Course Overview
This course teaches programmers the skills necessary to create Java programming system applications and satisfies the skills necessary to pass the Sun Java Certified Programmer Exam.

Target Audience
Students who can benefit from this course are programmers who are interested in adding the Java programming language to their list of skills and students who are preparing for the Sun Certified Programmer for Java examination.

To succeed fully in this course, students should be able to:
Understand object-oriented principles
Create or compile simple programs in a language, such as C or C++ or have completed the SL-110: Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language course and have created and compiled simple Java programs.
Create and edit text files using a text editor
Use an Internet browser, such as Netscape Navigator
Skills Gained
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
Create Java technology applications that leverage the object-oriented features of the Java language, such as encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism
Execute and run a Java technology application
Use Java technology data types and expressions
Use Java technology flow control constructs
Use arrays and other data collections
Implement error-handling techniques using exception handling
Create event driven GUI using Java technology GUI components: panels, buttons, labels, text fields, and text areas
Implement I/O functionality to read from and write to data and text files
Create multithreaded programs
Create a simple Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) client that communicate through sockets
