JAVA SE 7 DEVELOPMENT – GTIT1
This 5-day course provides thorough coverage of the Java programming language and the Java Standard Edition (SE) 7 development platform. You will learn how to implement object-oriented applications using Java, and how to make use of common APIs in the Java SE library.
This course is aimed at students who are moving into developing business applications using Java SE.
What you’ll learn
- Writing clean Java code
- Implementing object-oriented solutions in Java
- Using core Java SE classes
- Handling exceptions and assertions
- Working with files and databases
- Using multithreading and concurrency
This course is designed for applications programmers and designers planning to develop applications using the Java Virtual Machine.
Students should have taken the Software Development for Non-Programmers course or have programmed in at least one programming language – preferably C or C++. Some familiarity with Object Oriented Programming is desired but not required. The required skills are taught in the following courses:
- GTPL8 – Software Development for Non Programmers 4- day Course
- GTPL9- C Programming 5- day Course
- GTPL11 – C ++ Programming 5- day Course
