Course Code and Name: SEEM4530 Introduction to Client/Server Systems

Course Objectives:

This course aims at providing a foundation in decentralized computer systems, using the client/server model. We will introduce the basic concepts of client/server systems including the installation and administration of networking. Students will learn implementation techniques such as Java sockets. Internet-based client/server techniques will also be discussed.

Course Outcomes:

 

  1. Understand the architecture of client/server systems and able to develop applications using client/server communication
  2. Understand the concept of process
  3. Able to design different types of client/server based on the objectives of applications
  4. Understand different network protocols
  5. Able to develop sockets for communication between machines at different nodes in a network
  6. Able to develop client/server systems using Internet standards
