Java 1: Introduction to Java and the Eclipse Development Environment
In this course, you will learn the fundamental concepts and syntax of the Java programming language. Throughout this course, you will learn by building examples using the Ellipse IDE, which is supplied as a Learning Sandbox. Completion of this course will give you a basic understanding of Object-Oriented techniques in Java.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Build Java applications and applets in the Eclipse IDE.
- Create control structures, classes, objects, and methods in Java.
- Add interaction to programs using components and listeners.
- Apply the Java API to draw graphics.
- Demonstrate understanding of modularity, modifiers, permissions, scope, and inheritance.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing your own Java-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and provided needed experience. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts toward the Java Programming Certificate Series.
