Java Class Design

  • Implement encapsulation
  • Implement inheritance including visibility modifiers and composition
  • Implement polymorphism
  • Override hashCode, equals, and toString methods from Object class
  • Create and use singleton classes and immutable classes
  • Develop code that uses static keyword on initialise blocks, variables, methods, and classes

Java Basics

  • Define the scope of variables
  • Define the structure of a Java class
  • Create executable Java applications with a main method; run a Java program from the command line; including console output.
  • Import other Java packages to make them accessible in your code
  • Compare and contrast the features and components of Java such as: platform independence, object orientation, encapsulation, etc.

Working with Java Data Types

  • Declare and initialise variables (including casting of primitive data types)
  • Differentiate between object reference variables and primitive variables
  • Know how to read or write to object fields
  • Explain an Object’s Lifecycle (creation, “dereference by reassignment” and garbage collection)
  • Develop code that uses wrapper classes such as Boolean, Double and Integer.

Using Operators and Decision Constructs

  • Use Java operators; including parentheses to override operator precedence
  • Test equality between Strings and other objects using == and equals ()
  • Create if and if/else and ternary constructs
  • Use a switch statement

Creating and Using Arrays

  • Declare, instantiate, initialise and use a one-dimensional array
  • Declare, instantiate, initialise and use multi-dimensional array

Using Loop Constructs

  • Create and use while loops
  • Create and use for loops including the enhanced for loop
  • Create and use do/while loops
  • Compare loop constructs
  • Use break and continue

Working with Methods and Encapsulation

  • Create methods with arguments and return values; including overloaded methods
  • Apply the static keyword to methods and fields
  • Create and overload constructors; including impact on default constructors
  • Apply access modifiers
  • Apply encapsulation principles to a class
  • Determine the effect upon object references and primitive values when they are passed into methods that change the values

Working with Inheritance

  • Describe inheritance and its benefits
  • Develop code that demonstrates the use of polymorphism; including overriding and object type versus reference type
  • Determine when casting is necessary
  • Use super and this to access objects and constructors
  • Use abstract classes and interfaces

Handling Exceptions

  • Differentiate among checked exceptions, unchecked exceptions, and errors
  • Create a try-catch block and determine how exceptions alter normal program flow
  • Describe the advantages of exception handling
  • Create and invoke a method that throws an exception
  • Recognise common exception classes (such as NullPointerException, ArithmeticException, ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException, ClassCastException)

Java Concurrency

  • Create worker threads using Runnable, Callable and use an ExecutorService to concurrently execute tasks
  • Identify potential threading problems among deadlock, starvation, livelock, and race conditions
  • Use synchronised keyword and java.util.concurrent.atomic package to control the order of thread execution
  • Use java.util.concurrent collections and classes including CyclicBarrier and CopyOnWriteArrayList
  • Use parallel Fork/Join Framework
  • Use parallel Streams including reduction, decomposition, merging processes, pipelines and performance.

Working with selected classes from the Java API

  • Manipulate data using the StringBuilder class and its methods
  • Creating and manipulating Strings
  • Create and manipulate calendar data using classes from java.time.LocalDateTime, java.time.LocalDate, java.time.LocalTime, java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter, java.time.Period
  • Declare and use an ArrayList of a given type
  • Write a simple Lambda expression that consumes a Lambda Predicate expression
