Intensive and hands-on, this three day course emphasizes becoming productive quickly in the Java language. This course quickly covers the Java 5.0 language syntax and then moves into more advanced features of the language such as abstract classes, interfaces, generics, packages, and exception handling. Students will then learn two foundational API libraries: I/O streams and collections. Additional appendices on threads, J2EE, and Eclipse are provided for further study.
