Module content

This module introduces the principles of netcentric computing that can be applied to the WWW and internet as well as to distributed applications.  After completing this module, a student will have gained, as outcomes, knowledge of how to integrate various programming and web-based technologies.  Particular outcomes include gaining knowledge on the concepts of client and server side programming, web-based applications, port and socket interaction, writing programmes that require remote function calls and achieving database connectivity using remote SQL calls. The supporting technologies of mark-up languages like HTML and scripting languages like JavaScript are also studied. In order to practically demonstrate that a student has reached these outcomes, students will be required to use, integrate and maintain the necessary software and hardware by completing a number of smaller practical assignments whereafter integrating all these technologies into a comprehensive and practical netcentric programming project is required.
