Intro to Java Using RAD v7.5


Course Description | Outline | IT Home


This course introduces the Java programming language and how to develop Java applications using RAD v7.5. 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 v7.5.

Rational Application Developer for WebSphere (RAD) is IBM's Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) for visually designing, constructing, testing, and deploying Web services, portals, and Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) applications.

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 covered include:
* Java basics
* Introduction to Eclipse and RAD
* Branching and looping
* Objects
* Advanced class concepts
* Arrays
* Exceptions
* Collections and Generics
* Stream I/O
