Pre-requisites

PROG1001 - Programming I

Unit aim

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.  

Unit content

Review of Objects and Classes
Programming paradigms
Class definitions
Interaction of objects
Collections and Lists
Iterations over collections
Library classes and documentation
Designing classes
Creating custom classes
Exception handing

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.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 modify and expand short object-oriented programs that use standard conditional and iterative control structures and methods
2 design, implement, test, and debug simple programs in an object-oriented programming language
3 describe how the class mechanism supports encapsulation and information hiding
4 describe the relationship between the static structure of the class and the dynamic structure of the instances of the class
5 utilise iterators to access the elements of a container
6 describe how constructors and destructors relate to the life of an object.
