Java Programming 1StayAhead Training
The Java Programming 1 course is closely aligned with the Oracle Java SE 8 Programmer I exam.
The course comprises sessions dealing with Java apps, variables and operators, decision and loop constructs, arrays, methods, objects, classes, static members, enums, object-oriented principles, exception handling, packages and imports, selected APIs and lambda expressions.
Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.
The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:
- Writing, compiling, and executing simple Java applications
- Declaring and initialising variables
- Constructing expressions using relational, arithmetic and logical operators
- Constructing decision and loop statements
- Constructing and manipulating arrays of data
- Declaring and invoking methods using both parameters and return values
- Constructing classes and objects
- Creating static members
- Constructing enums
- Encapsulating classes
- Implementing a hierarchical application design using inheritance
- Exploiting polymorphism
- Throwing and catching exceptions
- Organising classes into packages
- Producing code that uses wrappers, Strings, dates and ArrayLists
- Constructing a simple lambda expression
The Java Programming 1 course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn Java as a first language and developers/engineers who want to migrate to Java from another language, particularly those with little or no object-oriented knowledge.
If you are an experienced object-oriented developer with a good grasp of programming constructs such as variables, decisions, loops, arrays, classes and objects (albeit in another language), you should consider taking the Java Programming 2 course instead.
This course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to produce simple Java applications that exploit all core elements of the language including variables, expressions, selection and iteration, arrays, methods, classes and objects, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism, exceptions, and some commonly used library classes. The course further aims to prepare the delegate to sit the Oracle Java SE 8 Programming I exam.
This course helps to prepare for the following exam:
Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) Java SE8 Programmer I exam (1Z0-808).
Attending this course will help delegates gain many of the skills and product knowledge requirements as outlined in the exam objectives. Studying this course and its associated reference materials can form part of the preparation to achieve certification. Experience, practice, self-study and aptitude are also key requirements for exam success.
Before taking any exam, ensure you have the recommended experience. The Oracle website lists all exam requirements and these are updated regularly.
Exams are not included as part of the course.
Delegates attending this course should be able to define general programming concepts including compilation and execution, variables, arrays, sequence, selection and iteration, navigate the filesystem (on the command line ideally), edit and save text files and browse the web. This knowledge can be obtained by attendance on the pre-requisite Introduction to Programming course.
