Solve real world problems with Java using multiple classes. Learn how to create programming solutions that scale using Java interfaces. Recognize that software engineering is more than writing code - it also involves logical thinking and design. By the end of this course you will have written a program that analyzes and sorts earthquake data, and developed a predictive text generator.

After completing this Java Programming - Principles of Software Design Course offered by Coursera in partnership with Duke University, you will be able to:

  • Use sorting appropriately in solving problems;
  • Develop classes that implement the Comparable interface;
  • Use timing data to analyze empirical performance;
  • Break problems into multiple classes, each with their own methods;
  • Determine if a class from the Java API can be used in solving a particular problem;
  • Implement programming solutions using multiple approaches and recognize tradeoffs;
  • Use object-oriented concepts including interfaces and abstract classes when developing programs;
  • Appropriately hide implementation decisions so they are not visible in public methods; and
  • Recognize the limitations of algorithms and Java programs in solving problems.
  • Recognize standard Java classes and idioms including exception-handling, static methods, java.net, and java.io packages.
