Using the readings from weeks 1 and 2 as a baseline, develop a graphical user interface that allows a
user to login to a system. The login screen shou
ld contain fields for entering a username and password
and buttons to submit the information for authentication and a button to clear or reset the fields.
You can hard
code the password authentication for now
as the purpose of this exercise is Unit testin
The system should log all attempts into a Log.txt file. The log should include the username, the date, the
time and if the login was successful or not.
Create multiple Unit tests (use Junit if selecting Java, and Visual Studio Unit Test if using C++ or
should design and implement a comprehensive set of Unit tests
a minimum of 4 that include testing of
the login form with successful/unsuccessful logging attempts and the logging functionality to the Log.txt
. You should run your unit tests a
show the results for each test in your submission.
You should submit your source files, example log files and a word (or PDF) document providing a
detailed explanation of each of unit tests along with screen captures showing the
results of your unit
tests. Screen captures are clearly labeled indicating exactly what the screen capture represents.
You should zip your source files to allow submission in one compressed source file as opposed to
multiple. Submit your source code and d
ocument no later than the due date.
Your document should be well
organized, include page numbers and contain minimal spelling or
