Course Overview
The Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language course provides students with an excellent choice for beginning to learn to program using the Java programming language. This course is intended for students with little or no programming experience. This course teaches the significance of object-oriented programming, the keywords and constructs of the Java programming language, and the steps required to create simple Java programs. A fantastic new teaching tool developed by Sun is used throughout the course to help the learner more readily understand the syntax and semantics of the language. Students taking this course can receive a solid basis in the Java programming language upon which to base continued work and training.

At the end of the course, students will be able to:
Explain key concepts related to Java technology and Java programming, identify Java product groups, and list the phases of the application development lifecycle
Analyze a problem and design classes to solve the problem
Develop and test a Java technology program
Use primitive data types to store data within variables
Demonstrate object-oriented reuse principles through the use of object references
Use decision constructs
Create loops
Develop and use methods
Implement encapsulation and constructors
Create and use single and multi-dimensional arrays
Use inheritance to extend classes

Working knowledge of programming concepts
