Game Development with Java Swing

The hands-on instructor-led training is designed to helps student develop applications as well as build visually interesting User Interface using Java Programming Language.

After completing this course, student will be able to

  • Describe the basic and object-oriented programming concepts, the Java platform, and types of Java programs, as well as how to install and configure the Java SDK.
  • Know how to use constants, variables and various data types.
  • Create and use methods, classes and instantiate objects from classes.
  • Define blocks and scope of a variable, overload methods and constructors, and work with constants.
  • Accept keyboard input, use the JOptionPane class, draw flowcharts, and make decisions by using if ..else and switch statements, use AND, OR, conditional, and NOT operators, and their order of precedence.
  • Use while loops, do… while loops, shortcut arithmetic operators, for loops, and nested loops.
  • Manipulate characters and use String methods and the StringBuffer class.
  • Declare, initialize an array, declare and create an array of objects, and search an array.
  • Define event driven programming and handle events with Swing components.
  • Implement inheritance and extend classes, override superclass methods, and use information hiding and protection.
  • Use the JFrame and JPanel class, use the Swing event listeners and Swing components.
  • Throw and catch exceptions, specify and handle exceptions, and trace and create your own exceptions.
  • Use the File class and streams; write to and read from a file.
