Course objectives
The goal of this course is to extend the basic knowledge of Java and master its practical application in concrete projects. The student will be able to appropriately decompose simple programming tasks and write robust code including automated tests. The student will get acquainted with basics of GUI development, multithreaded applications, and fundamental APIs. Further, the student will be able to develop simple database (JDBC) and web applications. After passing the course, the student is expected to be capable of designing and developing simple applications in Java.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to:
- do object design in Java;
- use and write unit tests in JUnit;
- access relational databases in Java via JDBC;
- write flawless multithreaded applications;
- save configurations, write internationalized and localized applications, use log records;
- write very simple Java web applications over basic API (servlet, JSP);
- describe the principles of applications with a graphical user interface;
- write simple applications with GUI in Java;
- optimize and debug application performance.
