          Information Retrieval                             

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  This course is
          an   introduction   to   the   theory  and
          implementation    of    software   systems
          designed    to    search   through   large
          collections of text. Information retrieval
          (IR)  is  one  of  the oldest  branches of
          computer   science,   and  has  influenced
          nearly  every  aspect  of  computer usage:
          "search  and replace" in a word processor,
          querying  a card catalog, grep'ing through
          source  code,  filtering  the spam  out of
          email, searching the Web. This course will
          have  two  main  thrusts. The  first is to
          cover  the  fundamentals  of  IR:retrieval
          models,    search   algorithms,   and   IR
          evaluation.  The second is to give a taste
          of  the  implementation  issues  through a
          semester-long project. Also listed as CMSC
          691I.  Prerequisite:  CMSC 341,  CMSC 441,
          MATH 221 and STAT 355 recommended.

          Server Technologies                               

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  This course is
          an  in-depth  look at  several server-side
          Java  technologies, primarily Java Servlet
          and  Java Server Pages (JSP). The benefits
          of Java Servlets and JSP will be discussed
          and  the  two will be  compared to similar
          technologies  such as  Active Server Pages
          and PHP. Several Servlet/JSP projects will
          be   done  using  the  Apache  Tomcat  web
          server.   In   addition,  several  related
          technologies,  such as PHP,  XML, JDBC and

          Information Retrieval                             

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  This course is
          an   introduction   to   the   theory  and
          implementation    of    software   systems
          designed    to    search   through   large
          collections of text. Information retrieval
          (IR)  is  one  of the  largest branches of
          computer   science,   and  has  influenced
          nearly  every  aspect  of  computer usage:
          "search  and replace" in a word processor,
          querying  a card catalog, grep'ing through
          source  code,  filtering  the spam  out of
          email, searching the WEB. This course will
          have  two  main  thrusts. The  first is to
          cover  the  fundamentals  of  IR:retrieval
          models,    search   algorithms,   and   IR
          evaluation.  The second is to give a taste
          of  the  implementation  issues  through a
          semester-long project. Also listed as CMSC
          491I.

          Server Technologies                               

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  This course is
          an  in-depth  look at  several server-side
          Java technologies, primarily Java Servlets
          and  Java Server Pages (JSP). The benefits
          of  Java Servlets and JSP will be dicussed
          and  the  two will be  compared to similar
          technologies  such as  Active Server Pages
          and PHP. Several Servlet/JSP projects will
          be   done  using  the  Apache  Tomcat  web
          server.   In   addition,  several  related
          technologies,  such as PHP, XML, JDBC, and
          Javascript,  will be  covered. Also listed
          as CMSC 491J.
