- Hands-on exercises in the lab
This course is intended for students who will major in computing science or a related program.
Note: Students who have received credit for CISY 3480 will not receive further credit by taking CSIS 1275.
- Usage of the official Java Development Kit (JDK) and any appropriate third party development kit for Java
- Data types, variables, and comments
- Arithmetic operators
- Math and String class
- Decision Structures
- Loops and Files
- Classes and Interfaces
- Introduction to basic Search and Sorting algorithm
- Basic to more advanced Swing components and Event handling
- The basics of Java applets.
At the end of this course the successful student will be able to:
- Identify the purpose and behavior of a provided code fragment.
- Adapt an existing code fragment to change its behavior.
- Modify conditional and iterative structures in a short program.
- Write well-structured, well- documented, well-commented readable code.
- Design, implement, test, and debug a program that uses each of the following fundamental programming constructs: basic computation, simple I/O, basic conditional and iterative structures, and functions.
- Describe the syntax and semantics of conditional structures.
- Use conditional structures.
- Apply the techniques of decomposition to break a program into smaller pieces.
- Describe the role of formal and actual parameters of a function.
- Describe how strings and arrays are allocated, manipulated and used.
- Compare iterative and recursive solutions for elementary problems such as factorial.
- Formulate loop invariants for simple loops.
- Demonstrate loop termination.
- Implement, test, and debug simple recursive methods.
- Explain the philosophy of object- oriented design and the concepts of encapsulation, abstraction, inheritance, interface and polymorphism.
- Describe how the class mechanism supports encapsulation and information hiding.
- Compare and contrast the notions of overloading and overriding.
- Identify the scope of the variables involved in a given code.
