Midterm 2 Review - Fall 2002
This second midterm in the Fall 2002 CS2340 class will include 4-5 questions, with some like the ones below and others drawn from the first Midterm Review page (Midterm Review - Fall 2002). See especially the coding and design questions from that set.
I won't post answers, but I will correct any mistakes I notice. If you don't post, I won't post.
You're welcome to post answers, questions about the answers, critiques or questions about answers that are already posted, etc.
Testing Object-Oriented Programs
(a) How is testing O-O programs just like testing other programs?
(b) What features of O-O programs make testing different? How do these features make testing easier and/or harder?

The SUnit testing framework
a. What is an object-oriented framework?
b. Why is unit testing of O-O programs so important that someone built a testing framework explicitly to support this task?
c. Explain how SUnit works as a framework to provide testing capabilities.

a. What are three ways to pick between user interface design alternatives?
b. Why is using a UI design process the best of the alternatives?
c. What are the three steps in the UI design process defined in Chapter 6?

a. Explain how a recursive descent parser works.
b. Write Squeak code to implement a recursive descent parsing mechanism or these two productions:
Expression := Factor + Expression
Expression := Factor
Your parser should write a trace of its actions to Transcript.
c. The set of tokens recognized by a scanner is typically defined formally using finite state automata. The fintokens: message understood by instances of String in Squeak provides a "quick and dirty" way to extract a collection of tokens from a string. What is the fundamental limitation of findtokens: that makes it unsuitable as a general way to implement a scanner?
