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 have a solid introduction to programming will learn Java application development with the Java Standard Edition SDK using 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 3613 Advanced Java Application Development and COMP 3617 Android and Mobile Applications in Java.

Prerequisite(s)

COMP 1451 or equivalent knowledge of object oriented programming.
