This Java SE 8 Fundamentals training introduces you to object-oriented programming using the Java language. Through hands-on exercises, you'll begin to build a baseline of knowledge to propel your career in development.
By enrolling in this course, you'll expand your knowledge of Java SE 8, while building your Java skill set. You'll build a solid basis in the Java programming language upon which to base continued work and training.
- Use Java programming language constructs to create a Java technology application.
- Use decision and looping constructs and methods to dictate program flow.
- Understand basic object oriented concepts such as inheritance, encapsulation, and abstraction.
- Use and manipulate object references, and to write simple error handling code.
- Use the new SE 8 java.time and java.time.format packages to format and print the local date and time.
- Specify a data modification by passing a predicate lambda expression to the Collections class.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
- Write Java code that uses variables, arrays, conditional and loop constructs
- Manipulate primitive numeric data and string data using Java operators
- Create Java classes and use object references
- Access the fields and methods of an object
- Manipulate text data using the methods of the String and StringBuilder classes
- Use casting without losing precision or causing errors
- Declare, override, and invoke methods
- Access and create static fields and methods
- Use classes from the java.time and java.time.format packages to format and print the local date and time
- Encapsulate a class using access modifiers and overloaded constructors
- Define and implement a simple class hierarchy
- Demonstrate polymorphism by implementing a Java Interface
- Use a Predicate Lambda expression as the argument to a method
- Handle a checked exception in a Java application

Although this is an introductory course to Java Programming, it is recommended that anyone wishing to attend this course already has some basic knowledge of programming concepts, such as logic loops, conditional testing, declarations for storage and manipulation of data and failing that knowledge, potential delegates are confident in their basic mathematical, logical, and analytical problem-solving skills.
Those delegates who are attending via either virtual or extended classroom will be required to provide either dual monitors or single monitor plus a tablet device.
