Java102—Introduction to Java for Non-Programmers: Part 2 Minimize


This 5-day, lecture-and-lab course presents object-oriented programming with the Java programming language. Key topics include the Java Development Kit (JDK), Java SE 7, classes, objects, encapsulation, interfaces, inheritance, polymorphism, abstract classes, packages, event-driven programming, graphical user interfaces (GUIs), exception handling, file processing and generic collections. Students create Java applications, understand Java object-oriented programming, learn to use various Java Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and participate in extensive hands-on laboratory assignments. After taking this course and gaining some practical Java programming experience, students will be prepared to take Java300—Advanced Java Programmers
