With over 200 videos and 20 hours of content, this online Java training course is designed to provide a solid foundation in Java programming and Eclipse for programmers who are already proficient in another language. Besides learning the basic structure and syntax of the language, you will also learn object-oriented principles and how they are applied in Java applications. In addition, this training course covers more advanced features of the language such as abstract classes, interfaces, generics, packages, and exception handling. Finally, you will learn two foundational API libraries: I/O streams and collections. This online training course is current to Java 7 and uses the Eclipse IDE.
