Java 9 Programming for Object Oriented (OO) Experienced Developers (TT2100J9)

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

Java 9 Programming for Object Oriented Experienced Developers is a five-day, comprehensive hands-on introduction to Java training course geared for developers who have prior working knowledge of object-oriented programming languages such as C# or C++.� Throughout the course students learn the best practices for writing great object-oriented programs in Java 9, using sound development techniques, new improved features for better performance and new capabilities for addressing rapid application development.� In addition to the normal exercises that are liberally sprinkled throughout the course, there is a case study that covers the entire spectrum from use cases to object-oriented design to implemented classes.� This case study supplements the course and can be used during and after the course as a reference and a tool for reviewing and practicing what was learned in class.��

Note: Students new to OO programing or from a Non-OO Development background (such as C, COBOL, Visual Basic, etc.) should consider the TT2120-J9 Java 9 and OO Essentials for Developers New to OO or the TT2125-J9 Java and OO OnRamp� program as an alternative.

Audience

Programmers with prior Object-Oriented exposure and background (such as C#, C++, Smalltalk, etc.)

Prerequisites

This is an introductory- level Java course, designed for experienced developers who wish to get up and running with Java, or who need to reinforce sound Java coding practices, immediately.� Attendees should have a working knowledge of developing OO software applications.

Learning Objectives

Students who attend Java 9 Programming for OO Developers will leave this course armed with the required skills to develop solid object-oriented applications written in Java, using sound coding techniques and best coding practices. Geared for developers with prior OO development experience in languages such as C#, C++ or SmallTalk, this course will teach students everything they need to become productive in essential Java programming.�

Working within in an engaging, hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will learn to:

  • Understand not only the fundamentals of the Java language, but also its importance, uses, strengths and weaknesses
  • Understand the basics of the Java language and how�it relates to OO programming and the Object Model
  • Learn to use Java exception handling features
  • Work with the Java 9 modular system (Project Jigsaw)
  • Understand and use classes, inheritance and polymorphism
  • Understand and use collections, generics, autoboxing, and enumerations
  • Process large amount of data using Lambda expressions and the Stream API
  • Use the JDBC API for database access
  • Take advantage of the Java tooling that is available with the programming environment being used in the class
  • Become familiar with the APIs used to access data and other resources
  • Understand the concepts of Object-to-Relational mapping frameworks using the Java Persistence API (JPA)
  • Get an introduction to dependency injection using CDI

Specific Java 9 features that are covered in the course include:

  • The Modular system (Project Jigsaw)
  • Private methods in interfaces
