Course Description

Overview: Students interested in learning more about the Java programming language should take this course to learn advanced programming techniques and concepts.
Prerequisites: To ensure your success, we recommend you first take the following Element K course or have equivalent knowledge:
  • Java 2: Programming Language

Delivery Method: Instructor-led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.

Hardware/Software Requirements:

You will need:

  • Networked Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Workstation (Service Pack 6).
  • Java™ 2 SDK, Standard Edition, v1.3 (or later).
  • Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC), v2.1 (or later).
Performance-Based Objectives
Lesson objectives help students become comfortable with the course, and also provide a means to evaluate learning. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • Use reflection to examine objects at runtime and properly compare objects for equality.
  • Handle errors in your program by writing exception handlers.
  • Create and manipulate arrays and collections.
  • Read and write files using the java.io package.
  • Serialize objects using object serialization.
  • Write multi-threaded programs and synchronize threads.
  • Access data from relational databases using JDBC. Perform basic network communication using sockets.
