show your final work.

bullet

Your program must be running without your development tool! That is you should have deployed and put all your class files into a JAR file and run it using only a Java Run Time Environment (JRE). In short, it should be a product, not a developing application in a development environment!

bullet

You should also bring your Project Contribution Report. Prepare it using this template.

bullet

When evaluating your project, I'll use this document for your project organization, tasks and assignments. For grading criteria for Coding and Product (CP), look at the announcement written on 20 December 2006 given below.

   12 January 2007

bullet

Final exam: 15 January 2007, 14:30, E-302.

bullet

This is a comprehensive exam covering some important topics of Software Engineering given in this semester. You are responsible from all chapters.

bullet

It is a closed book and notes exam.

bullet

This year's midterm questions and answers are here.

bullet

This is a sample final exam given in the Spring 2005 semester. There are also partial solutions in the zip file. First try to solve the problems, then look at the solutions.

bullet

I hope you have learned some new exciting things ... modern object oriented analysis, design, and implementation techniques using UML, Design Patterns, Java and Software Development Processes to develop a complex software project with a small team having limited resources (qualified developers, time, ...) and some people related problems...

bullet

Have a good final exam period... I wish you all the best for your future Software Engineering in your professional life...  H. G.

   20 December 2006

bullet

The next Monday (25 December) after the class time (13:00 - 16:00) is the sharp deadline for SAD and your system architecture, and updated RADs. You should also bring your old graded RADs.

bullet

Please use the SAD template having 10 headings given in lecture slides on page 152. You can get some ideas from the SAD samples given below, but don't use their formats.

bullet

You have to show your software architecture and first working prototype based on PCMEF meta architecture using Together and your implementation tool (Eclipse or JBuilder) in the computer lab on Monday afternoon.

bullet

You have to show your packages, their dependencies, class diagrams, your updated functional model (Use Case model and companion HTML documents), updated some dynamic views (sequence, activity, state diagrams depending on your project) using Together
------------------------

bullet

Your User Manual (UM), Coding and Product (CP) will be graded on Friday, 12 January 2007. Your Process and Communication (PC) have being graded for some time...

bullet

The grading criteria for Coding and Product (CP):
Software Architecture and Development Techniques   (35)
  Architecture and Project Difficulty (Subsystem decomposition based on PCMEF, packages, classes, inheritance, ...) (20)
  Applying UML and Patterns (15)

Coding and Implementation (35)
 
Coding Style and Coding Documentation (15)
       (Java coding style and documentation - generated Javadoc HTML API showing packages, classes and their explanations )
  Testing Process (10)
  Audits and Metrics for Source Code (10)

Product (30)
  Final Product for Naive End User: Working Software (Functionality, usability, user friendliness, ) (30)

bullet

The announcements on this page may be updated depending on your questions and some new needs. So please check this page for a while ...

   4 December 2006

bullet

You have your midterm exam next Monday, 11th of December at 10:00 am, in class.

bullet

I will continue the System Design in the first hour, so please come also to the lecture before the exam hour.

bullet

The exam will touch all topics covered so far (slide 73 of the lecture 6).

bullet

It will be closed book and notes.

bullet

Look at the last time schedule of our course given above and arrange your project work according to this time table... 

bullet

On remaining Mondays including next Monday your project team should come and show your work. Remember the PC, Process and Communication (with talking, documentation and your working product), part of the course. That's very important, don't neglect it, you will be graded for PC also ...

bullet

A midterm sample from previous years.

   6 November 2006

bullet

Please download this HW3 (Introduction to Design Patterns) and do it until next lecture (13 November, Monday, class time).

bullet

You have to also submit your final Project Proposal next Monday.

   30 October 2006

bullet

Welcome back to CENG 401 after two weeks!

bullet

This was a really long term break, so we have to compensate it with
1) a homework assignment (HW2),
2) the first draft of your project proposal (read below, 10 October) and
3) a lecture makeup. (Day, time, class ???)

bullet

You should hand in your HW2 and project proposal next Monday, 6 November.

bullet

Before writing your proposal your team (with all project team members) should talk to your TA and/or me in our office hours.

bullet

The names of project teams, later their projects and links to their web pages will be posted to the web page of your TA.

bullet

The results of HW1 are posted here. Look at this page for your grades and course grading.

   17 October 2006

bullet

The second homework assignment (Introduction to UML and a Modeling Tool) will be given after Ramazan Bayrami.

   10 October 2006

bullet

HW1: Please download the following MP3 radio recording from here (43.1 MB) or Software Engineering Radio internet web site.

bullet

After downloading the file, listen to it and answer the questions in this file.

bullet

Start to form your project team (5 members) and think about your project. You will submit your project proposal soon...  You can use this Project Proposal template when preparing your proposal.

bullet

When considering your project organization, use this document. Customize this simple project organization model for your project. I'll update it later.

  25 September-2006

bullet

Welcome to CENG 302 Software Engineering! In this course you will be introduced to how to conquer real complex and changing software systems.

bullet

In this course you will learn modern object oriented analysis, design, and implementation techniques using UML, Design Patterns, Java and Software Development Processes to develop a complex software project with a small team having limited resources (qualified developers, time) and some people related problems.

bullet

Try to visit my Software Engineering page regularly, I will try to update it frequently during the semester.

bullet

Start to visit your TA Melek Oktay's web page regularly. He will make his announcements on his page. The homework solutions, some program samples and documents related to his activities will be posted here.

Course Materials

   Lecture Slides
bullet

Purpose: To allow better concentration in lecture by reducing note-taking pressure and to provide a study-aid before and after lecture.

bullet

Disclaimers: (a) I may not follow these slides exactly in class. (b) Students are responsible for what I say in class. (c) Reading these slides is not a substitute for attending lecture.

bullet

Almost all slides used during the course will available via the following links. I may also skip several slides during the lecture (?00 slides would be too much!). They are included in the course material for completeness and to provide a good reference for your future professional software engineering projects.
