Unit aim

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.

Unit content

  1. Classes
  2. Inheritance and polymorphism
  3. Abstract classes and interfaces
  4. Generics
  5. Collections and data structures
  6. JavaFX as a example API using Java features
  7. Parallel programming

Learning outcomes

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.
