3. Research Question and Objectives Our main objective is to design a web-based visual interactive software that can provide us a graphical interface for computer programming. Where basic general purpose programming facilities will be available like creation of modules, arrays and object orientation. Where we can achieve multitasking using threads and exception handling to catch exceptions. Interactive user I/O facilities and debugging proficiency to resolve our bugs and errors.
Goals of the Lab This lab has many different overall goals that are meant to introduce us to the challenges and procedures of building a preliminary enterprise environment from the ground up. Each task has it’s own set of goals that expose us to important areas of system administration in this type of environment. The lab first introduces us to installation and configuration of an edge routing device meant to handle all internal network traffic between devices, and allow access out to an external network, in our case the Internet. The lab then introduces installation of an enterprise Linux distribution, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, which will be used as the main Linux based server in our enterprise environment. We are then introduced to installation of a Wiki
Providing an easy way for end-user to access the resources is very important. To achieve this we can use the Remote Desktop Web Access. The RD Web Access allows the users to access the RemoteApp and Remote Desktop from a browser or from the start menu of Windows
