COMP 2526 - Object-Oriented Programming with Java

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

Students continue to learn to develop applications with the Java language using the Object Oriented Paradigm. Focus is on problem solving, proper Object Oriented Programming techniques, and clear coding style. The three fundamentals of OOP are covered data abstraction and encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism with emphasis on the last two (inheritance and polymorphism). Data structures including Linked Lists, Queues, Stacks and Trees will be examined along with some common search and sort algorithms. Basic Java is explored including interfaces, exception handling, and user interfaces. Features of the latest Java Development Kit will also be examined. Several Java packages are examined including java.io, java.awt, swing, and others.
