Continues with the principles of object-oriented programming using a standard programming language and an intermediate development environment. This unit works with more extensive structures of objects including collections of objects and arrays. Students are given a solid introduction to libraries and interfaces, the Java standard library, helper classes and documentation.
Review of Objects and Classes
Interaction of objects
Collections and Lists
Iterations over collections
Library classes and documentation
Creating custom classes
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
