This unit introduces the language structures and techniques needed to write well-structured programs in the object-oriented paradigm using the Java programming language.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
- interpret the behaviour of simple Java programs;
- implement Java classes from specifications;
- understand and apply object-oriented design principles of information hiding and program by contract;
- make effective use of software development tools to write, test, debug, and document Java programs;
- use a software engineering process to develop small Java programs;
- critique the quality of Java programs using criteria such as readability, encapsulation, cohesion, and coupling.
