INFO.2970 Introduction to Java Programming (3cr)
This course introduces students to object oriented programming with Java(TM). Basic concepts are introduced early, with a strong focus on classes. Additional topics include event driven (Windows) programming and object-oriented design. Note that this is not an introductory course to programming - Students are expected to have a working knowledge of a least one high-level programming and/or scripting language (or equivalent experience) and basic familiarity with programming (using a text editor, etc). However, it will teach some basic programming concepts during the first few weeks. Previous programming experience required. Requires the Sun Java(TM) Development Kit.
Previous programming experience required; requires J2SE Development Kit (JDK) 6.0 or higher
INFO.3010 JAVA Programming (3cr)
The JAVA (TM) programming language is now being used to write distributed Internet applications. Unlike traditional languages, the JAVA (TM) language was designed to be used on a network. Thus, it contains features needed to build efficient distributed applications that employ Internet resources. Those who intend to design World Wide Web information systems that fully utilize the Internet must have a working knowledge of this vital technology. This course allows students to explore features that set JAVA (TM) apart from traditional programming languages; obtain an overview of object-oriented design as it applies to JAVA (TM); learn about the fundamental constructs of the JAVA (TM) programming language; and write, compile, and include simple JAVA (TM) Applets within the content of HTML documents.
INFO.2970 or INFO.2680; requires Sun Java Dev. Kit
INFO.3030 Advanced Java Programming (3cr)
Java is one of the mostly widely used languages for all kinds of software development. It continues to play a dominant role in Internet application development. It is well suited for developing applications for the enterprise, and in particular, client server solutions such as web applications. This course will cover the advanced aspects of the Java programming language which are required for successful development of sophisticated applications. Topics covered in this class include: effective use of the Java language, annotations, database connectivity (JDBC) and relational mapping, XML processing (JAXB), generics, multithreading, network programming, Java Server Pages (JSP) and servlets, Design Pattern, and building and testing Java programs. Java 8 features will be introduced.
INFO.3040 Introduction to Java Web Development (3cr)
This course will introduce Java/Java Script, Java Server Face (JSF), Java Serverlet Page (JSP) Web development. Students will utilize a Windows-based development platform configured with java JDK, JBoss Application Server and Eclipse IDE. Fundamentals of Java and object-oriented programming using the Model View Controller (MVC) web application and application server architectures, Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) and Asynchronous Java Script and XML (AJAX) programming technologies will be examined. Students will also learn core skills in personalizing websites using sessions, leveraging reusable components, use of JSP tags and development of embedded Java/Java script code into HTML to build interactive web pages. Prerequisite: INFO.2970.
INFO.2970 Intro to Java Programming
INFO.3050 Survey of Perl/Python/PHP (3cr)
The goal of this course is to provide an in-depth introduction to the Python programming language followed by an introduction to both the Perl and PHP. All of these languages share common functionality and are tools commonly used to solve similar problems, but each embodies a different philosophy and approach to solving those problems. After a thorough grounding in the language's basics, we'll explore their similarities, and, more importantly, their differences. By the end of the course, its' hoped, you'll have a good idea which of these tools is right for you and the kind of applications you wish to develop with them.
