Software Development

Software development is the development of a software product. It may be used to refer to the activity of computer programming. Computer programming is the process of writing and maintaining the source code. Software development includes research, new development, prototyping, modification or any other activities that results in software products.

The development of software can be used for a variety of purposes. The three most common purposes are to meet specific needs of a specific client/business, to meet a perceived need of some set of potential users, or for personal use.  Embedded software development is the development of embedded software such as used for controlling consumer products. It requires the development process to be integrated with the development of the controlled physical product.

There are several different approaches to software development. Some take a structured, engineering-based approach to developing business solutions; whereas others may take a more incremental approach. All methodologies share a combination of stages of software development which include: analyzing the problem, market research, gathering requirements for the proposed business solution, devising a plan or design for the software-based solution, implementation of the software, testing the software, deployment, and maintenance and bug fixing. These stages are known as the software development lifecycle.

Pseudocode is a high-level description of the operating principle of a computer program.

Abstraction in object oriented systems

Many people view the four foundational elements of object-orientation as abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. There is a certain purity in being minimal. Various language designers have emphasized these four elements differently. In some object-oriented languages these four have been minimized to three. Of

Agile Manifesto + Four Fundamental Principles

Unit testing is the driving technology behind a software design technique termed Test Driven Development (TDD), which, in turn, is a component of the agile school of software development. In February of 2001, 17 thought leaders in object-orientation and software development got together in Snowbird, Utah, to discuss fundamental

Csharp programming

Develop a C# console application that implements an int array. Use 2 'for' loops, the first to fill the array using the Random class to generate random integers using the next method of the Random class and a second for loop to iterate through the filled array and print the values entered into the array by the random number gene

Solving: JAVA Questions

- The linked list that follows represents a stack. After we push the player (5, Joe, Sonic) onto the stack, what are first and last items on the stack? (7,Ajay, NFL) -> (3, Sarah, Mario) -> (9, Jin, Golf) -> null head (7, Ajay, NFL0 and (9, Jin, Golf) (5, Joe, Sonic) and (9, Jin, Golf) (3, Sarah, Mario) and (5, Joe

JAVA Program Designing

JAVA Using recursion, write a program that takes a word as an input and outputs the number of times the letter a is found in that word.

Overall average display for c programming loops

The last printf statement is suppose to show the overall average miles per gallon. I am unsure about the for loop. I understand how to write the code for the number of gallons used and miles driven, but unsure of how to get the overall average to display. I know that it is total miles / total gallons, but writing the code is unc

Java Array Coding

True or False 11-Is is possible to declare and instantiate an ArrayList of a user-defined class type. True o

JAVA Exercise Questions

What is the index of the first element of an array? What is the output of this code sequence? int [ ] a = new int [6]; System.out.println( a[4] );

C# Application for calculating a hypotenuse

Develop a C# console application that computes the hypotenuse of a right triangle. The computation of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is based on the Pythagorean Theorem: c2 = a2 + b2 and the hypotenuse, c ("long side") of the triangle can be computed with the formula the hypotenuse is equal to the square root of the side a

What is the output of this code sequence?

1. What is the output of this code sequence? (The user successively enters 3, 5, and -1.) System.out.print( "Enter an int > " ); int i = scan.nextInt( ); while ( i !=-1 ) { System.out.println( "Hello" ); System.out.print( " Enter an int > " ); i = scan.nextint ( ); } 2. what are the values of i and product af

C programming with introductory statements

See attachment below. I can get the introductory statements to print, but the sum, difference, and product all produce a result of 0 and the quotient statement of: When 22 is divided by 16 you get 1 with a remainder of 1. Also, the two closing statements of "If you had 22 nickels and 16 pennies you would have $1.26" doesn't re

c programming tutorial

I have been working on this tutorial for awhile now. I will state what the output should look like. My program will do some computation with two numbers. The two numbers used by this program are 22 and 16. The Sum of 22 and 16 is 61 The Difference of 22 minus 16 is 11 The Product of 22 times 16 is 900 When 22 is divide
