This Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language training teaches you the significance of object-oriented programming. You'll learn the keywords and constructs of the Java programming language and the steps required to create simple Java technology programs - all of which help you build a useful and marketable foundation of skills.

Learn To:

  • Explain Java Technology.
  • Analyze a problem and design a solution.
  • Develop and test a Java technology program.
  • Declare, initialize and use variables.
  • Create and use objects.
  • Use operators and decision constructs.

Benefits to You

Investing in this course will give you a solid basis in the Java programming language upon which to base continued work and training. The course features the Java Platform, Standard Edition 6 (Java SE 6) platform and uses the Java SE Development Kit 6 (JDK 6) product.

Please Note:

Prior to enrolling in this course, it's ideal to have some programming experience. This experience could be with a scripting language, such as Perl, or a third-generation language (such as Basic or C).


Course Objectives

  • Demonstrate knowledge of Java technology, the Java programming language, and the product life cycle
  • Use various Java programming language constructs to create several Java technology applications
  • Use decision and looping constructs and methods to dictate program flow
  • Implement intermediate Java technology programming and object-oriented (OO) concepts in Java technology programs



Explaining Java Technology

  • Describe key concepts of the Java programming language
  • List the three Java technology product groups

Analyzing a Problem and Designing a Solution

  • Analyze a problem using object-oriented analysis
  • Design classes from which objects will be created

Developing and Testing a Java Technology Program

  • Identify the four components of a class in the Java programming language
  • Use the main method in a test class to run a Java technology program from the command line

Declaring, Initializing, and Using Variables

  • Identify the use the syntax for variables and define the syntax for a variable
  • List the eight Java programming language primitive data types
  • Declare, initialize, and use variables and constants according to Java programming language guidelines and coding standards
  • Modify variable values using operators
  • Use promotion and type casting

Creating and Using Objects

  • Declare, instantiate, and initialize object reference variables
  • Compare how object reference variables are stored in relation to primitive variables
  • Use a class (the String class) included in the Java Software Developer Kit (SDK)
  • Use the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) class library specification to learn about other classes in this application programming interface (API)

Using Operators and Decision Constructs

  • Identify relational and conditional operators
  • Create if and if/else constructs
  • Use the switch construct

Using Loop Constructs

  • Create while loops
  • Develop for loops

Developing and Using Methods

  • Describe the advantages of methods and define worker and calling methods
  • Declare and invoke a method
  • Compare object and static methods
  • Use overloaded methods

Implementing Encapsulation and Constructors

  • Use encapsulation to protect data
  • Create constructors to initialize objects

Creating and Using Arrays

  • Code one-dimensional arrays
  • Set array values using length attribute and a loop
  • Pass arguments to the main method for use in a program
  • Create two-dimensional arrays

Implementing Inheritance

  • Define and test your use of inheritance
  • Explain abstraction
  • Explicitly identify class libraries used in your code
