Java Training Overview

Accelebrate's Intermediate Java Programming training course prepares graduates of our Beginning Java Programming class (and those with equivalent expertise) for the next level of Java programming.

This course goes well beyond the basics of Java and OO programming to cover UML, Design Patterns basics, and using composition vs. inheritance. Attendees learn advanced Java topics such as inner classes, the reflection API, and functional programming with lambdas and streams. Finally, students learn how to use useful tools for day-to-day programming such as JUnit, build tools, and logging frameworks.

Location and Pricing

Most Accelebrate courses are delivered as private, customized, on-site training at our clients' locations worldwide for groups of 3 or more attendees and are custom tailored to their specific needs. Please visit our client list to see organizations for whom we have delivered private in-house training. These courses can also be delivered as live, private online classes for groups that are geographically dispersed or wish to save on the instructor's or students' travel expenses. To receive a customized proposal and price quote for private training at your site or online, please contact us.

In addition, some courses are available as live, online classes for individuals. See a schedule of online courses.

Java Training Objectives

All students will:

  • Solidify Java foundational knowledge, including the important contracts of class Object
  • Understand the uses and consequences of inheritance and composition, and reinforce the role of interfaces
  • Reinforce fundamental OO principles such as cohesion, coupling, and polymorphism
  • Use the JUnit testing framework and become fluent in writing assertions to verify correct program behavior
  • Gain familiarity with UML modeling in class diagrams and sequence diagrams
  • Use advanced techniques for object creation, including factories and singletons
  • Use established design patterns for object composition, including Strategy, Decorator, and Facade
  • Write and use generic classes and methods
  • Learn the use cases for inner classes and refactor existing code to use them when appropriate
  • Create and use custom annotations
  • Be familiar with reflection and how to use it
  • Understand the role of functional interfaces introduced in Java
  • Understand lambda expressions and method references, and use them to pass behavior (methods)
  • Use the Stream API to perform complex processing of collections and other input sources
  • Learn the new Date/Time API and use it to solve date-oriented business problems
  • Use Javadoc to write professional-grade API comments for your classes
  • Understand build tools such as Ant and Maven, and how to manage application dependencies
