2. Pre-Requisites

The Web Engineering and Services course requires knowledge related to the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and the Unified Modeling Language (UML). This knowledge can be acquired during the Software Engineering I course that is part of the Module I of the Computing Science degree curricula.

Although not required, any knowledge aquired during the Software Design and the Software Engineering Processes courses that are part of the Software Engineering specialization will be very welcome. Additionally, although not strictly necessary, students should have some prior knowledge of the HTML, CSS and JSON markup languages, as well as the JavaScript programming language. These skills can be acquired during the Web System Technologies course that is part of the Information Technology specialization.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The Web is one of the most popular communication and content distribution platform in the world, enabling users and applications the exchange of information through the Internet. Web systems can be defined as a set of distributed web applications supported by a client-server architecture, developed with standard Web languages and technologies such as HTML, XML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.

Modern web systems cover both Business-to-Client (B2C) as well as Business-to-Business (B2B) applications. While most B2C applications are usually implemented as graphical user interfaces rendered in web browsers using languages such as HTML, CSS and JS, B2B applications are usually implemented as web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) acting as Web services using languages such as XML and JSON. Let's take as an example the case of a web system that provides support to an online shop. While the web application that allows clients to buy products is an example of a B2C web application, the web application that automatically requests products from the shopping provider when the product stock is under a threshold value is an example of a B2B web application.

From the B2C applications’ perspective, web services enable applications to move the web page rendering from the server side to the client side of the application, improving the web application performance and flexibility. From the B2B applications’ perspective, web services enable users to share software applications and even platforms and infrastructures.

As we have mentioned, web services serve as a communication platform requiring protocols to exchange information. In order work properly and improve software reuse and maintenance, these protocols follow standards that are the basis of Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) and cloud computing.

Due to the evolution of web technologies and services during the last decade, the discipline of Web Engineering has adapted and optimized development processes and methodologies to cope with the particularities of web applications. This course focuses on the development of web systems using web technologies and services following well-established Web Engineering processes and methodologies.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Laboratory sessions 45.00% 45.00% [LAB] Practice deliverables.

The practical project of the course is divided into 5 deliverables with different weights. The mark of this item will be calculated using a weighted mean of the deliverables. The minimum mark for this item is 3,5 points out of 10.
Theoretical papers assessment 15.00% 15.00% [INF] Course project report.
Oral presentations assessment 10.00% 10.00% [PRES] Oral presentation of the course project.
Progress Tests 30.00% 30.00% [ESC] Multiple-choice tests.

After each lecture, the student will have to complete a multiple-choice questionnaire. The mark of this item will be calculated using an arithmetic mean of all the marks obtained in these questionnaires. Non-answered questionnaires will have the mark of 0 points. The minimum mark for this item is 3,5 points out of 10. In the case that the student does not obtain a mark greater than or equal to the minimum mark, the student will be able to take a theoretical exam at the end of the semester. The minimum mark for this exam is 3,5 points out of 10.
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The evaluation is divided into 4 parts, namely [ESC], [LAB], [INF] and [PRES], as shown in the table above. The [ESC] and [LAB] items are mandatory and have the minimum marks specified in the table. If the mark obtained in any of these two parts is not greater than or equal to the corresponding minimum mark, the maximum mark of the call will be no greater than 4,5 points out of 10.

    By default, the student will be assessed under the continuous assessment criteria. Should the student want to switch to the non-continuous assessment criteria, the student must fill the form in https://www.esiiab.uclm.es/alumnos/evaluacion.php before the end of the teaching period as long as no more than 50% of the assessable items have been taken.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The evaluation is divided into the same parts, weights and minimum marks as in the continuous assessment criteria. Nonetheless, the evaluation will change in the following aspects.

    [ESC] Theory exam. The student will take a theoretical exam comprising all the contents of the course.
    [LAB] Practical project of the course. The student will submit the practical project of the course in its entirety along with a comprehensive report. The student will also have to take a face-to-face interview about the project.

    The [INF] and [PRES] parts remain the same, but their submission dates may be different from the continuous assessment method.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The evaluation criteria are the same as in the non-continuous assessment method of the ordinary call.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The evaluation criteria are the same as in the non-continuous assessment method of the ordinary call and the extraordinary call.
