Object-oriented programming has been adopted widely because of its capability to reuse code. Most application development software provides class libraries and extensive support for complex data structures, including linked lists. Investigate one of these libraries, such as the Microsoft Foundation Class (www.microsoft.com) or the Java 2 Platform (http://www .java.com) application programming interface (API). What data structures are supported by the library? What types of data are recommended for use with each data structure object? Which classes contain which data structures, and what methods does the library provide?
Weekly Discussion Question:
DQ (P) - Discussion Question 1 – (PDQ directed at upcoming PA)
Prior to reading this DQ, please read the PA1 assignment and understand what the assignment is asking you to complete. Once you have an understanding of the PA1 assignment, please continue to the paragraph below to complete DQ1.
Using the Library Information Resource Network (LIRN), JSTOR, or any other electronic journal database, research one (1) peer-reviewed article that can be used to answer your upcoming PA1 assignment. Your discussion should summarize the article in such a way that it can justify any arguments you may present in your PA1 assignment and should be different from the abstract. In addition to your researched peer-reviewed article, you must include an example of the article researched as it is applied by industry (company, business entity, and so forth).
Please note: This article summary should not be the only article researched for your PA1 assignment. You may (and should) have several other articles researched in order to fully answer your PA1 assignment. The concept of this DQ is to allow students to be proactive in the research necessary to complete this assignment. You may use your article summary, partially or in its entirety in your PA1 assignment.
Important: Please ensure that you insert your reference for the article in correct APA format, as your reference in your discussion post. Depending on which electronic database you use, you should see a “Cite” selection for your article. In addition, there should be a variety of articles summarized and as such, students should have different articles summarized. Your summary MUST include ALL of the following in your DQ post (include every item in the bullet list below, or you will not receive full credit):
Clearly state what the article is about and its purpose
How the article and/or author(s) support your argument(s)
Most important aspects of the article
Any findings and conclusions
Approximately 250 to 350 words in length
Include the article “Abstract” in your posting (your summary should be original)
Include the industry example demonstrating the application of your researched article
“IMPORTANT” - Include the reference for the article in correct APA format
