Modèles de Données et Systèmes d'Information :

Lectures accompanied of course material will be given to students. Tutorials are associated to lectures during which the students will practice the different concepts seen in class. A case study will be introduced and studied. Finally, the students will realize their project. At the end, students will provide a project report.

- to enable XSL transformation of XML data into HTML

- to implement queries the database to support the XQuery language and verify their correction with expected results;



Moreover, the student will be able to produce a analysis study of a real information system in order to evaluate its qualities based on the ITIL best practices.


Needed prerequisite
