COMP 2613 - Java Application Development

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

​This hands-on, intensive intermediate level Java course assumes a prior knowledge of object oriented programming as taught in COMP 1451. Students who do not have a strong understanding of object-oriented programming should complete COMP 2526 first. COMP 2613 is an applied study of Java application development using the Java Standard Edition SDK, the Java framework core APIs and the Eclipse IDE. Topics include: packages, inner classes, file i/o, an overview of database connectivity, an introduction to concurrency, user interfaces, model-view-controller and other design patterns, and networks. Lectures and code examples are reinforced with hands-on labs, assignments, and mandatory online work outside of class using D2L. Successful participants will learn to use the Java standard coding style and naming conventions to build and deploy Java applications. By the end of this course students are prepared to move on to COMP 3656 Introduction to Java Web Application Development and COMP 3617 Android and Mobile Applications in Java. COMP 2613 is a requirement for the Advanced Java Development Associate Certificate.

Prerequisite(s)

COMP 1451 or COMP 2526 or equivalent knowledge of object oriented programming.
