Java 3: Java Programming Foundations
In this course, you will learn to build the programmer’s repertoire of fundamental Java application capabilities. You will achieve an understanding of the structure and purposes for many classes in the Java API. In-depth experience with user interfaces, event and exception handling, Java I/O, and the collection framework will provide you with a toolkit for implementing applications and understanding source code of others. Programs designed in the course using Java Threads, Client/Server Sockets, and Database Connectivity provide a solid basis for application building.
Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to:
- Develop code that is clean, reusable, flexible, and user-friendly.
- Design object-oriented software that utilizes fundamental programming constructs, multiple inheritance, abstraction, and packages.
- Implement interfaces using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture.
- Enhance Java flexibility with enumeration, casting, interface extension, generics, and the collection framework.
- Handle and map images.
- Deploy applets and applications using Eclipse and Java JAR files.
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 provide 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.
Prerequisites: Java 2: The Java Programming Language, or equivalent skills. This course is meant for the intermediate or advanced programmer.
