Mastering Java 7 for OO 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++.  Throughout the course students learn the best practices for writing great object-oriented programs in Java 7, using sound development techniques, new improved features for better performance, and new capabilities for addressing rapid application development. 

This course also includes our Java Developer Case Study project that covers the entire application development spectrum from use cases to object-oriented design to implemented classes.  This project 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.

Course Overview Course Objectives: What You'll Learn Audience: Who Should Attend Pre-Requisites & Learning Path Course Topics & Agenda Student Materials & Set Up

> Course Overview

The first part of the course will cover the key JEE components from a top-level perspective, reviewing how JEE is positioned in the industry, as well as the potential benefits to be gained, for both you and your clients, from combining the strengths of the Java Platform and the JEE technology framework. The course will then explore the variety of challenges that exist in distributed and web-based systems that may negatively impact not only your project resources, but also your project plans and other aspects of project management.


The second half of the course will further detail, from a more technical perspective, the benefits and business value of using the combination of Java and JEE, exploring the available vendor solutions and tools available as well as their benefits or pitfalls. If your organization has already selected a JEE compliant product such as IBM WebSphere™, Oracle WebLogic™, Apache Tomcat, or JBoss, for example, this course can detail specific vendor enhancements or administration features for your particular tool so you may clearly understand what added value your chosen application server will offer. If your company or team has not yet finalized its tool selection, we can easily provide a comprehensive comparison of a wide variety of available tools, their features, benefits and failures, to assist you in making your tools selection.


> What You'll Learn: Course Objectives

Students who attend Mastering Java 7 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 it’s 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 multi-threading and exception handling features

  • Understand and use classes, inheritance and polymorphism

  • Understand and use collections, generics, autoboxing, and enumerations including new Java features and capabilities

  • Work with the logging API and framework that is part of the Java platform

  • Use the JDBC API for database access

  • Use Java for networking and communication applications

  • Work with annotations

  • Understand and work with the classes in the concurrent package

  • Outline the options for GUI applications in Java

  • Take advantage of the Java tooling that is available with the programming environment being used in the class

  • Specific Java 7 features that are covered in the course include: Automatic closure of resources; Handling multiple exceptions in a single catch block; The diamond operator; Support for multi-core platforms; The Java NIO package

Need different skills or topics? 

If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be easily adjusted to accommodate.  We offer additional Java programming, design and security courses which may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your development objectives.
Course Structure

Throughout the course students will be led through a series of progressively advanced topics, where each topic consists of lecture, group discussion, comprehensive hands-on lab exercises, and lab review. This course is “skills-centric”, designed to train attendees in essential object oriented, Java development skills, coupling the most current, effective techniques with the soundest coding practices.
Hands- on Learning

This course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, with extensive programming exercises designed to reinforce fundamental skills and concepts learned in the lessons.  Our courses include ample materials and labs to ensure all students are either appropriately challenged, or assisted, at all times – no matter their skill level.

> Who Should Attend: Audience & Pre-Requisites

This is an introductory- level Java course, designed for experienced object oriented 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 programming object oriented languages such as C# or C++, or should have recently completed dedicated OOAD training. 

> Related Courses: Suggested Learning Path

We will collaborate with you to design the best solution to ensure your needs are met, whether we customize the material, or devise a different educational path to help your team best prepare for this training.

Take Before: Students should have practical skills equivalent to or should have received training in the following topic(s) as a pre-requisite:


TT1130 Object-Oriented Analysis & Design Using UML 2.x
