Projects

This course will assign programming projects in the Nachos instructional operating system. You will be working on the Java version.

The Linux machines located in EBU3B B230 or B250 are the recommended platform for your projects.


Project 0: Nachos Install
Project 1: Nachos Threads
Project 2: Nachos Multiprogramming
Project 3: Nachos Virtual Memory

Groups

You will work in groups of at most four on each project. When your group has been formed, please email cs120s1@ieng6.ucsd.edu with a list of your names and logins. You can also think of a fun group name if you want.

Submitting

You will be submitting your projects (for 1, 2, 3) via source control (Subversion this quarter). More information here when we set it up. For project 0, you will be submitting KThread.java with the turnin command.

Grading

The Nachos project portion is worth 30% of your class grade as stated in class. For project phases 1, 2, 3, we will be requiring an informal design document ~7 days before the project is due. (This is experimental, if it turns out you all hate it, we will get rid of this requirement.) The intent of this is to have you think about the project ahead of time, so you're not designing and coding at the last minute. In particular, describe the algorithms and data structures you plan to use, and how you plan to use them. You may also include pseudocode if you want.

The 30% is thus broken down in the following way:

  Design Document Implementation Correctness
Project 0 0% 1.5%
Project 1 1% 8.5%
Project 2 1% 8.5%
Project 3 0% 9.5%

Documentation

There are some resouces for using and learning the Nachos system, but most of them are for the C++ version, and not too helpful. Below are links more specific to the Java version or general links you may find helpful.
