    • the requirements you fulfilled previous year can be accepted (but only in the scope of a single study)
      • explicitly write about it to the teacher of the particular practical
      • if you did not write the home project program, the topic is not automatically accepted
        • but it is not necessary to think out a new one; you can propose the original one
    • if you do not repeat the course but do not want to attend practicals, you can also sign yourself to the "virtual" practical
    • for the "virtual" practical, there are the same requirements and deadline as for the "regular" ones

        • if you repeat the course, write about already fulfilled requirements
        • if you do not repeat the course, propose a topic of the home project program
      • work on homeworks
  • implementations of exercises from the practicals can be obtained here
    • WARNING: commonly there are incomplete implementations

Exam and "zápočet"

  • Exam is a written test
  • To obtain "zápočet" it is necessary to create home project program and successfully pass the practical programming test
  • Next, in the middle of the semester there will be six mandatory home-works.
    • It is necessary to obtain at least 225 of points from them (out of 450 points).
  • Practicals attendance is mandatory!
    • If you miss more than 3 practicals, you have to obtain at least 315 from the home-works.
  • Topics for the home program project has to be agreed till 13th January 2017
    • the topic is agreed with the teacher of the particular practical you are assigned to.
    • without properly agreed topic you will not obtain "započet"
  • Submitting the home program project
    • till the end of February; the latest deadline is 26th May 2017 12:00 (noon)
    • the project is submitted by email; only if it is necessary the project is shown personally.
    • the project is submitted as a zip archive, which contains:
      • sources,
      • build.xml file for ant (allows compilation, javadoc generation, and execution of the project),
        • Maven can be used too
      • user documentation (as a plain-text or html or pdf) so the project can be launched and tested,
        • developer documentation can be javadoc only (all methods commented, commented packages, basic info on the overview page)
      • explicitly specified version of Java, which is necessary for compilation and execution (ideally specified directly in build.xml
  • Dates for exams and practical tests will be posted in SIS
  • Information about exam
    • duration 45 minut
    • written
    • no need to have "započet" in advance
    • no resources allowed (books, notes, slides,...)

    • there will be one exam during summer exam period and maybe one or two exams during the semester
  • Information about practical tests
    • duration 3 hours
    • in the Unix lab
    • you can use any printed resources (books, notes,...)
      • all electronic resources and network communication is forbidden (the exceptions are API documentation (without tutorials) and the course website, i.e. slides and examples)
    • there will be also two tests during the summer exam period
    • there are 5 attempts to pass the test
  • Homeworks will be posted here and announced during the lecture
