About the course
Build and maintain large applications easily with the power of modular programming concepts in Java 9.
What You'll Learn
- Modularize your multi-package project and external dependencies to solve common problems
- Use inner classes to standardize large and complex Java applications
- Learn to write concurrent code in a better way and deploy your Java 9 code
- Utilize the brand new modular system to write modular code
- Parse a CSV file using the Apache commons library
- Easily debug applications using unified JVM logging
- Prior working knowledge of Java will be useful
To build a standardized interface and enable the modules to communicate you need to partition your environment of software constructs into distinct modules to help minimize coupling, optimize application development, and reduce system complexity.
Why Do We Need Modularity?
To avoid small devices running the full JDK unnecessarily. Java 9 solved this by having the Jlink tool with the modularity concept.
To remove the flaws in encapsulation. In Java 9, Public is no longer visible unless it is exported in module-info.java. It checks dependencies — both the compile time and runtime. Even with reflection, we cannot access when it is not exported.
To make our implementation hidden and expose it through interface.
Improve security and maintainability.
This comprehensive 2-in-1 course will help you understand the basic concepts of Modular Programming to build enterprise applications with Java. You’ll get up-and-running with Java 9 more quickly. You’ll start implementing Modular Programming easily will a step by step approach. You’ll start writing modular Java code and use JDK to build a project jigsaw..
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Learning Java 9 – Modular Programming, covers the power of modular programming to build applications with Java Project Jigsaw! The course starts by diving deep into advanced Object Oriented concepts like inner classes, object composition, encapsulation, and polymorphism which will be demonstrated through a simple extension to a vehicle modeling example. You’ll then learn how to correctly manage external dependencies in Java with the use of Maven.
The second course, Java 9 New Features Deep Dive, covers new modular programming concept in Java 9 and how it will affect you and your clients ahead of time. The primary motivator for this video is to see it as a preparatory course for what’s to come in Java 9. You’ll emphasize on the impact, new features will have on development, and of course get the viewer actually writing out their own Java 9 code examples too. You’ll start up with the setting up of Java 9 and learn the modularization concepts and then proceed to deployment.
By the end of this training program you’ll explore the power of modular programming and build applications with Java Project Jigsaw!
