.profile Consulting Inc. presents:

A One Day Technical Tour of the

Java Programming Language

for Object Oriented Programmers


Java is a new general-purpose, object-oriented programming language developed at Sun Microsystems. Although syntactically similar to C++, Java's type system and execution model place it between C++ and Smalltalk, offering many of the strengths of both languages. Java supports objects and multiple threads, has language semantics that are portable and safe and is appropriate for a wide variety of applications, including embedded and distributed programming. Much of Java's power is in its class library.

This course presents the Java language to a depth that permits detailed evaluation of its suitability for various problem domains. It will present a technical tour of the features listed above. The focus is on Java as a programming language; there is no specific emphasis on writing applets over other applications.

Course Structure

The course is presented as 1 day of lecture with some live demonstration if facilities permit.
