Læringsmål:After the course the student should be able to:

  • Solve small programming tasks in Java using simple data types, arrays,
    loops, methods, classes, and objects.
  • Implement programs with simple input/output.
  • Implement programs with simple Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs).
  • Use selected class libraries. Therefore, you should be able to characterize the functionality of a Java class based on its documentation.
  • Structure programs using the notions of inheritance, interfaces, method
    signatures, and exceptions.
Fagligt indhold:Please note, that due to technical challenges, changes may occur before the start of the semester (week 35) – this applies to all sections of the course description.
