This highly acclaimed Hands-On Java programming training course provides delegates who prefer a fast track learning route with intensive practical tuition using Sun’s Java Development Kit (JDK). Coverage of the Java language will focus on the similarities and differences from C++ (some subtle and some not). The topics covered will help prepare delegates for certification tests and should prove invaluable for those planning to build commercial Java applets and applications. Available as a public or closed course at our London training centre, or can be tailored to your team's requirements and delivered onsite as a bespoke, customised training course.
