Course Objectives

Many courses teach the Java programming language without giving delegates the benefit of a solid grounding in Object-Oriented techniques. Likewise, an OO course can be somewhat dry and theoretical without the benefit of implementation within the framework of a current programming language. In this course we cover the main OO concepts and, as each new concept is introduced, its implementation in the Java programming language is shown. The course is heavily practical and approximately half of the delegates time will be spent on design and programming exercises. The course is maintained at the most recent release level of Java.
