Workshop Description/Agenda

This hands on course introduces experienced programmers to Java technology and Java programming techniques. The Java platform provides an object-oriented, portable and robust framework for application development. Included are core language concepts including fundamental data types, flow control, and standard function libraries. The course emphasizes object oriented programming and modular design to support distributed development environments. Included are the design of classes and objects, inheritance and polymorphism, and the details about creating programs for use on a distributed network, with emphasis on JSP, Servlets, and JDBC.The course also includes coverage of the Java Collections API, fundamental I/O, exceptions, and exception handling. Students are introduced to GUI programming using the Swing library as an example of a GUI API.

The course is designed to leverage the participants' existing programming skills and to highlight the new and extended features of the Java programming framework as compared to other common languages. Comprehensive lab exercises provide hands on practice crucial to developing competence and confidence with the new skills being learned.
