Introduction to Java
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
The Java programming language is now over 12 years old, and continues to be a leading contender for Internet, web page, and embedded programming tasks. Sun Microsystems has finally taken the first steps towards moving Java into the "open source" environment which should make Java all the more acceptable to many organizations that require such "hands-off" control. There are 3 primary communities making up the Java environment: SE (Standard Edition), ME (Mobile/Embedded Edition), and EE (Enterprise Edition).
This 4-day workshop will take the attendee starting from the basics of Java, involving examples and hands-on exercises using the Java 6 SE and SDK as the primary learning platform. The attendees will learn how the Java programming language uses its Object-Oriented nature to simplify the programming task. In addition, attendees will learn the concepts of the Java language such as creating simple Java programs, declaring and using variables and arrays, using operators, making decisions, using iterative structures, declaring and using methods, and implementing inheritance designs.
This workshop will prepare the attendees to make initial and productive use of the Java programming language in many real-life programming situations. They will also learn how to continue their learning of the Java programming language after the workshop has concluded.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is best attended by those having programming experience in either a procedural or Object-Oriented language, or those with logical and/or mathematical skills. The attendees coming from the IT development and/or programming departments will include job titles such as programmers, developers, application designers, system designers, and maintenance programmers. Others that can benefit from attending this workshop are those with titles such as technical writer, web developer, and technical manager. A familiarity with computer programming concepts and basics will be very helpful, but not absolutely necessary as this workshop can be successfully completed by beginning/novice programmers.
A basic understanding of a programming language is assumed. The ability to use a text-editor to enter, compile and run simple scripting or procedural programs is also assumed. Having some experience in the solving of logic-based problems would be very helpful in gaining the most benefits from this workshop.
- Understand the Java programming language concepts and constructs.
- Learn how to create, compile, debug, and run Java programs and applets.
- Discover how to use Java decision-making and iterative constructs to solve logic problems.
- Learn how to use Java methods to modularize a Java application.
- Understand the basic concepts of Object-Oriented technologies used by Java.
- Using Java constructs, create several Java applications and applets.
A leader in live technical training since 1978
For many years New Instruction, LLC had been known as an innovative provider of training, consulting and software development services, and clients have often asked us to share our software quality methodologies with them. Those requests led to the development of our longest running workshop, "Testing and Quality Assurance Techniques", now in it's 11th edition.
