Java Programming with Java SE 6.0: Generics and Annotations

Programmers with an understanding of procedural programming concepts who want to learn Java and object-oriented programming; programmers proficient in another object-oriented programming language who want to move to Java; programmers experienced in the Java language who want to make the upgrade to Java SE 6.

Knowledge of programming principles and experience in procedural programming or scripting languages, such as Visual Basic, C, or JavaScript; understanding of object-oriented languages, such as C++ or C#, is an advantage.

To explain what metadata is and how it can be used to provide annotation source to third-party tools and to outline generics in Java.


Java Programming with Java SE 6.0: Generics and Annotations

  • 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 required to declare a generic subclass, test generic object types, and cast a generic object.
  • convert a given application’s legacy code into a generic type safe equivalent.
  • associate Java’s retention policies and built-in annotations with their corresponding features and functionality.
  • specify the code to annotate an overriding method, a deprecated method, and to suppress compiler warnings.
  • specify the code to declare custom and meta-annotations.
