Fall 2020 - CMPT 213 D100
Object Oriented Design in Java (3)
Class Number: 6223
Delivery Method: In Person
An introduction to object oriented design using Java. The Java programming language is introduced, with an emphasis on its advanced features. The course covers the building blocks of object oriented design including inheritance, polymorphism, interfaces and abstract classes. A number of object oriented design patterns are presented, such as observer, iterator, and singleton. The course also teaches best-practices in code construction. It includes a basic introduction to programming event driven graphical user interfaces. Students with credit for CMPT 212 cannot take this course for further credit.
Throughout the course, students will learn and use Java to solve interesting problems but no background in Java is expected. The course will cover a number of design patterns which students will use in the assignments. There will be a focus on designing and writing good maintainable code, as such all code submitted will need to conform to a coding standard which will be discussed in class.
- Introduction to Java, including advanced features such as enum, generics, and mutable vs immutable.
- Inheritance, polymorphism, interfaces and abstract classes.
- Introduction to object oriented design (OOD) and some UML diagrams.
- Code construction, best practices and coding standard.
- Basic software design patterns such as iteration, singleton, observers, or template methods.
- Introduction to refactoring.
- Basic introduction to event driven user interface programming, and use of threads.
- Software development tools, such as advanced IDE features, build tools, debuggers, and JavaDoc.
- 35% assignments and project, 20% midterm, 45% final exam. Grading will be confirmed in the first week of class. Students must attain an overall passing grade on the weighted average of exams in the course in order to obtain a clear pass (C- or better).

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
TEACHING AT SFU IN FALL 2020
Teaching at SFU in fall 2020 will be conducted primarily through remote methods. There will be in-person course components in a few exceptional cases where this is fundamental to the educational goals of the course. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-782-3112).
