COURSE OVERVIEW

This intensive, hands-on course explores advanced Java 5.0 Standard Edition language features and packages. Students will learn to parse XML documents using the JAXP API. Multi-threaded applications will be covered in detail including concepts such as deadlocks and race conditions. Students will also learn how to utilize more advanced I/O capabilities with object serialization and low-level file I/O with the java.nio package. Client/server applications will be written utilizing both the java.net and java.rmi packages. Additional topics on JNI, performance tuning, and advanced RMI are included as appendices for further study.
