Advanced Java Programming
Understand advanced concepts of Java programming, such as generic, functional and concurrent programming.
Understand the principles of dynamic program analysis, profiling, and instrumentation on the Java Virtual Machine.
This course teaches concepts of object-oriented, functional, and concurrent programming that help create complex software systems that are extensible and scalable. It also introduces advanced profiling and program-analysis techniques for identifying performance bottlenecks in such systems and for optimizing them. These concepts are explained in the context of the Java programming language and Java Virtual Machine.
Lectures, tutorials, and exercises on the course topics.
The examination consists of periodic assignments, a project, and a final exam.
