1. Individual work
All work is individual. You must write every line of code yourself except for code copied from study module 
sample code, lecture sample code, tutor demos or lab code.
You MUST NOT let another student see your solution code, and you MUST NOT look at another student’s 
solution code. Sharing your code on public forums such as the discussion board, or Internet forums such as 
stackoverflow.com is not permitted. More information about Academic Misconduct can be found at: 
http://www.gsu.uts.edu.au/rules/student/section-16.html

2. Skeleton code
As a starting point for this assignment, you must use the skeleton code provided on PLATE 
(https://plate.it.uts.edu.au/) under Assessments-> Assignment 2. A plain version is available to import directly 
into NetBeans, which includes the all the structures required.
The skeleton code contains a file called progress.txt which you must fill in and submit with your project to PLATE 
as you progress on the assignment (read Section 6 of this document NOW!!!).
3. Expected workload
The time to do the assignment to a distinction level (i.e. a mark between 75% to 84%) has been estimated at 15
hours for a student of average ability who has completed all the tutorial and lab exercises.
4. Specification
Library System
As Australia’s newest university, UTS is reflecting the technology-focussed outlook 
with an exciting new Graphical User Interface (or “GUI”) to go with the library’s new 
system. Let’s put those fancy new mice to work!
The specification is presented in several parts. In this document is given a series of screen shots and textual 
descriptions for visual reference. A demonstration is also presented in the video found on PLATE at Assessments- > Assignment 2. This demonstration video is considered part of the specification and contains important details 
about the dynamic function of the assignment.
The screens presented below are given in no particular order, other than vague logical grouping, and in particular 
the order should not be construed as an indication of difficulty or recommended order of implementation.
Main Menu (10)
The main menu is opened when the application launches. It has buttons to
access the catalogue, view patron records, view patron’s favourites and the 
administration menu. It also has an exit button which shuts the entire 
application down. The main menu has a header section with the UTS logo and 
the title “Library System”.

25.09.2020
Administration Menu (5%)
The administration menu is launched from the main menu. It has buttons to add 
and remove patrons, and add and remove books. The close button closes the 
administration menu window. The administration menu includes the same 
header as the main menu (and catalogue menu).
Add Patron and Add Book to Catalogue (10%)
These two windows add a patron to the system, and a 
book to the catalogue respectively. Each has text fields 
for data entry, each with an appropriate label. The 
Patron ID field expects an integer, all others expect 
strings. The Add buttons handle the addition of the 
patron/book to the appropriate component of the 
model. The also both have areas to give feedback to 
the user if the action was successful or not.
Remove Patron and Remove Book from Catalogue (10%)
These two windows handle the removal of Patrons and Books. 
Remove Patron shows a list of the current Patrons, remove Book 
shows a list of the books available to be removed (which may not 
be all the books in the library). Each remove button removes the 
currently selected item in its window. The close buttons close 
their windows.
Patron Record and Patron Favourites (10%)
These two windows display the patron record and the patron’s 
favourite books. The both include display areas for the related 
lists, suitably labelled. They both also include a text field for the 
entry of a patron ID, along with a label and a button to update the 
lists based on the entered patron ID. There is an area showing 
feedback text indicating which patron is selected.

25.09.2020
Catalogue Menu (5%)
The catalogue menu presents the options for interacting with the catalogue. 
It includes the menu header (as with the main menu and the administration 
menu).
Show All Books and Show Available Books (10%)
The complete catalogue (accessed from 
Show All Books) and the available books 
menu show the lists of all the books, and the 
books available for someone (but not 
necessarily everyone) to borrow, 
respectively.
4
25.09.2020
Browse By Genre and Browse By Author (10%)
These two windows display labelled lists of 
authors/genres from which the selected item is 
used to display the suitably filtered list of books in 
the second list display area.
Borrow (10%)
The borrow window allows the entry of a patron ID, which when 
the select patron button is clicked, shows a list of books that are 
available for that patron to borrow. This list should exclude books 
that are not on the shelf, or whose first hold is a different patron. 
Note that Select Patron button is disabled if there is no text in 
the Patron ID field, and the Borrow button is disabled if no book 
is selected.
Return (10%)
The return window operates similarly to the borrow window, but 
shows the books that the patron has currently borrowed (and are 
thus available to return). The buttons in this window have similar 
restrictions to the borrow window (text in Patron ID field, book 
selected).
Place Hold (10%)
The place hold window also operates similarly to the borrow and
return windows, except the books available to be placed on hold 
includes all books. The window also additional includes an area 
for text feedback as to whether a hold was place, or if a hold 
already exists.

5. Requirements
Layout
To get full marks, you should layout your windows to look as close as possible to the screenshots. This means that 
you should try to duplicate the spacing between and around nodes that is shown in the screenshots, and the 
width and height of the nodes, and the alignment of the nodes. In the model solution, all hgap, vgap and spacing 
properties for GridPanes, HBoxes and VBoxes were set to 10 or 20.
Style
A CSS file is included in the skeleton code which provides all the styles used in the assignment.
Code
Your solution must satisfy the following code requirements:
● Your solution must follow the MVC architecture.
● Your solution must keep the package structure and class names that were provided in the skeletoncode.
● The models must notify the views of changes by correctly applying the JavaFX property patterns and 
observable lists. Model data that can change must be observable. Model data that never changes need 
not be observable.
● The views must be laid out in FXML.
6. Submission to PLATE
READ THIS ENTIRE SECTION CAREFULLY
Included in the skeleton code is a file called progress.txt which you must fill out as you progress through the 
assignment. This file will contain lines such as these:
[?] The Main menu window is at least partially done. 
[?] The Main menu window is done.
[?] The Catalogue menu window is at least partially done.
...etc…
As you make progress on your assignment, you must edit this file by changing each [?] into a [y] and then submit 
your progress to PLATE. Don’t forget to save this file before submitting. For example, after you get the main menu 
window partially done (even if you have only done a small amount), you edit this file as follows:
[y] The Main menu window is at least partially done. 
[?] The Main menu window is done.
[?] The Catalogue menu window is at least partially done.
...etc…
6
25.09.2020
Then you submit your project to PLATE so that there is a record of what your code looked like when you first 
started to make progress on your Main menu window. After you complete the Main window feature, you should 
again update this file as follows:
[y] The Main menu window is at least partially done.
[y] The Main menu window is done.
[?] The Catalogue menu window is at least partially done.
...etc…
Then you submit your project to PLATE again so that there is a record of what your code looked like when you 
completed this feature.
It is not always required that you complete a feature before moving onto the next feature. For example, your 
progress.txt file may read:
[y] The Main menu window is at least partially done. 
[?] The Main menu window is done.
[y] The Catalogue menu window is at least partially done.
...etc…
This would indicate that you partially completed the Main menu window, then moved on to the Catalogue menu 
window. This is allowed, as long as you have completed at least enough of the Main menu window that will allow 
you to correctly open the Catalogue menu window.
Important: If you don’t submit your progress on a particular feature, then your marks for that feature won’t 
count! That is, you are only marked for those features where you submit evidence of your progress. Be very 
careful to always submit your progress as soon as you make progress so that you don’t lose any marks 
unnecessarily.
You are required to submit your project (including the updated progress.txt file) to PLATE regularly. Serious 
penalties apply if you do not submit your progress in small increments.
Penalty for lack of progress evidence: You must submit your progress to PLATE in increments of no larger 
than 25 marks. The penalty for making a submission to PLATE that is N marks higher than your previous 
best mark, where N > 25 is N marks. Here is an example:
Submission #1: 5 marks (OK. This is 5 marks higher than the previous best of 0) 
Submission #2: 18 marks (OK. This is 13 higher than the previous best of 5) 
Submission #3: 15 marks (OK)
Submission #4: 42 marks (“Just” OK. This is 24 higher than the previous best of 18) 
Submission #5: 85 marks ( Penalty of 43 . This jump is 43 marks higher than 42) 
7
25.09.2020
To avoid a penalty, submit your progress in smaller increments. That is, you should not introduce more than 25 
new [y] answers in your progress.txt file in a single submission. 
Your solution is to be submitted to PLATE at https://plate.it.uts.edu.au/ to Applications Programming / 
Assessments / Assignment 2. Your assignment should be submitted as a JAR file that includes:
● All Java source files required to compile your assignment.
● All FXML, CSS and image files required to run your assignment.
● The progress.txt file at the top level of your project directory structure.
Based on your submitted progress.txt file, PLATE will calculate a mark. This mark should NOT be considered in any 
way as your final mark. Rather, it should be considered as a “potential” mark. The final mark will be finalized by the 
subject coordinator after the deadline.
There is no scheduled late submission period as there is limited time left for peer marking of assignment2 . Any
extension CANNOT be given after the due date.
You may also apply for special consideration for reasons including unexpected health, family or work problems.
More information about how to apply for special consideration can be found at 
http://www.sau.uts.edu.au/assessment/consideration.html. 
7. Peer marking and demonstration
In your scheduled week 12 lab class you must demonstrate your assignment to your tutor and be prepared 
explain parts of your code to your tutor if requested. If you are unable to explain your code, it may impact your 
marks. Your presence is required at this class. Any student who is not present without being granted prior 
permission may have up to 50% of their marks for this assignment deducted.
In addition to demonstrating your assignment, you will also be assigned two other students to peer mark, and 
two other students will be assigned to peer mark you. The purpose of this peer marking is to mark the 
functionality of your application which cannot be tested by PLATE. Your marks for functionality will be based on 
these peer marks after they are moderated by the subject coordinator. Aside from marks for the functionality,
the subject coordinator will also mark your code to ensure that all code requirements have been met. Your final
mark will be a combination of marks for functionality and marks for code (See “Marking scheme”). Note that you 
can only be marked for features that can be demonstrated to work.

9. Online support
The Assignment 2 discussion board has been set up in ED https://edstem.org/courses/4521/discussion/ so that 
students can ask questions, and other students can reply. A tutor may post a reply only if they think the student 
response was wrong, or in the case of correcting a mistake in the assignment specification.
25.09.2020
You must not post Java code to the discussion board. The board is there to help you, not to provide the solution.
Posting your code is academic misconduct and will reported. Each time this rule is violated, I will delete the code 
and post a comment of the form: “Strike 1: Posting code”. After 3 strikes, the discussion board will be deleted 
because it did not work.
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and their answers are posted on PLATE alongside the assignment 
documentation. If you have a question, check the FAQ first, it may already be answered there. You should read 
the FAQ at least once before you hand in your solution, but to be safe check it every couple of days. Anything 
posted on the FAQ is considered to be part of the assignment specification. The FAQ will be frozen (no new 
entries) at the end of week 11; no questions will be answered after it is frozen.
If anything about the specification is unclear or inconsistent, contact the subject coordinator and Angela will try 
to make it clearer by replying to you directly and posting the common questions and answers to the FAQ. This 
is similar to working on the job, where you ask your client if you are unsure what has to be done, but then you 
write all the code to do the task. Email huan.huo@uts.edu.au to ask for any clarifications or corrections to the 
assignment.
