The subject introduces to the design process of a software system from requirements gathering to a detailed object-oriented design. It is based on existing development methodologies, especially object-oriented, and the UML language will be used as a dominant formalism. The subject is oriented mainly on reliability analysis and formal and informal methods to reduce error rate in design phases.

Study Objective:

The course is aimed to learn the student how to design a

software system. After successful completion of the course,

the student is able to actively apply the object-oriented

software design methodology using UML and to design multi-

threaded applications. Further on, he gets an overview of

technologies for distributed application design including

RPC, RMI, web services, Corba and COM+.
