Introduction to Java using Rational Application Developer 8.0 Training

Quick Enroll

Course#: WA2099
Courseware: Available for sale

This course introduces the Java programming language and how to develop Java applications using RAD 8.0. Students learn the syntax of the Java programming language, object-oriented programming using Java, exception handling, generics, collections, and file input/output (I/O). During the course, students will develop and test Java applications using RAD 8.0.  This course also covers a basic introduction to Java EE (Java Enterprise) since that is a common reason that people are learning about Java.

Throughout the course students will also work on a "project" which develops a complex Java application by applying principles learned to meet changing application requirements. This project is intended to simulate the programming environment they would encounter in real-world projects by providing application requirements and challenging the student to write Java code to meet those requirements.
 

Topics

 
  • Java basics
  • Basic introduction to Rational Application Developer
  • Branching and looping
  • Objects
  • Advanced class concepts
  • Arrays
  • Exceptions
  • Collections and Generics
  • Stream I/O

Practical work

  Extensive practical exercises take students through all major aspects of the design and development of Java programs. Students will be introduced to various wizards and tools available from RAD.

What you will learn

  After completing this course, the student should be able to:
  • Apply OOP principles
  • Design OO applications using abstraction, encapsulation, modularity and hierarchy
  • Create Java classes to define the function of different parts of a complex program
  • Use Java exceptions to guarantee graceful error recovery for your application
  • Use many common Java libraries
  • Do input/output using Java
  • Use RAD for Java application development

Audience

  This course is intended for programmers who are interested in adding Java to their skills.

Prerequisites

  The students should be familiar with object-oriented principles and the concept of object-oriented programming.
