Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

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.

COURSE DETAILS:

This course introduces students to the concept of object-oriented design (OOD) through the Java programming language, with an emphasis on utilizing the features offered by the OOD concept. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with concepts of OOD and be able to apply this understanding to other languages besides Java. Students will also gain valuable knowledge and experience in writing and documenting their code in a professional manner. By the end of this course students should be able to: 1)Explain and justify the benefits and drawbacks of object-oriented design, 2)Design and write code that employs useful design patterns, and 3)Write and maintain Java programs. *As of 26 May, 2021, the university has announced its plan for approximately 70-80% of teaching in person in Fall 2021. It has also stated that: "not all courses will be delivered in person. The fall will be a transitional term. Deans, supported by the work of chairs and directors, will make final decisions about whether courses will be taught remotely or in person." Please continue to check our course outline for further information. Should this course be taught remotely, students must have access to a computer with internet access, allowing the use of a conferencing system such as Zoom or BB Collaborate Ultra. Some components of the course will require synchronous (real-time) participation during the scheduled lecture and/or exam times. Visual proctoring may be required, subject to university approval.

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

Topics

  • 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 or web servers, and use of threads.
  • Software development tools, such as advanced IDE features, build tools, debuggers, and JavaDoc.

Grading

NOTES:

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).

Registrar Notes:

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 2021

Teaching at SFU in fall 2021 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with approximately 70 to 80 per cent of classes in person/on campus, with safety plans in place.  Whether your course will be in-person or through remote methods will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes.  You will also know at enrollment whether remote course components will be “live” (synchronous) or at your own pace (asynchronous).

Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required.  You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware 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.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the fall 2021 term.
