Your task is to develop the application that runs continuously as a
background process and periodically retrieves stock information,
parses the received responses, and stores the extracted parameters
into a local relational database.
You may wish to use MySQL or check PostgreSQL, claimed to be the
worlds most advanced open source database. Check also PostgreSQL at
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Check the source code of the projects from Spring 2008, available here.
You are welcome to reuse the example source code, but you should document and describe it properly as part of your project report. Your documentation should improve upon the documentation provided by the previous years report.
Each group should email a single ZIP file (ZIP, not .RAR)) containing the following:
The report should include the system design diagrams (preferably in
UML, but not required). Provide
narrative describing each diagram. As part of the report, include
detailed breakdown of individual contributions of each team member to
the project. Each student should quantify, as a percentage, his or her
own contribution to each component of this assignment. If all team
members feel that their contributions were about equal, just write
down "Equal contributions."
This report will be part of your final project report, so keep all documentation for later use.
Submission deadline: no later than 5:00 PM on the due date given here.
( Note: Keep all the source code and documentation because you will need it for future deliverables on your group project. )
