Course Overview

This Introduction to Java for Non-Programmers course presents object-oriented programming with the Java programming language. Key topics include the Java Development Kit (JDK), Java SE 7, classes, objects, encapsulation, interfaces, inheritance, polymorphism, abstract classes, packages, event-driven programming, graphical user interfaces (GUIs), exception handling, file processing and generic collections.

Students will learn how to create Java applications, understand Java object-oriented programming, learn to use various Java Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and participate in extensive hands-on laboratory assignments.

This Java course is available in our Public Class Training in Kuala Lumpur or In House training at client’s venue throughout Malaysia.
