Course objectives
The goal of this course is to give the students basic knowledge of object oriented programming in Java. The students will become familiar with the basic Java and OO terminology, as well as necessary language syntax and semantics rules. Moreover, they will be able to analyze, design and implement simple software solutions with the appropriate tools.
  • Introduction to Java - principles, history. Java development lifecycle, basic development tools.
  • Basic concepts and terminology of object-oriented programming - class, instance (object), variable, method. Encapsulation.
  • Cooperation and communication among objects.
  • Interfaces, specification, implementation.
  • Basic programmer's conventions - coding style, naming, documentary comment, API documentation.
  • Unit testing with junit.
  • Inheritance, polymorphism. Class hierarchy. Architecture of Java programs - methods, classes, packages.
  • Abstract classes. Access modifiers.
  • Basic program constructs. Primitive datatypes, object types and arrays.
  • Exceptions. Built-in exceptions, design of custom exceptions.
  • Java containers.
  • Java I/O.
  • Basic design patterns.

Assessment methods
In the course of the semester, the students will be given 8 tasks (+ one premium), 4 points each, gaining 32 points together. The algorithmic optimality together with coding style and documentation will be taken into evaluation. 40 points can be obtained from in-term tests, as well as 28 points from the final one. 70 out of the total 100 points is required to complete the course successfully.
