UFCEUS-20-2 Web Programming

Lecture 1Module Introduction & Outline


Teaching and learning:

  • 1 hour lecture

  • 1hour workshop sessions

  • emphasis on both individual & working with others in workshop sessions

  • Preparation will be required – readings and other material listed for each week (in the Resources column of the module contents & outline page) should be done at home in preparation for the following week

    Assessment:

  • Coursework - 1 piece – weighting 50% - will be an individual design and programming task. After hand-in, you will also be required to do a 15 minute presentation to your tutor illustrating and explaining your application.

  • Examination – weighting 50% - 3 hours - compulsory part 40% - selective part 60%.


Course materials:

No specific set textbook is required – all course materials, lecture notes, workshop notes, readings and other resources are pointed to and made available via the module contents & outline page.

However it is strongly recommend that you acquire one of the following texts for help with the assignment:

Nixon, Robin : Learning PHP, MySQL, JavaScript and CSS: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Dynamic Websites : O'Reilly Media, 2nd ed., 2012

Ullman, Larry : PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites: Visual QuickPro Guide : Peachpit Press, 4th ed., 2011

McLaughlin, Brett : PHP & MySQL: The Missing Manual : Pogue Press, 2011


Course Content Outline:

  • PHP programming (including functions, sessions, forms processing, database integration & xml processing)

  • XML, XPATH, XSLT & XML Schema

  • Relational Database Theory

  • Structured Query Language (SQL)

  • E-R modelling

  • Data Normalization

  • Javascript & JQuery

  • Document Object Model (DOM) & AJAX

  • Tiered Architectures & MVC

  • Software Development Methodologies (Waterfall, Prototyping, Spiral, RAD etc.)


Presumed (prior) knowledge:

  • The practical (programming) part of the module will largely be focused on teaching Web Development (using PHP) and Database Theory / Practice.

  • However, we will not be focused on teaching HTML5/XHTML or CSS as it is presumed that students already have some knowledge of these technologies.

  • If this is NOT the case for you – you will need to use the on-line resources pointed to by the module contents & outline page and quickly learn these technologies in your own time.


Assignment (coursework) pre-amble:

  • Accounts for 50% of the overall mark.

  • A design and programming task using and refactoring a basic PHP based framework.

  • 6-8 weeks allowed to complete task (tutor will notify about specific hand-in date)

  • 15 minute presentation to tutors after hand-in.

  • Learning objectives:

  • Use a range of web oriented software architecture and design principles.

  • Refactor a lightweight PHP-based web framework.

  • Understand and implement both static & dynamic software patterns.

  • Model and implement persistence and transactions via sessions, cookies & DBMS.

  • Understand & apply some security and integrity principles.


Sample exam question (from 2010/11 paper):

Question 4

a) Describe and explain why HTTP is described as a stateless protocol and the possible advantages of using such a protocol.

8 marks

b) What are the mechanisms, techniques and technologies used to maintain state in a HTTP based application?

12 marks

c) Explain how sessions are managed in a PHP based web application.

10 marks
