Most of the course is focused on our "coursepack," which consists of articles students can access via the IEEE Computer Society and ACM digital libraries. Most of the articles come from IEEE Software and the Communications of the ACM.
This course focuses on more advanced topics in object-oriented programming, including project design, planning, and testing using milestones and checklists. Programming topics include text processing (including the StringBuilder and StringTokenizer classes), inheritance, polymorphism, abstract classes, interfaces, generic classes, exception classes, exception throwing and handling, random access files, serialization, and an introduction to some basic data structures, such as collection classes and linked list.
Prerequisite: CSC241 Data Structures and Algorithms
Course addresses Student Outcomes (d), (e), (g) and (h).
