Overview

This course introduces the concepts of object oriented programming using the Java
language. The features of the object oriented paradigm will be illustrated through theoretical
classes, and practical workshops and labs.

This course unit detail provides the framework for delivery in 20/21 and may be subject to change due to any additional Covid-19 impact.  Please see Blackboard / course unit related emails for any further updates.

Aims

To specify, design, test, develop, deploy, debug and run programmes of a significant
complexity using an object-oriented language (ie Java) and its standard platform. To identify
the strengths and weaknesses of the paradigm and the language.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, a student will be able to:

  • To identify the fundamental building blocks of new programming languages in general
  • Identify the advantages of object-oriented programming.
  • Design classes using the UML notation and write the code of a specified class.
  • Explain and implement object oriented concepts including inheritance, polymorphism, interfaces and abstraction.
  • Identify appropriate situations for reading/writing files from an application, be able to make secure, robust calls out to the relevant file-handling libraries in Java.
  • Use data structures of the Java Collections Framework, and create your own data structures.
  • Build interactive graphical applications using JavaFX that respond to user events and consider some basic usability concerns. Use custom components to achieve these goals where appropriate.
  • Describe the benefits of grouping files into packages. Create and deploy packages, use existing libraries.
  • Apply concepts above to existing programming language knowledge, i.e. Python.
