Learn to write server- or client-side applications in Java.
This course has been withdrawn
This course introduces you to the Java programming
language, and its Internet and intranet use.
The course starts with an introduction to the terminology and structure of
Java, so that you know your applet from your servlet, and the
difference between a JSP, a JVM and a JRE. We then go on to cover the fundamentals
of the Java language - comments, compiling, variables, constants, statements,
declarations, conditionals, loops, arrays, etc.
Java is an object oriented language; the course briefly covers the
principles of object orientation before it goes on to cover the definition
and creating of classes of objects, and the use of standard classes. We
look at static and dynamic methods, extending classes to create subclasses
via inheritance, polymorphism, overloading ... as well as constructors,
destructors, inner classes and much more.
It's important that you manage your design and code in an object
oriented language, and the course moves on to briefly introduce
design principles, such as UML, before spending rather longer on
Java-specific topics such as packages, beans, levels of access
to variables, jars, classpaths, and so on.
Handling text through string objects, and using standard collection
objects such as vectors, stacks and hashtables is covered once you
have a good grounding in how Java's objects work. We also cover
input, output and exception handing in some depth on this section
of the course. Threads, serialisation, synchronisation and
internationalisation will also be overviewed.
If you're going to be writing Java applications to run on a web
server, you'll need to know about servlets and probably JSP as
well; the course goes on to cover those subjects, giving you the
opportunity to write practical examples to have a Java program
look up information for Web presentation from a server-based
resource. For effective displaying of information, Java can
also run as an applet in your browser, and we'll show you how
to generate graphics through standard tools such as the AWT and
The course concludes with a section on resources that are available,
and a forward-looking lecture that overviews many more of the
facilities available in Java, and what they can do for you.
Practical experience in programming in another

Getting the most from your Well House Consultants course
The Java language is now firmly established in a wide variety
of applications, with an incredible range of facilities and options
available to go with it. One of the most common uses of Java
programs is on a web server, where "Servelets" or "JSP"s provide
the logic behind web based applications from banking to weather
forecasting, and from government sites through scientific research.
