Course Description

The course "Advanced Software Construction in Java" is designed to provide students with advanced skills and knowledge in Java programming language. This course is intended for those who already have a basic understanding of Java programming concepts and want to take their skills to the next level. The course covers a range of advanced topics, including design patterns, multi-threading, networking, databases, and more. Students will learn how to use various tools and technologies to build high-quality, robust, and scalable software applications. The course starts with an introduction to design patterns, which are reusable solutions to common programming problems. Students will learn how to apply design patterns in their Java code to improve its efficiency, maintainability, and scalability. The course then covers multi-threading, which is the process of executing multiple threads concurrently. Students will learn how to use Java's built-in concurrency mechanisms, such as threads and locks, to develop multi-threaded applications. Next, the course covers networking, which is the process of connecting multiple computers and devices. Students will learn how to use Java's network programming capabilities to develop distributed applications. The course also covers databases, which are an essential part of modern software applications. Students will learn how to use Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) to connect to and interact with relational databases. Finally, the course covers testing, debugging, and performance tuning, which are critical skills for any software developer. Students will learn how to use various tools and techniques to test their Java code, debug errors, and optimize its performance. Throughout the course "Advanced Software Construction in Java", students will have the opportunity to work on several projects that will allow them to apply their newly acquired skills in real-world scenarios. By the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of advanced Java programming concepts and will be able to develop high-quality software applications using Java.
