Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

Phases in Software Development

  1. Definition and Analysis of System Requirements
    1. Clarity of the Specifications
    2. Specifications are obtained for
      1. Required processing of data
      2. Necessary functions & tasks and their expected performance
      3. Expected system behavior
      4. Design constraints
      5. Life cycle of the product
  2. Development
    1. Software design, coding and testing are the main activities in the development process.
  3. Support
    1. Software should need little support for software reengineering by changing environment

Models for process Life Cycle

  1. Linear Sequential Life cycle model
    1. Model/ Analyze
    2. Design of data structures, software architecture, Interfaces and Algorithms
    3. Testing the internal logic and external functions
  2. Rapid Development Model (RAD)
    1. Each software component of Linear Model developed by a team
    2. Stage 1 – Business modeling
    3. Stage 2 – Characteristics and attributes of sets of Data Structures and objects, data modeling, software architecture
    4. Stage 3 – Description of adding, deleting, modifying and retrieving data objects
    5. Stage 4 – Code creation
    6. Stage 5 – Testing stage
  3. Increment development model
    1. Delivering the software incrementally
    2. Stage 1 – Same as Linear Model Analyzing, designing, coding and testing
    3. Stage 2 – When 1st effort is at design, the 2nd effort starts analyzing
    4. Stage 3 – When 1st effort is at coding, the 2nd effort starts designing, the 3rd effort starts analyzing.
    5. Stage 4 - When 1st effort is at testing, the 2nd effort starts coding, the 3rd effort at designing and the 4th effort starts analyzing.
  4. Concurrent model
    1. Under development
    2. Awaiting change
    3. Under revision
    4. Done
  5. Component based model
    1. Identification of software components
    2. Selection of classes from software components library
    3. Sort available components
    4. Reengineer components and create unavailable components
    5. Construct software from the components and test them
    6. Iteratively construct till final validation
  6. Fourth Generation tool base development (4GL) model
    1. Automatic report generation for high level graphics, data base queries
    2. Automated HTML code generation when creating a website
  7. Object oriented development model
    1. Currently software development process combine object orientation and fourth generation tools

Software Analysis

  • Requirement Analysis
  • Any problem can be modeled as
    • Information domain
    • Functional domain
    • Behavioral domain
  • Prototype development and prototype specification often helps
  • Many times, it may not be possible to completely specify a problem

Software Design

  • Architectural design
  • Data design
  • Interface design
  • Component design

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only. The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- New set of files to be created Create a new directory newcall/ inside the path “ /usr/src/linux- ” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux- folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar ) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
