Course Code: GES337
Cover the fundamentals of Java needed to grasp the program. Understand how to write a Java program, create a class, basic Java syntax, mathematics in Java, and objects in Java.
Learn about controlling program flow. During this section of the course you’ll understand additional loop control, classpath, code libraries, and Jar files.
Explore arrays, how to enhance arrays for loops, multi-dimensional arrays, and typecasting with arrays of primitives. You’ll also learn about inheritance, polymorphism, how to create a derived class, typecasting with object references, and methods inherited from object.
Learn about interfaces, including how to create an interface definition, implementation, reference variables, inheritance, and additional uses for interfaces. You’ll also learn about exceptions. Your coverage of exceptions encompasses attempting to catch risky code, guaranteeing the execution of code, and how to create and use your own exception classes.
Understand the fundamental collections of sets, lists, and maps. Learn about iterators and how to create collectible classes.
Master inner classes, a.k.a. nested classes, before taking the course’s final exam. You will also complete a project regarding a hotel reservations case study prior to completion of the course.
