  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Assembly to machine

2. Inter Process Communications- mechanisms that facilitate communication between processes or threads

3. Access to data at the same time; both denied

4. The process that captures actual changes to software code and end-user documentation and operations documentation and disaster recovery planning documentation and anything else that's affected by the change request.

5. Virtual table

6. A software development methodology that focuses on Defect prevention rather than defect removal. The goal is to write the code correctly the first time!

7. formal documents in place and pro-active

8. Knowledge base comprising modeled human experience.

9. Ensures seperation of duties by ensuring programmers do not have access to production code.

10. A template that defines the methods and variables to be included in a particular type of object

11. focused on continuous process improvement

12. An attack that invloves sending a user to a different webpage they did not click on. It can lead to DOS attacks.

17. Combines data from multiple databases;data is extracted and transferred to central store;OLAP

18. An application that consists of components on separate and networked systems.

19. A mechanism used to define and store and manipulate data. It contains data used by one or more applications as well as a programming and command interface used to create and manage and administer data.

20. spiral method; nested version of waterfall method; estimated costs and schedules are revised at the end of the assessment Decision to proceed/cancel project is revisited after each risk assessment

21. The process of starting an instance

22. Enterprise JavaBean

23. Style of programming that promotes discipline; allows introspection; and providing controlled flexibility; requires refined processes and modular development; each phase subject to review and approval; allows for security to be added in a formalized

24. This component enforces access controls on a system

25. A list of characteristics that can be created in the real world.

26. Component Object Model-microsoft framework for developing and supporting components allows other applications of components to access their features.

27. Channel allowing two cooperating processes to transfer info in a way it violated sec policy; either storage; one process writes; another process reads or timing one process relays info to another by modulating its use of sys resources

28. An object that gets some of its characteristics from a class.

29. A malicious program that spreads by attacking known weaknesses on computer systems.

30. Joint Application Development- management process that allows developers to work directly with users

31. This component enforces access controls on a system
