Even if you've never written a single line of programming code, the courses in this bundle will teach you to create many practical and sophisticated computer programs using both Java and XML.
In Introduction to Java Programming, you'll start with the basics of program design and go on to write your own programs that perform input and output, calculations, decision making, and loops. Build your knowledge and confidence with easy-to-understand examples and plenty of skill-building exercises. By the time we're done, you'll be comfortable with Java programming and ready for more!
Intermediate Java Programming will deepen your understanding of object-oriented programming in Java and help you build sophisticated GUI programs that read and write data files and present information to the user with windows, menus, buttons, text boxes, and more. Organize information using multiple classes in Java's class hierarchy using inheritance. Explore some of the hundreds of classes that are built into the Java language. Over this course, you'll build several complete applications that combine these concepts.
XML is today's most popular way to store and send information. In Introduction to XML, you'll master the essentials of XML through easy-to-follow, real-world examples. Even if you've never tried computer programming, you'll discover how quickly you can learn to produce powerful "code". And the biggest surprise is how much fun programming can be!
