Objectives

This course offers a comprehensive introduction to emerging distributed architectures and their supporting middleware, and explains how these architectures impact the design of today's information systems.

Contents

Distributed architectures and their supporting middleware have evolved from traditional information systems, following several directions: mobility & ubiquity, peer-to-peer communication, web deployment, etc. In this course, students will learn how to design and deploy such architectures on practical examples. To help students better grasp theoretical concepts, they will incrementally build an application based on such architectures, throughout the semester, using the Java platform.

This course will address the subjects listed below.

  • Web multitier architectures & middleware.
  • Distributed components, separation of concerns.
  • Peer-to-peer communication, mobile multi-media.
  • Ad hoc networks, pervasive Internet.

The evaluation is based on a project done in groups during the semester and on a final exam at the end of the semester. For the retake, a new exam takes place and the evaluation of the group project during the semester is reused to compute the final mark. However, if a student scores less than 3 in the final exam, the mark of the group project is not taken into account to compute her/his final mark.

The course and the course material are in English. French-speaking students can however ask questions and be answered in French.

Evaluation

First attempt

Exam:
Written 2h00 hours
Documentation:
Not allowed
Calculator:
Not allowed
Evaluation:

The evaluation is based on a project done in groups during the semester, and on a final written exam during the ordinary exam session. However, if a student scores less than 3 in the final exam, the mark of the group project is not taken into account to compute her/his final mark.

Retake

Exam:
Oral 0h20 minutes
Documentation:
Not allowed
Calculator:
Not allowed
Evaluation:

A new final exam takes place during the retake session, oral this time, while the evaluation of the group project done during the semester is simply reused to compute the final mark. However, if a student scores less than 3 in the final exam, the mark of the group project is not taken into account to compute her/his final mark.
