A Online Judge/Assignment Grading System for IDE4EDU


  • Project Title: Online Judge/Assignment Grading System for IDE4EDU
  • Mentor: Wayne Beaton
  • Student: Souvik Roy


The primary motive of IDE4EDU is streamlining the existing Eclipse IDE, to make it easier for the first time users and students to understand. Students in colleges primarily use eclipse to do assignments. This project will add an "Assignment Workflow Mechanism" to the JavaLite environment. Students can download assignments uploaded by their professors, finish it and send it back to their professors for grading. All these are done from the Eclipse workspace itself, the professor and students being connected to a network. This is the basic goal of the project. Also other improvements will be added to this basic mechanism. There already has been a lot of talk regarding a separate reference tab, reported under the Bug #250659. The Bug fix would enable an easy access to the details of the assignment right from the workspace. This environment would be simply perfect for students in University, in any year. Scope for other improvements are listed in the later sections.
