Updated specification

The project specification has just been updated, adding information on what languages shall be used for the program, as well as some smaller items that were discussed with Steve Russ last week.

From now on, a live copy of the specification will be available here, and the original that was officially submitted on 11/10/07 will be kept here. Both versions are linked to under 'Project Resources' at the top of the sidebar on the left of this blog. 

By the way, on doing some more trawling around the web today, I found this: http://www.worshipsession.info/
It is a piece of software for displaying lyrics (and optionally chords) of songs, just like songpro (the most common tool in churches for this), but is operated by a foot pedal on stage by the lead worshipper! I am very impressed, and especially by the fact that the display is all done with javascript/HTML. I am sure I shall return to looking at this program as it covers some of what I hope my PSALM program will do. The intended features of PSALM may need to change if WorshipSession could be used for some things, as there is no point in just re-doing somebody else's work.

Project Specification

It's the first major deadline for my project, and so the project specification is complete. See the PDF file below.

Specification abstract:

This document specifies the details, such as the title, problems, methods and objectives, of James Williams’ project for module CS310. Having been assessed for feasibility, the components of the project are split between core and extended parts. Also included is a proposed timetable and a discussion of the required resources and any issues such as ethics involved in the project. This specification is subject to constant review.

Highlights:

• Investigation Aims:
   1. Investigate the extent of the use of IT in the Church and the attitudes towards it.
   2. Investigate how IT could have potential further use in the Church.

• Aims of the Software aid for leading music:
   1. Develop a new song organisation system to replace the songbook system.
   2. Enable easy key transposition
   3. Make a tool to recognise what key spontaneous singing may be in.
   4. Include a function to recommend songs for a setlist.

• Diagram of Key components & their relationships:
