Needs assessment
Needs Assessment

  • What is the learning problem or opportunity?

  • An advanced Enterprise Java Platform design and programming class needs to be put in place by Universities or Community College Computer Science programs.

  • 2. What is currently available?

  • A search of the top bachelor and masters computer science programs showed that only introductory Java and Enterprise Java programming classes are available for students.

  • What should be available?

  • A class should be made available with advanced topics for the Enterprise Java Platform. Advanced topics need to include instruction on the design of N-Tier applications and best practices.

  • 4. Explain the gap analysis between what is available and what should be available.

  • Students are only taught the Java platform fundamentals, which do not prepare the student properly for entry level programming positions in the Information Technology or Software Engineering industries.

  • What is your recommended solution for filling the gap?

  • Prepare a 2 semester curriculum of classroom lectures and labs that focus on advanced topics of the Enterprise Java Platform to prepare a student how to design and development a web application.

Instructional goal
Instructional Goal

  • After completing the Enterprise Java Platform program the student will be able to properly design an N-Tier web application leveraging the Enterprise Java Platform. The students will be introduced to industry best practices, technology frameworks, and a design and development methodology that will enable the students to properly model, design, build, and test a modern web application leveraging the Enterprise Java Platform. The student will demonstrate the following learning goals via hands on lab classes:

    • Demonstrate knowledge of the history of the Enterprise Java Platform.

    • Demonstrate how to design and build presentation components leveraging JSF, Facelets, and AJAX using event driven design methodology.

    • Demonstrate how to design and build business services leveraging EJB3 or SpringBeans using use case driven design methodology.

    • Demonstrate how to design and build persistence components leveraging JPA using use case driven design methodology.

    • Demonstrate how to design, build, and test of complete web application using a real world Use Case Study to drive the business requirements.

Summative assessment and learning outcomes
Summative Assessment and Learning Outcomes

  • The computer science student will be evaluated in their knowledge of the Enterprise Java Platform. The learning outcomes will be measured through a series of classroom tests and by having the student design and build an actual web application in a lab environment. Part of the students grade will also include presenting the class with a design review of their web application and by completing peer code reviews of other students web application lab work.

Learner characteristics
Learner Characteristics

  • The Advanced Enterprise Java Platform computer science class will consist of 10-20 students. The students will be taught in both a classroom setting and a hands on lab setting. Prerequisite classes for the student needs to include Object Orientated principles, an introductory Java Programming language class, and an introductory class on the Enterprise Java Platform (Servlets, JSP, HTML, etc). The students must have access to a modern PC running Windows XP (or later), Mac OSX 10.5 (or later), or Linux Ubunto (or like distribution) and have access to the Internet.

Learning context
Learning Context

  • The Advanced Enterprise Java Platform class will be taught in both a classroom setting and a lab setting. The class will not be offered via an online classroom setting. The student must have a modern PC that is capable of running the design and development tools. The student must have access to the Internet.

  • The classroom setting will include typical instructor led lectures that will introduce the student to the history of the Enterprise Java Platform and also the proper foundational background and best practices for building a N-Tier web application. The learning foundation introduced in the classroom environment will be used to design and build an actual web application based on a real world Use Case Study in a lab environment. The lab environment will be taught using instructors and lab assistants.

Plan for implementation 1
Plan for Implementation (1)

  • The Advanced Enterprise Java Platform instructor-led class will be executed over a 16 week semester.

  • Introduction and History of the Enterprise Java Platform – 1 week

  • Design and development tools – 1 week

  • Design and development Presentation Components – 4 weeks

Evaluation strategies
Evaluation Strategies

  • Because this is an advanced course, and such a course has not been previously offered at the university, senior level computer science students wishing to learn advanced topics of the Enterprise Java Platform will initially be offered the opportunity to take this class on a voluntary basis. A student survey (using a Likert scale) will be delivered to these students to measure the effectiveness of the class. The survey will focus on measuring whether the students learned the necessary foundation principles and best practices to build modern N-Tier web applications. Careful evaluation of all design and code artifacts will also be completed on the Use Case Study lab work.

Recommendations
Recommendations

  • Possible future recommendations and enhancement for this course may include:

    • Advanced options for building Presentation Components. This may include the inclusion of instruction for using JSF component libraries, such as JBoss RichFaces, ICEFaces, etc. Other topics might include advanced use of AJAX and other RIA technologies.

    • Advanced options for building Business Service Components. This may include the inclusion of instruction on Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) principles, practical use of dependency injection, and knowledge of exception handling best practices.

    • Advanced options for building Persistence Service Components. This may include the inclusion of instruction on Object Relational Mapping (ORM), record locking best practices, performance tuning, and knowledge of exception handling best practices.

    • This course needs to be continuously re-evaluated to ensure that changes in industry trends and technology shifts are accounted for and any necessary changes in the curriculum be considered to account for these changes.
