KIT206 Software Design & Development KIT506 Software Application Design & Implementation

A2 Release 1: 2020-08-27 1/4

Assignment 2: C# Application & Test Report

The Brief

Your small development team of (ideally) three people has been asked to implement and test the

Human Resources Information System desktop application. Your software product will be a databasebacked

desktop application with a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) graphical front end,

implemented in C#. As part of your development efforts you will prepare and apply a small collection

of test cases to verify that the completed application meets some of the key requirements agreed

with the client.

Submission

Your progress will be assessed, and feedback given, during your Week 11

tutorial. Additional details

of this checkpoint will be provided after the mid-semester break.

By 1500 (3pm) Friday October 16th submit deliverables 1 and 2 to the Assignment 2 – C# Application

& Test Report assignment folder on the unit’s MyLO site. Each member should also complete the peer

review activity via Buddycheck on MyLO.

Team Formation

Your teammates should be selected from other students in your tutorial group whom you have not

worked with in Assignment 1. Once the grouping has been approved by your tutor, each member

should go to the Groups page on the unit’s MyLO site, select the same group from the list, and add

themselves. A fourth member, if required, can only be added by your tutor.

Deliverables

There are two deliverables in this assignment:

1. a zipped VisualStudio project that contains the WPF-based application that must be

submitted to the assignment folder, accompanied by

2. a completed test report in PDF, which must also be submitted to the assignment folder.

The starting point for developing the application

A standard OO model for the system (some scenarios, all class diagrams and some sequence diagrams)

will be released after the Assignment 1 due date, along with details of the database schema. You may

then use your group members’ joint experience of developing their own OO models to determine the

rest of your design. You may also deviate from the standard design as you see fit. This will give

different development teams some freedom in their implementation choices.

OO Model versus WPF

In the OO model each view is a separate class, which in WPF corresponds to defining a UserControl

for each major view. Because this may complicate some of the event handling code, it is acceptable

in the assignment to place separate views directly within the main window. Note, however, that the

HD level of the Use of WPF assessment criterion requires that at least one user control be defined,

and that defining your own controls will actually make each individual source file easier to manage.

WPF is not available in MacOS; development of the GUI and the final stages of the software will need

to be completed in Windows. Please email me (Julian.Dermoudy@utas.edu.au) if this will present

problems.

Development approach

Because the final application requires knowledge of the C# language, how to communicate with a

database using C# (and LINQ) and how to design and construct GUIs using WPF, and because these

topics are to be covered over a period of some weeks, as foreshadowed in the Week 6 lecture, we

recommend that you take a prototyping approach to the development of this application. This will

allow you and your team to make useful progress on parts of the system even before you have

obtained the skills required to implement the whole system. (Note that this will likely entail some

manual copying of source files between projects as you migrate from a console application to a WPF

application.) We suggest the following implementation stages (you may of course adopt a different

development path if you find it suits your team better):

Stage

Timeframe

(semester

week)

Application type & functionality Notes

1 8–9 Console application with entity

(data) classes, partially-implemented

control classes and at least one

database adapter class.

One or more driver classes

containing Main() that can test

features such as filtering of the staff

or unit lists.

1. May have a GUI, but this should

be no more than necessary to

exercise/test implemented

functionality (should be able to

throw this GUI away later).

2. Database adapter will need to

return artificial data.

2 9–10 As above but using live data, which

will substantially ease the burden on

you to create artificial test data.

Draft test cases that are complete in

all details apart from test methods

(which will likely still be high-level

until the GUI is built).

(1) as above

3 11–13 WPF application with custom

controls for different views. Control

classes updated to know about GUI

components and event handlers

connected.

Test cases completed and applied to

your application.

1. Transition will be easiest by

creating a new WPF Application

project and importing the preexisting

class files into it.

2. This cannot be completed on an

Apple computer running MacOS as

WPF is not available on that

platform.

OO Packages and C# Namespaces

As C# applications have a top-level namespace, which was not part of the OO Design, we recommend

that each package in the OO Design becomes a nested namespace within your application’s top-level

namespace (which should be HRIS). Note that the namespace and project name do not have to be the

same, even though Visual Studio will initially make them the same.

The School Database (aka HRIS Database)

The case study MySQL database is available via the following settings:

Database: kit206

User Id: kit206

Password: kit206

Data Source: alacritas.cis.utas.edu.au

KIT206 Software Design & Development KIT506 Software Application Design & Implementation

A2 Release 1: 2020-08-27 3/4

You can also browse the data via phpMyAdmin (append that to the end of the server name). As the

database is shared it will not appear in your own list of databases on alacritas if you log in under your

own user name. An EER Diagram for the database plus some details on enumerated value columns

accompanies this document. If you are not on campus, you will need to use VPN

(https://utas1.servicenow.com/selfservice/?id=kb_category&kb_category=c06bbabbdbd86bc08bf8413b3a9619bb)

to

access the database.

Data quality

The database is currently live and contains fictitious data. The data are consistent in that foreign key

relationships are all valid, although initially there will not be much information in the database. More

entries, or more realistic entries, may be added later in semester, but this is not guaranteed.

The Testing Report

Concurrently with development of the application you will create a test plan containing four test cases

to verify the following subset of requirements in the HRIS RTM:

? SWC 1 (Entry 1 in the RTM)

? UC8_User_views_StaffList

? UC16_User_selects_StaffDetails

? UC24_User_selects_Unit

Each test case will be based on the Test Report Template, which is available on MyLO. Each test case

that is based on a use case should include at least two methods by which the requirement will be

tested. NTH features of use cases should also be tested and so will provide additional methods, even

if they were not implemented; the quality of the test case will be assessed, not the one line outcome

of whether it passes or not. The test cases for the SWC will likely need only one, brief method in order

to be tested.

Ensure that all instructional entries (Repeat the following box…, <Extract the text…, Repeat Method

and Outcome…) and unused method–outcome rows are removed from your submitted test plan. The

document should include a title and your team name on the first page; the first test case can start

immediately below that.

When the application is complete, apply the test plan to it and record the outcome for each method.

Remember that if the outcome is ‘fail’ then an explanation of when (which step) or how must also be

recorded.

Sources of information for compiling the testing plan

Follow the procedures described in Module 5 Use case-Based Testing to derive the test cases for the

indicated SWC and SW entries. The RTM will be your primary resource for identifying the criteria for

each test case. The original requirements document may also provide some useful information. The

structured scenarios you prepared during Assignment 1, in conjunction with the specific application

being tested, will provide the basic structure of the testing methods in each test case, since they

describe the user’s actions in each use case.

Assessment

The assessment criteria for the final submission are available in an accompanying document, in Excel

and PDF formats.

KIT206 Software Design & Development KIT506 Software Application Design & Implementation

A2 Release 1: 2020-08-27 4/4

Your progress will also be assessed during your week 11 tutorial, which will contribute up to 5% to

your final grade in the unit. The assessment criteria for this check will be released after the midsemester

break.

Peer assessment

Peer assessment will be completed as part of the tutorial in week 13. You will have the opportunity

to provide both qualitative and quantitative feedback on your teammates’ performance via

Buddycheck on MyLO.
