Description:
This intensive, hands-on course explores advanced Java Standard Edition language features and packages. Students will learn to parse XML documents using the JAXP API. Multi-threaded applications will be covered in detail including concepts such as deadlocks and race conditions. Students will also learn how to utilize more advanced I/O capabilities with object serialization and low-level file I/O with the java.nio package. Client/server applications will be written utilizing both the java.net and java.rmi packages. Additional topics on JNDI and performance tuning, as well as appendices on encryption and JNI, round out the course.
Prerequisites:
Participants should have completed Intermediate Java Programming or have equivalent experience. The course is aimed at Java programmers who wish to increase their depth of knowledge in Java programming and explore the uses of the various advanced packages.
