Students will practically master conceptual modelling of business structures, they will learn fundamentals of OntoUML notation and methodology. Students will learn fundamentals of pure object-oriented paradigm, i.e. terms object, method, message, class, class instance, composition, inheritance, collections. Students will learn to transform a conceptual model to object-oriented implementation model and they will learn fundamentals of pure object-oriented implementation in Smalltalk and pure object database. Students will learn to formulate rules and queries upon the object database.


Abstract thinking and formalisation skills, algoritimization fundamentals

Study Objective:

The aim of the course is to explain the fundamentals of the object-oriented paradigm in software development, with emphasis on modelling data objects. Even the best object-oriented programming language cannot ensure by itself that a design will meaningfully and efficiently exploit the object paradigm. Knowledge gained in this module forms the basis for correct application of the object-oriented paradigm in the follow-up modules aimed at software engineering and databases.

The goal of the subject is also to train skills of abstraction and conceptualisation, skills important in software engineering, and also a skill to maintain consistency throughout various model levels from the conceptual through implementation to the programme itself. Students are lead to accurate, correct technical and formal expression.
