Students Will Learn:

  • Using reflection and introspection to control the publishing and discovery of the properties, events, and methods of Java classes (java.lang.reflect package)
  • Writing type safe and reliable code with the enhanced capabilities of Java
  • Using the classes and interfaces that comprise the Collections Framework (java.util package)
  • Processing databases using JDBC (java.sql package)
  • Creating, controlling and synchronizing threads
  • Creating and using inner classes and nested classes
  • Using functional interfaces and lambda expressions
  • Describing and using the networking related classes ( package)
  • Creating client/server programs including a chat room application

Course Description: This intermediate level course is intended for programmers who already have a fundamental understanding of Java programming and some experience writing code. It provides additional insights and details regarding some of the more advanced and useful capabilities contained in the Java Programming Language and it's associated packages. Topics include reflection and JavaBeans, Java type safety enhancements, the Java Collections Framework, Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), multithreading, inner classes, lambda expressions and networking.

Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.

Course Prerequisites: Familiarity with and experience using Java. Completion of either the Learning to Program with Java, Java for COBOL Programmers, or Java Programming course, or equivalent Java programming experience.

Excellent training class. And even better, excellent instructor! The instructor did a great job covering the required material. He used real world examples to explain concepts and to hold my attention. He is very approachable and made the class enjoyable as well as educational.
