J2SE 5.0 Language Features
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
To introduce experienced developers to the language-specific improvements and changes in Java 5.0, the purpose of which is to make Java more developer-friendly and facilitate the writing of bug-free code
Existing developers who wish to gain a quick handle on the new features and enhancements that are introduced in Java 5.0(codenamed “Tiger”)
Proficency in a previous version of the Java language – preferably Java 1.4; failing this, a strong understanding of OO programming techniques and development experience in an OO language
J2SE 5.0 Language Features associate the new features provided by J2SE 5.0 with their corresponding functionality, and identify how these features have changed the Java Collections Framework and API. identify the code required to perform automatic conversions between primitive and wrapper types, and implement a variable-length argument list in J2SE 5.0. perform iteration using the new for loop, and import static contstants and methods into a source file. specify the code required to create, iterate over, and switch on type safe enums in J2SE 5.0. implement a class that uses the new language-based constructs in J2SE 5.0. identify the advantages and disadvantages of using generics in code, and outline how generics are used to make raw code type safe. specify the generic, type safe version of a given piece of legacy code. specify the code involved in building a generic class for a given scenario. specify the code involved in declaring a generic subclass, testing generic object types, and casting a generic object. convert an application’s legacy code into a generic, type safe equivalent, and create a generic class.
