Effective Java Programming
What are the goals of best practice.
Test Driven Development
Unit testing via the JUnit framework. Automating testing through continuous integration.
Attain type safety and eliminating run time errors with Generics. Writing generic classes and methods. Learn to identity and correct deficient code through refactoring and loose coupling.
Design Patterns and Managing Change
Learn the key Object Oriented Design Patterns (Template Method, Strategy, Proxy, Singleton, Observer, Factory) and their need/applicability to the software design and implementation process. Learn about Inversion of Control and the benefits it brings. Use MVC to create a GUI application with the Swing libraries
Effective use of the Collections API
Selecting the best collections classes. Prevent memory leaks with weak/phantom references.
Understand the issues around accessing relational database data from an object centric programming paradigm. Use an Object-Relational mapping framework (Hibernate) to solve it and work at a higher abstraction layer than raw JDBC.
Explore and understand the Java concurrency API's particularily the new functionality offered with Java 5 and now 6. Write reliable thread safe code. Avoiding race conditions and deadlocks. Learn to manage the performance implications of synchronisation.
Packaging and Securing Your Application
