The test will be three hours but you should only need half that time to complete the test.
The test will be CLOSED book.
There will be 10 short answer questions based on material covered in class.
You are responsible for the material explicitly referenced as “Lecture Notes” for each class in the class schedule. All the material is available on-line at: http://www.site.uottawa.ca/~lpeyton/csi5380schedule.html as well as for download within webct.
You are also responsible for understanding the architecture and design principles that you applied in the course project (part 1) : http://www.site.uottawa.ca/~lpeyton/csi5380project.html . You will have to read and understand simple Java Servlet and JSP code for the test … but you will not have to write any code for the test.
In answering the questions it is expected that you will demonstrate you understand the definitions of key terms and acronyms introduced in this course, and can discuss the relevant issues for electronic commerce and apply the appropriate architectural principles. Listed below are the key terms and acronyms you are expected to know:
