Evaluation of Practical Examination
1. Problem Solving using Java
Student is required to solve programming problems based on all concepts covered in theory
throughout the year and maintain a record of these in the practical file.
Student will be given a problem to be solved using Java during final practical examination to be
conducted at the end of the academic session.
2. SQL Queries
Students will be trying out SQL queries using MySQL throughout the year alongwith course
coverage in theory.
Student will be asked to write 4 queries based on one or two tables during final practical
examination to be conducted at the end of the academic session
3. Practical Record File
A practical record file is required to be created during the entire academic session. It should be
duly signed by the concerned teacher on regular basis and is to be produced at the time of Final
Practical Examination for evaluation. It should include the following:
• At least 12 solutions of simple problems and 2 IT applications using IDE based Java
(refer to Appendix ‘A’ & ‘B’)
• At least 24 SQL queries based on one and/or two tables
• Solution of at least 2 simple problems incorporating Java Application & Database
4. Project File
Students in group of 2-3 are required to work collaboratively to develop a project using
Programming and Database skills learnt during the course. The project should be an application
in any one of the following domains: e-Governance, e-Business and e-Learning with GUI frontend
and corresponding database at the back-end.
5. Viva Voce
Students will be asked oral questions during practical Examination to be conducted at the end of
the course. The questions will be from the entire course covered in the academic session

Appendix ‘A’
Sample Guidelines for GUI Programming
1. Display a message using Label, TextBox, MessageDialog using simple GUI applications
2. Concatenate two text entries and display the result.
3. Perform a simple arithmetic operation (+,-,*,/) and display the result in MessageDialog or TextBox
4. Make simple decision making (if statement) solution and display relevant message using GUI
application (Example – Problems related to Eligibility for a given value of Age, “Profit” or “Loss”
messages for given values of Cost Price and Sale Price, Grade Display for given values of
Marks of students etc.)
5. Create a GUI application to perform both arithmetic and logical operation together (Example –
Total, Average and Grade calculation for given marks, Salary Calculation on different criteria)
6. Create a GUI application to perform an operation based on the criteria input by the user in a
CheckBox or a RadioButton.
(Example 1: Find the Discount of an item on the basis of Category of item [Electrical Appliance/
Electronic Gadget/Stationary specified using a Radio button] and its Cost [Below 1000/Above
1000/Equal to 1000 specified using a Radio button]).
(Example 2: Calculate the incentive of a Sales Person on the basis of his Sales Amount, Customer
Feedback, Count of Customer specified using CheckBox)
7. Create a GUI application to change the property of a swing element based on the selection
made by the user
(Example 1: To change the background or Foreground color of any of the Swing elements of the
form based on the color selected from a list)
(Example 2: To change the foreground and background color of a label based on the values
input/stored in a combo box)
8. Create a GUI application for repeatedly doing a task based on the user input.
(Example: To display the multiplication table of a number input by the user)
9. Store the data (Admission No., Name, Date of Birth, Class and Section) of 10 students in a
table (Table) and find total number of students in each class and section.
Sample Guidelines for Connectivity Problems
10. Create a GUI application that counts and displays the number of records present in a database
11. Create a simple GUI application that displays the records of a database table in a tabular format
(using jTable) on the GUI form.
12. Create a simple GUI application that displays the records of a database table in a tabular format
(using jTable) on the GUI form based on a criteria input by the user.
13. Create a simple GUI application to perform a calculation based on a value retrieved from database
table and a value entered by the user in a GUI application.
