The professional programmer’s Deitel® video guide to Java™ SE 7 and SE 8 development with the powerful Java™ platform

Written for programmers with a background in high-level language programming, this LiveLesson applies the Deitel signature live-code approach to teaching programming and explores the Java™ language and Java™ APIs in depth. The LiveLesson presents¿concepts in the context of fully tested programs, not code fragments. The LiveLesson features hundreds of complete Java™ programs with thousands of lines of proven Java™ code, and hundreds of tips that will help you build robust applications.

NOTE this LiveLesson is one in a series of four:

  • Java Fundamentals LiveLessons Part I
  • Java Fundamentals LiveLessons Part III
  • Java Fundamentals LiveLessons Part IV

Skill Level

What you Will Learn
This LiveLesson picks up where Java Fundamentals LiveLesson Part I leaves off. Begin with a deep dive into Java classes and objects, then proceed into Deitel's classic treatment of two fundamental OOP concepts: Inheritance and Polymorphism. Next comes exception handling and GUI/Graphics in Java. You finish with two expert lessons that cover strings, characters, files and streams in Java.

Who should take this course?
Programmers experienced in a high-level programming language and interested in building industrial-strength applications in Java and who have mastered the material in Java Fundamentals LiveLessons Part I.

Course requirements
Familiarity with any high-level programming language, including C, C++, C#, JavaScript, etc...
