Peter Djukić (2009) The reengineering of radio drama management application. EngD thesis.
Radio Slovenia established a special system for storing the radio dramas in the sixties of last century. Due to the difficulties of using the system, an application for archiving the radio dramas was made. The thesis presents the characteristics of the application, particularly the renovation and upgrading, which provided adequate safety of data. Original application was developed in the programming language Microsoft Visual Basic 6 with Microsoft Access database. Application has enabled faster searching, better overview of plays and it enabled faster work in general. Because of then difficulties with safety and limiting access to data, we decided to upgrade the original application. For the upgrade, we have used the procedures of reengineering with which we have reviewed and analyzed existing solution, so we could determent the parts to be changed. The key problem was the provision of control over the texts and pictures of radio dramas, which we have achieved by placing them in the Oracle database. Furthermore, we reengineered the importation of picture files. We have also upgraded the application with the possibility of sending data through e-mail and ability to play radio dramas in MP3 format.
