Project Description

A message board for scientist discussion

A computer scientist works on di erent research areas. When some chal-

lenging problem is solved the scientist write a formal report (a paper) where

all ndings are carefully described. The paper can be submitted to a con-

ference where a committee of experts reviews and criticises its technical

content. High quality papers are selected and scientists are invited to meet

and give a presentation of their ndings. A conference is great opportu-

nity where a scientist can present his paper to other scientists and receive

feedback from them.

You are asked by the conference organiser to build a message board

system. The system should allow a scientist to open a discussion about his

research topic. Each research topic contains a set of messages posted by

the scientists.

In the following the main functionality of the system are described:

each scientist can create exactly one research topic

each scientist can see all research topics created by other scientists;

each scientist can read all messages posted on a research topic;

each scientist can post a new message

Each message will be posted together with his writer and the date.

In the following there is an example of a research topic and some mes-

The student should select an appropriate architectural style in order to

design the message board system. Once the architectural style is selected

the student should provide a component based diagram. (25% of the total


The student should describe the protocol used to implement the message

board system. More speci cally s/he should describe all messages exchanged

among components and all rules of interaction (25% of the total marks).

1 Implementation

The student should provide the system architecture (5% of total marks)

and the reason for the selected architecture. S/he should also provide a java

implementation of the message board (45% of the total marks)

Note: If we have 5 scientists we can have a maximum amount of 5

research topic (one for each scientist).
