General Information

Overview

This unit introduces you to the practical issues involved in the design and implementation of robust enterprise software applications, enabling business-to-business and business-to-customer operations. You will be learning data persistence and managing persistent objects, which will extend your knowledge of object-oriented programming. You will learn to assemble several open source tools and use well-known design patterns to build portable, highly available and maintainable software applications. You will be applying your knowledge to develop 3-tiered practical enterprise systems with a data persistence tier, business logic layer and a web-based presentation tier.

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Self-reflection

Feedback

Students experienced difficulty in installing Database Server, Application server, and development tools used in this unit.

Recommendation

Detailed software installation instructions and set up guidelines will be provided for Term 2, 2019 delivery of this unit.

Feedback from Self-reflection

Feedback

The one week time window between assignment 3 and assignment 4 is too short.

Recommendation

Assignment 4 specification will changed to reflect students' understanding of enterprise computing as they have learnt from Assignment 3. The one week time window will be enough for this task.

Feedback from Student feedback

Feedback

Students had trouble forming groups for Assignment 3 which is a team based development of a software application.

Recommendation

A detailed membership agreement will be added to the assignment specification to guide the forming of teams; the unit coordinator will facilitate team forming for Distance mode students.

Feedback from Student feedback

Feedback

Some of the unit resources, such as videos and lecture slides, were not of a high quality.

Recommendation

All the lecture slides, lab projects, and tutorial materials will be fully re-developed for Term 2, 2019.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
