Information systems consist of modern elements such as database systems, networks, multi-platform distributed computing, web infrastructure and multimedia computing. In this course we will address these areas individually and also where they intersect to gain a basic understanding of how information technology can be used to solve real problems.
We will develop techniques to design, develop and implement distributed business software. Emphasis will be on the following areas:
- Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) using Java Swing classes
- Management of data in Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) with SQL
- Integration of distributed systems using object brokering systems such as CORBA
