CS 562 provides an intensive focus on advanced design and
implementation of distributed object computing (DOC) software. Key
topics covered in this course include:
Design and implementation based on design patterns and frameworks are
central themes to enable the construction of reusable, extensible,
efficient, and maintainable DOC software. In addition, abstraction
based on design patterns and OO techniques (such as
separation of interface from implementation) will be the central
concepts and principles throughout the course. These concepts and
principles will enable you to construct reusable, extensible,
efficient, and maintainable communication software.
- Reuse of design patterns and software architectures
- Developing communication applications using OO languages (C++),
OO frameworks (ACE), and CORBA (TAO).
Design patterns will be taught so that you will have good role models
for structuring their own designs, as well as to clearly articulate
the tradeoffs of alternative methods for designing systems. OO
techniques will be taught so that you will learn by example how to
build highly decentralized communication software architectures that
decouple inter-dependencies between components.
We will construct communication software components and applications
using popular programming tools available in the modern operating
systems, such as make, emacs, dbx, gprof, CVS, C++, CORBA, ACE, and TAO. You are
expected to be familiar with C++ and UNIX.
