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.
- 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.
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).
- 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
- Summarize each of the seven stages of the product life cycle
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
- Compile and execute a Java technology program
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

- 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
- Define and test your use of inheritance
- Explain abstraction
- Explicitly identify class libraries used in your code
- Create programs using a procedural language, such as C, or a scripting language, such as Perl
- Create and edit text files using a text editor
- Use a World Wide Web (WWW) browser
- Solve logic problems
- Describe the concept of a variable
