In CS4A Intro Java for Computer Science - Offered Every Fall and Spring
Course covers the fundamentals of Java Programming, Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), exception handling, file I/O, recursion and generics. See Schedule.
In CS4B Java Web Programming - Offered Every Spring
In first half of CS4B Java Web programming we cover OOP, HTML Web pages, Java Applets and GUI Programming (Swing/AWT). In the second half we cover: threads, network programming, database (SQL - JDBC), Server Side Web Programming (J2EE/Glassfish), Server-side Web Scripting JSP/Beans, Java Web Frameworks and MVC Design Patterns.

Structured Query Language (SQL) has become the standard for communicating to a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). RDBMS have become the defacto standard for organizing data. MySQL is a fast growing RDMBS and also has a library that supports sending SQL commands to its database using the PHP scripting language. Recently Sun Microsystems has purchases MySQL. This will help expand the roll of MySQL beyond a popular Web Database system, into a more mainstream fortune 500 database. CSB4 uses the same MySQL RDBMS as cim205a. More Specifically CIM205A Covers...

  • Basic SQL Syntax
  • Basic SQL Commands and Fundamentals
  • Creating Relational Databases
  • Advance Query Creation
  • MySQL local client interfaces and Web-based tools
CS1D Data Structures in Java

Both CS4B adn CS1D are offered every Spring. CS1D covers the middle data structure chapters in the Liang Java Book, CS4A beginning chapters, CS4B later chapters, more specifically...

  • CIM7A Chapters 1-7
  • CS4A Chapters 1-12, 18-21
  • CS1D Chapters 22-28 and data structure topics
  • CS4B Chapters subset of: 8, 13-17, 29-40
  • See schedule for more details

CS1D covers basic concepts of data structures and related algorithms. The abstract data types of lists, stacks, queues, strings, binary and general trees, multidimensional and sparse arrays, and graphs will be discussed and implemented using a contemporary programming language. Recursion, searching, and sorting will also be examined.
