    2. Specific Purpose Application Software: Inventory Management System, Purchasing System, Human Resource Management System, Payroll System, Financial Accounting, Hotel Management and Reservation System etc.

Unit 2: Introduction To Programming

Getting started with Programming using IDE

 Introduction, Rapid Application Development using IDE (Integrated Development Environment) such as Netbeans; Familiarization of IDE using basic Interface components- Label, Text Field, Text Area, Button, Checkbox, Radio Button. (As per appendix A)
 Developing General Application (As per the guidelines at appendix B) – Getting Familiar with Java Swing User Interface components-Frame, Dialog, OptionPane, Panel, ScrollPane, Label, TextField, PasswordField, TextArea, Button, CheckBox, RadioButton, ComboBox, List
 Basic component handling methods and properties: setText(), getText(), isSelected(), setSelected()

Programming Fundamentals

  • Data Types: Concept of data types; Built-in data types – byte, short, int, long, float, double, char, string, boolean
  • Variables: Need to use variable, declaring variables, variable naming convention, assigning value to variables;
  • Integer object method: parseInt
  • Double object method: parseDouble, parseFloat
  • Control Structures:
    Decision Structure – if, if-else, switch;
    Looping Structure- while, do . . while, for;

Programming Guidelines:

  • General Concepts; Modular approach;
  • Stylistic Guidelines: Clarity and simplicity of expressions and names; Comments, Indentation;
  • Running and debugging programs, Syntax Errors, Run-Time Errors, Logical Errors;
  • Problem Solving Methodology: Understanding of the problem, Identifying minimum number

of inputs required for output, breaking down problem into simple logical steps.

Unit 3: Relational Database Management System

Database Management System

  • Introduction to database concepts: Database, Relational database, Relation/Table, Attribute/Field, Tuple / Row;
  • Data Types: Text (CHAR, VARCHAR), Number (DECIMAL, INT/INTEGER), Date and Time
  • Keys: Candidate key, Primary key, Alternate key, Foreign key;
  • Examples of common Database Management System: MySQL, Ingres, Postgres, Oracle, DB2, MS SQL, Sybase etc.; Common Database management tools for mobile devices (eg: SQL Lite, Postgres SQL).

Introduction to MySQL
(ANSI SQL 99 standard commands)

  • Classification of SQL Commands:
  • Creating and using a database: CREATE DATABASE command to create a database, USE command to select a database.
  • Creating a table: CREATE TABLE command to create a table, DESC command to display a table structure, INSERT command for inserting new rows, inserting new rows with NULL values and values of all the studied data types.
  • Selection and Projection of a table.
  • Displaying table data: SELECT command for selecting all the columns, selecting specific column(s), use of arithmetic operators.
  • Defining and using column alias
  • Eliminating duplicate values from display using DISTINCT keyword
  • Limiting rows during selection (using WHERE clause)
    • Using Comparison operators – =, <, >, <=, >=, <>, BETWEEN, IN, LIKE(%,_);
    • Logical Operators –AND, OR, NOT and corresponding operator precedence
  • Working with NULL values.
  • ORDER BY clause: Sorting in Ascending/Descending order, sorting by column alias name, sorting on multiple columns;
  • Manipulating Data of a Table/Relation: UPDATE command to change existing data of a table,
  • DELETE command for removing row(s) from a table.
  • Restructuring a table: ALTER TABLE for adding new column(s) and deleting column (s) and modifying column Structure. DROP command to delete a database or a table.

Functions in MySQL:

  • String Functions: ASCII(), CHAR(), CONCAT(), INSTR(), LCASE(), UCASE(), LEFT(), LOWER(), LENGTH(), LTRIM(), MID(), RIGHT(), RTRIM(), SUBSTR(), TRIM(), UPPER().
  • Mathematical Functions: – POWER(), ROUND(), TRUNCATE().

Unit 4: IT Applications

  • e-Governance: Definition, benefits to citizens, e-Governance websites and their salient features and societal impacts; e-Governance challenges.
  • e-Business: Definition, benefits to customers and business, e-Business websites and their salient features and societal impacts; netbanking, mobile banking, e-Business challenges.
  • e-Learning: – Definition, benefits to students (learners), teachers (trainers) and school (Institution) management; MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) ; e-Learning websites and their salient features and societal impacts; e-Learning Challenges.

In each of the above domains, identify at least two real-life problems, list the input(s) required
for the expected output(s), and describe the problem solving approach. Conceptualise the design of an ICT based national mission.
Impact of ICT on society – social environmental and economic benefits, Infomania.
