Java has rapidly become the language of choice for platform independent implementations. This course provides a general introduction to programming, data structures and object-oriented programming. The syntax and semantics of the Java™ language are addressed, as well as related topics which include object-oriented programming concepts, terminology, and notation. This class requires the Java 2 Platform Development Kit, Standard Edition.
Create, compile, and execute a basic Java program.
Define the feature of inheritance.
Explain the benefit of having basic programming knowledge.
Demonstrate how to create and use classes, methods, instance variables, and objects.
Execute control statements found in Java.
Formulate algorithms using the process of top down, stepwise refinement.
Implement the various types of operators in Java.
Apply commands to detect, indicate, and handle exceptions.
Methods, Classes, Objects
Explain the use of methods that have more than one parameter.
Use Math class and common Java API packages.
Employ a constructor to initialize an object.
Arrays and Exception Handling
Discuss the concept and use of arrays.
Create a GUI-based application.
Summarize the relationship between superclasses and subclasses.
Develop superclasses and subclasses that implement polymorphism.
Demonstrate how to declare, create, initialize, and manipulate arrays.
Discuss the use of GUIs.
Implement a GUI using Swing components to allow user interaction with a Java application.
Files and Streams
Use the file access and file processing methods to manage data.
