During this course the student gets introduced to technologies used in service orented architectures and cloud computing. The course follows a practical hands-on approach.

Because several different technologies are used in cloud computing, the course will consist of several practical assignments. Possible topics include :

  • SOAP/WSDL and RESTfull web services servers and clients (Paas, SaaS)
  • Programming languages used for creating web services
  • Using social network data
  • Virtual machine management/administration (Iaas; Amazon EC2, open-stack, ...)
  • Computation in the cloud (Map-reduce, ...) 
  • Data in the cloud (NoSQL databases, scalability, redundancy, ...)
  • etc ...

Types of cloud deployement models will be covered only shortly. The models of cloud deployment are more of a business aspect of cloud computing and are hence not at the core of this course. A more business oriented course, which is suitable for less technical students interested in cloud computing is TJTSS70 Cloud Computing.


Students who attend this course can at also register for TIES532 which is a follow-up course during which students can work individually on a more advanced assignment related to SOA and Cloud computing


Good knowledge of at least one modern (object-oriented) programming language (e.g. Java, C#, C++, etc.). Experience with scripting languages is an asset.  During the demos, we will be working mostly with Java but also other programming languages like Javascript, Ruby and Bash will be used for certain exercises. You are not expected to know all these languages before this course. We will also work with XML and related technologies, therefore basic knowledge of XML technologies is required (study from http://www.w3schools.com/xml/ if you do not have experience with XML).

Modes of study:

The course consists mainly of practical sessions and sessions during which students will present their solutions.

Completion mode:

There is no exam, and the grading is pass/fail. 

The ECTS credit allocation scheme is as following:

  • The student may receive 5 credits for work on the basic tasks given every week.

TIES532 is a follow up course during which students can work individually on a more advanced assignment related to SOA and Cloud computing

Course workload:

The workload is depending on the experience of the student in programming and self-study . Students with a background in J2EE or related technologies will have significantly less work.

There will be 3 contact sessions per week of two hours each. Two of these are in a computer class where the students will work on assignments. The other session will be filled with students presenting their work and general feedback.

The following table gives an estimation of the workload:
