Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Java Examples Global Knowledge Egypt

In this instructor-led course, students learn how to adopt an object-oriented (OO) approach to software development. The course is designed for experienced developers coming to Java from non object-oriented languages such as COBOL, RPG, or C. It is also appropriate for those who are new to programming.

Through a combination of instructor-led lectures and hands-on exercises, students take a case study through the stages of object-oriented requirements gathering, analysis, and design using the Unified Modeling Language (UML). Students learn how the Java language supports object-oriented programming, and how object-oriented designs can be implemented in Java. Numerous hands-on exercises and demonstrations provide practical experience with OO development from analysis and design to implementation.

This course includes topics such as interpreting UML diagrams, recognizing Java constructs that enable object-orientation, and how design patterns can improve the implementation of applications. The course also provides an overview of different software development methodologies that can be applied to the development of object-oriented applications.

This course prepares students for further training in the Java programming language by providing a sound foundation in OO principles.

Target Audience:

This basic course is designed for architects, designers, analysts, developers, testers, administrators, managers, and project managers who will use object-oriented technology to build applications.


  • State the advantages of an object-oriented approach to software development
  • Describe essential object-oriented concepts and terminology
  • Perform OO requirements gathering, analysis, and design
  • Describe the role of Unified Modeling Language (UML) in object-oriented analysis and design
  • Read the most commonly used types of UML diagrams
  • Create UML use case, class, and sequence diagrams
  • Describe the impact of designing an application that can accommodate changes and the approaches to support such designs
  • Create Java classes that implement an object-oriented design
  • Apply Java language constructs that enable and enforce OO-related concepts such as data encapsulation, strict typing and type conversion, inheritance, and polymorphism
  • Explain how design patterns can improve the implementation of OO designs
  • Describe the incremental and iterative process for developing applications using object technology and how it differs from traditional approaches (for example, waterfall) to application development
  • Compare the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and Agile approach as software development methodologies
