Practical Java Language Topics

1 Day Onsite or 7 Hour Online Class and Hands-On Training.

The Java platform has many powerful capabilities to help developers in the day to day tasks of creating good software systems. Some of this are built into the langauge, and some are separate tools that have become widely adopted because of their usefulness.

This one day course looks at the following three tools that can be of enoromous help to programmers that are writing Java systems:

  • ant: A Java-based build tool that uses XML configuration files to control the build
  • JUnit: A testing framework that simpleifies writing and maintaing test code. This course uses JUnit 4, and the Java 5 annotations associated with it.
  • Logging with log4J, Commons Logging, or Java logging: Logging packages that make logging efficient and easy to use

These technologies are very powerful, yet it is easy to learn the basics in a very short time. This one day course provides those basics, and gives programmers the experience necessary to use these tools to be more productive and create better software systems.

All labs can be done with the Eclipse IDE or a simple editor, and the lab instructions include detailed directions on both environments.
