Unit-I : OBJECT ORIENTED PROGRAMMING IN C++

REVIEW: C++ covered in HS First Year classes

Object Oriented Programming: Concept of Object Oriented Programming - Data hiding, Data encapsulation, Class and Object, Abstract class and Concrete class, Polymorphism (Implementation of polymorphism using Function overloading as an example in C++); Inheritance, Advantages of Object Oriented Programming over earlier programming methodologies.

Implementation of Object Oriented Programming concepts in C++: Definition of a class, Member of a class - Data Members and Member Functions (methods), Using Private and Public visibility modes, default visibility mode (private); Member function definition: inside class definition and outside class definition using scope resolution operator (::); Declaration of objects as instances of a class; accessing members from object (s), Objects as function arguments - pass by value and pass by reference.

Constructor and Destructor: Constructor: special characteristics, declaration and definition of a constructor, default constructor, overloaded constructors, copy constructor, constructor with default arguments.

Destructor: Special Characteristics, declaration and definition of destructor;

Inheritance (Extending Classes) : Concept of Inheritances, Base Class, Derived classes, protected visibility mode; Single level inheritance, Multilevel inheritance and Multiple inheritance, Privately derived, publicly derived and Protectedly derived class, accessibility of members from objects and within derived class (es).

Data File Handling: Need for a data file, Types of data files - Text file and Binary file.

Text File: Basic file operations on text file: Creating/Writing text into file, Reading and Manipulation of text from an already existing text file (accessing sequentially).

Binary File: Creation of file, Writing data into file, Searching for required data from file, Appending data to a file, Insertion of data in sorted file, Deletion of data from file, Modification of data in a file;

Implementation of above mentioned data file handling in C++.

Header file: fstream.h; ifstream, ofstream, fstream classes.

Opening a text file in in, out, and app modes.

Using cascading operators (>><<) for writing text to the file and reading text from the file; open(), get(), put(), getline() and close() functions; Detecting end-of-file (with or without using eof() function).

Opening a binary file using in, out, and app modes.

open(), read(), write() and close() functions; Detecting end-of-file (with or without using eof() function); tellg(), tellp(), seekg(), seekp() functions

Pointers: Introduction to Pointer, Declaration and Initialization of Pointer; Dynamic memory allocation/deallocation operators: new, delete; Pointers and Arrays: Array of Pointers, Pointer to an array (1 dimensional array), Function returning a pointer, Reference variables and use of alias; Function call by reference. Pointer to structure: De-reference/Deference operator: *, ->; self referencial structure.

Unit-II : DATA STRUCTURES

Introduction to data structure, primitive and non-primitive data structure, linear and non-linear structure, static and dynamic data structure.

Arrays: One and two Dimensional arrays: Sequential allocation and address calculation.

One dimensional array: Traversal, Searching (Linear, Binary Search), Insertion of an element in an array, deletion of an element from an array, Sorting (Insertion, Selection).

Two-dimensional arrays: Traversal Finding sum/difference of two NxM arrays containing numeric values, Interchanging Row and Column elements in a two dimensional array.

Stack (Array and Linked implementation of Stack): Introduction to stack (LIFO_Last in First Out Operations) Operations on Stack (PUSH and POP) and its Implementation in C++, Converting expressions from INFIX to POSTFIX notation and evaluation of Postfix expression.

Queue: (Circular Array and Linked Implementation): Introduction to Queue (FIFO - First in First out operations) Operations on Queue (Insert and Delete and its Implementation in C++

Unit-III : DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND SQL

Data base Concepts: Introduction to data base concepts and its need.

Relational data model: Concept of domain, tuple, relation, key, primary key, alternate key, candidate key.

Relational algebra: Selection, Projection, Union and Cartesian product.

Structured Query Language:

General Concepts: Advantages of using SQL, Data Definition Language and Data Manipulation Language.

Data Types: NUMBER/DECIMAL, CHARACTER/VARCHAR/VARCHAR2, DATE

SQL COMMANDS: CREATE TABLE, DROP TABLE, ALTER TABLE, UPDATE ….SET…., INSERT, DELETE; SELECT, DISTINCT, FROM, WHERE, IN, BETWEEN, GROUPBY, HAVING, ORDERBY; SQL functions: SUM, AVG, COUNT, MAX AND MIN.

Obtaining results (SELECT query) from 2 tables using equi-join, Cartesian product and Union

Unit-IV : BOOLEAN ALGEBRA

Role of Logical Operations in Computing.

Binary-valued Quantities, Boolean Variable, Boolean Constant and Boolean Operators: AND, OR, NOT.

Truth Tables; Closure Property, Commutative Law, Associative Law, Identity law, Inverse Law, Principle of Duality, Idem potent Law, Distributive Law, Absorption Law, Involution Law, DeMorgan's Law and their applications.
