  1. The aim of this report is to outline what exactly are GNU and the free software foundation.

    The GNU project is not limited to just operating systems, it provides a whole spectrum of software. This includes application software and recreational software such as games. They also provide software for people who are not computer experts to help beginners use the GNU system. The Free Software Foundation is a tax-exempt charity that is also the principal sponsor of the GNU Project. They rely on support from individuals and last year over 67% of their operating funds came from individual donors rather than money from corporations or grant-making foundations.

  2. We are required to develop a new version of a widely used word-processing software for an international organization.

    RAD model emphasizes extremely short development cycle. 2. The project is not that large and complex. 3. Software can be properly modularized- And RAD is a component based software model. 4. Each major function can be addressed by a separate RAD team and then integrated to form the whole software. 5. Customer's requirement states that new generation version is needed- RAD uses the latest fourth generation techniques for the development of a software. 6. Time factor is the main concern. Because of the reason that dead lines are quite tight and the competition is intense, RAD would be the most suitable approach for developing the software.

  3. Systems Development and Implementation

    * Network effects - The increase in value of the application with the increase in number of users that use the application. * Usage - Higher the usage (more number of users and more use per user), higher the value. * Quality and performance - Defects observed in the system, the volume that the system can handle and its response time are some of the factors. * Usability - Users' perception of how easy it is to use the application * Flexibility and extensibility - Flexibility in meeting changing requirements is valued, especially in business applications.

  4. Comparison between documents collected from three different organisations.

    The purpose of 'A' is an application form for entering a university. Both 'B' and 'C' are recruiting staff. Although the basic formats of all three forms are similar in the way there are questions presented to the reader, the reader then answers the questions in the space provided. The layout and context are very different in each. Colour Schemes of the Application Forms At first glance 'A' stands out the most this is due to the effective colour scheme used. The colour blue is used as the headings for each sections; questions are in red and the answers to be given in black.

  5. Explain the Emergence of Markup Languages.

    This means SGML allows computer to check, for instance, that users do not mistakenly enter a third-level heading without first having entered a second-level heading. According to Martin Bryan, the SGML language allows users to do the followings: * Link files together to form composite documents. * Identify where illustrations are to be incorporated into text files. * Create different versions of a document in a single file. * Add editorial comments to a file. * Provide information to supporting programs.

  6. Describe and discuss the structure of attitudes and how attitudes are acquired.

    The two-component models show the attitude structure as being more complex than the one-component model. The two-component model agrees that there is an evaluation of the object or situation for which the attitude is being placed on, but it also suggests that there is an internal predisposition that effects this evaluation either positively or negatively. This internal information may change the original evaluative response and create a somewhat different attitude towards the stimuli. The next step up from the two-component model is the three-component model of the structure of attitudes. This uses the same concept of the internal predisposition affecting the attitude, yet it breaks this down into a more detailed view.

  7. "Automatic model transformations using extended UML object diagrams in modeling environments".

    The output can be documentation, source code, net list or any other model created by the user. The problem relies on the automatic translation of problem domain1 to the target domain. Few solutions to this problem do exist and the evaluation of these methods is the other focus of the paper. The author also introduces his solution and introduces the concept called 'domain mapping'. RELEVANCE TO LECTURE TOPICS This paper discusses the issue of output generation from object diagrams. Our software engineering course structure does not have any explicit module in output generation. Since creating object diagrams is a substantial part in the process of the out put generation, the following are related topics.
