Course Description

Programming in Java is a comprehensive course designed to provide students with a solid foundation in programming with Java. Java is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, and it is used to build everything from simple mobile applications to complex enterprise systems. This course will cover the basics of Java programming, including data types, control structures, and object-oriented programming concepts. The course begins with an introduction to Java and its history, followed by an overview of the Java development environment. Students will learn how to set up and configure their development environment, including how to download and install Java, and how to use an integrated development environment (IDE) to write, debug, and test Java programs. The course then moves on to cover the fundamentals of Java programming, including variables, data types, operators, control structures, and methods. Students will learn how to write simple Java programs, including basic console applications and graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Next, the course delves deeper into object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts, such as classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism, and interfaces. Students will learn how to write object-oriented programs in Java, including how to design and implement classes and how to use object-oriented programming techniques to solve complex problems. The course also covers more advanced Java topics, such as exception handling, input/output (I/O), and multithreading. Students will learn how to handle exceptions in Java programs, how to read and write data to files, and how to create and manage multiple threads of execution. Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to practice their programming skills by completing a series of programming assignments and projects. These assignments and projects will challenge students to apply the concepts and techniques they have learned in the course to real-world programming problems. By the end of this course, students will have a solid understanding and will be able to write Java programs with confidence. They will also be well-prepared to continue their study of Java programming or to apply their skills in a variety of software development roles. Author: Prof. Debasis Samanta (NPTEL)
