Java Programming Fundamentals
This 5 day instructor-led course provides practice and understanding of Java programming. At the end of the course the student will be versed in Java well enough to begin developing or maintaining most simple Java systems. The student will be able to discern good programming practices from bad, correct syntax errors, detect and correct logic errors, create object-oriented code structures, manipulate files and databases, and know where to find answers for programming problems. Ultimately the goal of Java programing fundamentals is to give students enough of an understanding of Java so that they can become productive junior Java developers.
Java programming fundamentals will cover many of the Java keywords and their application as well as current industry coding idioms. The course goes well beyond simple programming by practicing object-oriented coding and SOLID programming principles.
The course is structured by combining short lectures with exercises. The exercises are more than simply following a pre-determined script but involve writing code from scratch, critiquing code, working in teams, modifying moderately complex systems, and exploring various code support websites.
- Create and explain project structure in Eclipse
- Work with classes, methods, statements, and class attributes
- Correct syntax and logic errors using the debugging tools in Eclipse
- Work with Java primitive datatypes and Java data classes
- Apply various levels of visibility to classes, subclasses, packages, and instances
- Code three types of loops, various conditional statements, use case statements
- Work with Java exceptions
- Use interfaces and polymorphism to create decoupled objects
- Apply basic design patterns to create well structured code
- Read and write to a file
- Use simple JDBC to manipulate a database
• Introduction to Java programming and Eclipse environment
• Classes and Methods
• Debugging and Eclipse shortcuts
• Java language structure and keywords
• Java language syntax and grammar
• Enums and Java structures
• SOLID programming
• File handling
• JDBC Database
Students taking this course must be able to operate a PC and have a basic understanding of such programming concepts as simple variables, sequence of code statements, looping, decisions (e.g. if statement), directory navigation, and files. Object oriented programming experience is not required for this course nor is web development.
Programmers who need to design and develop Java applets and applications.
