Application Development with Java COMP 3601

Computer Systems Course

International Fees

International fees are typically 3.12 times the domestic tuition. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

​This forth-level programming course follows on from COMP 2601 and assumes students have significant prior knowledge of object-oriented programming using Java. COMP 3601 starts with using Java core APIs and the Eclipse IDE with industry standard coding styles and naming conventions. Students practice how to build and deploy commercial quality Java applications with Event Driven Architecture. Labs and exercises use a variety of skills to debug programs and use design patterns to develop advanced applications in Java. Topics include: packages, inner classes, file I/O, an overview of database connectivity, user interfaces, model-view-controller (MVC) and other design patterns for standalone Java applications as well as Java web applications. Participants develop database enabled web applications and are introduced to Java web tier development. There is a focus on the design and how to build, deploy and distribute Java web applications into application servers. They configure and customize a simple web application server with Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) to create and edit data from Java Web Applications. Maven is used with Java Servlets as web application controllers and Java Server Pages (JSP) to build and deploy Java web apps on JEE containers, implemented by a WildFly application server. COMP 3601 is part of three BCIT Computing Associate Certificates; Applied Software Development (ASD), Advanced Java Application Development (AJD), a prerequisite for Web and Mobile Applications (WMA) and a recommended elective in the CST FLEX Diploma. Upon completion, successful students will be able to build and deploy well designed basic Java Web applications and be prepared to move on to COMP 4601- Advanced Java Web App Development. ​COMP3601 will be offered in the Spring (April) and Fall (September) terms.​

Course is 48 hours - 36 hours synchronous online classes and 12 hours asynchronous activities/labs. The class meets once per week for 3 hours online and requires an additional 1 hour per week asynchronously. Please Note: Attendance, participation in class and the BCIT Learning Hub are mandatory. You should prepare to spend 2-3 hours on homework for every 1 hour of class time. This course may require an average total time commitment of 12-15+ hours per week. 3 hours of synchronous class, 1-hour asynchronous class time and 9-12+ hours per week for homework. Late registration is not permitted. BCIT Computing is primarily a Microsoft Windows environment. Students must provide their own current model Windows-compatible PC. i5 or higher equivalent processor, with 8 GB of RAM minimum, and 256 GB minimum storage. Highspeed internet access is needed for online sections and for homework. Mac users must have the ability to manage and support their iOS computer. They may need to create a virtual Windows environment using Parallels or VMWare Fusion. COMP instructors may not be able to assist Mac users with software compatibility issues. BCIT does not provide access to Parallels or support for students to use a Mac to run Windows. Due to the substantial time required on labs and assignments, students are advised not to take any other programming language courses simultaneously.
