Java Programming Course Overview

This Java Programming course focuses on the fundamentals of the Java language, object oriented development and the structure of Java applications. It covers the Java Platform up to version 8.

This hands-on course shows delegates how to develop Java systems that use various core API packages. They will develop programs that support multi-threading and networking. Java has always been associated with GUI development and this course allows delegates to develop graphical applications using JavaFX. They also learn how to access databases and deploy applications.

Skills Gained

The delegate will practise:

  • Programming Using the Java Language
  • Implementing Design Patterns
  • Handling Exception and Errors
  • Using I/O Streams & Files
  • Object Serialization
  • Formatting Output
  • Multi-threaded Development
  • Using Collections
  • Using Event Models
  • Developing with JavaFX Classes
  • Internet integration
  • Using JDBC
  • Building JAR files

Who will the Course Benefit?

This Java Programming course is aimed at anyone who needs to learn how to develop in Java.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course delegates should be able to:

  • Explain the Java architecture
  • List and describe the standard Java packages in various versions
  • Choose between various design strategies
  • Understand the benefits of design patterns
  • Create, build, and debug Java projects
  • Build and release Java applications
  • Store objects using Java's Collection framework
  • Write robust applications using Exception handling
  • Perform a variety of I/O using Stream and File classes
  • Format strings, dates and numbers
  • Use Java localisation features
  • Develop GUI systems using JavaFX classes
  • Raise and respond to events
  • Create Java programs with concurrent threads
  • Create Network aware applications
  • Access databases using JDBC

Examinations

This Java Programming helps delegates to prepare for either of the two following exam tracks:

The Java SE 8 Programmer II (1Z0-809) Exam which leads to the Java SE 8 Oracle Professional(OCP) certification.

The Java SE7 Programmer II exam (1ZO-804) which leads to the Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer certification (OCPJP).

These qualifications replace the Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP).

Before taking any exam, ensure you have the recommended experience. The Oracle Corporation website lists all exam requirements and these are updated regularly.

Exams are not included as part of the course.

Requirements

Delegates should have experience with another programming language or have attended the pre-requisite course.
