COMP 2613 - Java Application Development

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

​This hands-on intermediate level Java course assumes significant prior knowledge of object oriented programming as taught in COMP 1451 and COMP 2526. 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 the BCIT Learning Hub. COMP 2613 is an elective in the Applied Software Development, ASD Associate Certificate and the Computer Systems Technology, CST/PTS Diploma. Successful participants will be able to use the Java standard coding style and naming conventions to build and deploy commercial quality Java applications. By the end of this course students are prepared to move on to COMP 3656 Advanced Java Application Development and COMP 3617 Android and Mobile Applications in Java.
