This units builds on the object-oriented programming features learned in pre-requisite units by looking at advanced object-oriented concepts and their application in a modern API. By learning a modern API students will learn how to apply the concepts as well as understanding their technical makeup.
- Inheritance and polymorphism
- Abstract classes and interfaces
- Collections and data structures
- JavaFX as a example API using Java features
- Parallel programming
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.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||use classes, inheritance and polymorphism|
|2||use abstract classes and interfaces to build inheritance hierarchies and polymorphic code|
|3||use generics as implemented in a data structure/collection framework|
|4||interpret and apply advanced object-oriented language features as used in a complex modern API|
|5||use parallel programming features as provided by a modern object-oriented language|
