Course Overview

The Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language course provides students with an excellent choice for beginning to learn to program using the Java programming language. This course is intended for students with little or no programming experience. This course teaches the significance of object-oriented programming, the keywords and constructs of the Java programming language, and the steps required to create simple Java programs. A fantastic new teaching tool developed by Sun is used throughout the course to help the learner more readily understand the syntax and semantics of the language. Students taking this course can receive a solid basis in the Java programming language upon which to base continued work and training.

At the end of the course, students will be able to:
• Explain key concepts related to Java technology and Java programming, identify Java product groups, and list the phases of the application development lifecycle
• Analyze a problem and design classes to solve the problem
• Develop and test a Java technology program
• Use primitive data types to store data within variables
• Demonstrate object-oriented reuse principles through the use of object references
• Use decision constructs
• Create loops
• Develop and use methods
• Implement encapsulation and constructors
• Create and use single and multi-dimensional arrays
• Use inheritance to extend classes

• Working knowledge of programming concepts
