PB006 Princ. of Prog Lang. and OOP && ! PB112 Foundations of OOP in Java && ! NOW ( PB112 Foundations of OOP in Java )
This course builds on the knowledge of PB006 Principles of Programming Languages and OOP and is primarily intended for Bachelor's degree programs in Informatics (INF) and Programming and Development (PD). For students of other programs, students from other faculties, and students of minor versions of INF and PD, a new PB112 course has been created.

  • Static variables and methods, immutable objects, nested classes
  • Interfaces
  • Inheritance, polymorphism, class hierarchy, program architecture; abstract classes
  • Object identity and comparison; hash functions; collections and maps

Teaching methods
Lectures with many examples, project-oriented lab sessions, homeworks.
Assessment methods
In the semester, the students will work on a practical project, gaining points for regular submission of project iterations. Other points can be obtained for activities in seminars. The submission of three homework assignments and their acceptance by the instructor are required prerequisites for successful completion of the course. Not only functionality is evaluated, but also efficiency, object decomposition, and quality of documentation. Additional points can be obtained from two midterm tests as well as from the final exam. Both midterm tests and the final exam have the form of practical programming. The final assessment reflects the sum of the obtained points.
