Study Notes

What is Integrative Programming?

  • Integrative programming combines and coordinates separate elements to construct an interrelated whole.
  • It involves designing individual modules to function cooperatively as an entire system.
  • Integrative programming incorporates modules coded in different languages to achieve a unified task.

What is an Integrative System?

  • An integrated system, or systems integration, is the process of bringing together component sub-systems into one functional system.
  • It provides a system with coherence by making the parts or components work together.
  • System integration is essential to the development of large, complex engineered systems.

System Integration (SI)

  • SI is used for melding existing systems and new technologies to form more capable systems.
  • It requires the coordination of preexisting and coexisting system components with newly developed ones.
  • SI ensures that specific hardware/software components fit together smoothly in a stated configuration.

Programming Languages

  • A programming language is an artificial language designed to communicate instructions to a machine (computer).
  • It is used to create programs that control the behavior of a machine and/or express algorithms.
  • A programming language is defined by its syntax (combination of permitted symbols) and semantics (arrangement of symbols that have meaning).

C++ Program Structure

  • A simple C++ program that prints "Hello World" includes the following code:
    • #include
    • using namespace std;
    • int main() { cout << "Hello World"; }

PHP Tags

  • PHP supports two types of tags: short-open (SGML-style) and ASP-style tags.
  • Short-open tags look like <? ?> and require the --enable-short-tags configuration option or the short_open_tag setting in the php.ini file to be enabled.
  • ASP-style tags look like <% %> and require the configuration option in the php.ini file to be set.

PHP Properties

  • PHP is a case-sensitive language.
  • Braces {} are used to make blocks of statements, allowing multiple statements to be executed as a single statement.

Dynamic Websites

  • Dynamic websites provide functionalities that can be used to store, update, retrieve, and delete data in a database.
  • A form is a document that contains blank fields, which the user can fill with data or select from a pre-defined list.
  • The data entered in a form is typically stored in a database.

PHP Form Validation

  • An example of a PHP form validation tutorial includes fields for:
    • Name
    • E-mail
    • Specific Time
    • Class details
    • Gender (Female/Male)

Running a PHP File

  • To run a PHP file, it must be:
    • Named with a .php file extension
    • Saved in the htdocs folder inside the xampp folder in the local C drive
    • Called in a browser by inputting the URL localhost/.php

Test your knowledge on the basics of integrative programming and technologies, including the concept of combining separate elements to construct a whole system and integrating modules coded in different languages. Learn about integrative systems and their importance in technology.
