For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))

Java module J712
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module J712. This topic is presented on public courses Learning to Program in Java, Java Bootcamp, Java Programming for the Web

Your program is affected by the environment around it. Its performance will vary depending on aspects as diverse as user inputs and the availability (or lack) of a network service. Java provides you with exceptions, which are a mechanism through which you trap and handle behaviours that differ from the norm.

4396Java Utility class - flexible replacement for array. Also cacheing in objects and multiple catch clauses example.
In Java, utility class objects are used as flexible alternatives to arrays to hold collections of other obejcts.

4350Keyboard reader for Java programming newcomers
I've added a new class of Keyboard Reader for our Java courses [here], for the earlier examples and exercises just after "Hello World".

3045After Course Resources - do we publish sample answers. Example from Java Exceptions module.
At the end of each module on our courses, there's an exercise for the delegates. It lets them make use of many of the elements they've learned about to consolidate their knowledge.

3048String handling - from first steps to practical examples
Initial String handling examples on a training course are sometimes a bit mundane - and that's because we have to cover some of the basics like "what is a string" before we start reading them in useful quantities from files, databases, or web resources. But it's important to get those basics understood ...
2862Fail Safe Error Handling in Java via Exceptions
"What could possibly go wrong?" ... The usual answer from a cynic is "anything, and usually at the most inconvenient time, and in the most unexpected way!".

2622Handling unusual and error conditions - exceptions
"I can't answer that question in the way you expect" ... that's something that may be said to you occasionally - you ask someone what suit a playing card is that they're holding and they cannot tell you because it is a joker, or you ask what number is written on a piece of paper when the paper is blank. The ...
2420Exceptions in Java - why and how
Although it's common practise to include a static main test program in a class, it's something that newcomers can have some difficulty following ... so we don't do it too early on the course - we keep classes and programs that use those classes (even if they are just test programs) each in their own ...
1875What are exceptions - Python based answer
How do you check for run time errors in your program? You'll include tests with if statements in almost every program you write, to ensure that user entered data is reasonable / as you would expect ... but you will also need to do more that that.

1066Final, Finally and Finalize - three special words in Java
A final method or variable is one that can't be overridden - you can define a method as final within a class to ensure that any extensions to the class don't replace it. If you add a finally block onto the end of a try / catch exception handler, you're defining a block of code that will be run if the ...
