Course Objectives This course provides advanced topics in Java programming language. The course is tailored towards students who have already learned fundamentals of Java Programming. The course starts with a brief recap of classes/objects, methods, encapsulation, input/output, exceptions and the concepts of inheritance, and polymorphism. Graphical user interfaces (GUIs) in Java, the use of layout managers and design of event listener objects are introduced. Advanced topics including serialization, XML and JSON data processing, multi-threading, sockets, and database connectivity are discussed. The students are exposed to Junit testing and debugging. The students are expected to complete a project involving the design and implementation of a fairly complex Java program that consists of a GUI and utilizes at least two of the advanced programming areas.
Course Description The students who succeeded in this course;
  • will be able use Java Collections Framework
  • will be able to develop GUI based programs
  • will be able to develop multi-threaded sockets programs
  • will be able to connect to a database and manipulate data
  • will be able to test programs using Junit and debugger
Course Content This course introduces the students advanced topics in Java programming language.
