Course objectives
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
understand functions and structure of object-oriented system described by UML diagrams;
transform common design models (classes, interfaces and packages) into components;
formally define provided and required component interfaces be means of IDL, WSDL, etc.;
employ patterns at various stages of software life cycle (analysis, design, architecture, coding);
evaluate qualitative attributes of UML models (reliability, security, etc.);
choose suitable methodology for OO systems development;
  • Object-oriented paradigm, object properties, principles of abstraction and decomposition. Principles of OO analysis and design.
  • Models of classes, packages and components. Interface as contract. IDL, SWDL.
  • Refinement of UML semantics by means of stereotypes and OCL.
  • Software re-use, software patterns at various stages of software life cycle (analysis, design, architecture, coding).
  • Design patterns in detail.
  • Analysis patterns, Java patterns, anti-patterns.
  • Code refactoring („refactoring to patterns“).
  • Software architectures, architectural patterns.
  • Component systems. Qualitative attributes and their evaluation.
  • Object-oriented methods for software development, application of UML models in RUP.
  • Special methods and architectures: MDD, FDD, SOA, ...
  • Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), employing OCL in MDA.

Teaching methods
Theory in the form of lecturer's presentations, practical examples as the part of theoretical presentations, class discussion, reading.
Assessment methods
Written final exam (multiple choice test + practical UML modeling). Final assessment can be improved by solving small practical examples presented during lectures.
