Synopsis for Java 15 Swing with Eclipse 2020-09 training course
You do wonder why the bods at Java HQ called the second version of their Java GUI front end "Swing", granted the original was called AWT (Abstract Window Toolkit) so any progress from there was
always going to be upwards !! Perhaps they were inspired by this homage to IT Projects ...
But there are so many cool items in a playground such as a sand pit, climbing frame, slide etc and of course our personal favourite the roundabout, some of us are old enough to remember the
Magic Roundabout with Dougal, Zebedee and others of course, is it just us or was Dylan a little spaced out for a children's character ??
Not to be confused with the Magic Roundabout in Swindon which is an entirely different beast, definitely not for children !!
At one time the official name for Java 1.2 was itself 'playground' so you can see where their thoughts were going.
Back to Java Swing … Swing is a front end set of GUI tools which allows the Developer to produce commercial grade interfaces for Users to primarily input and extract data, it works exceedingly well
with a Java middleware layer with either an Oracle or MySQL database providing all the information for display.
Amongst the tools available, the Developer can of course display input fields, radio buttons, check boxes and a whole host of other items all encased in a JFrame which copies the
standard Windows Look and Feel and if that’s not enough LAFs can be customised or downloaded from the web to make the product unique.
This course is ideally suited to either Developers who have already had our Java Programming training course or have a number of months Java coding experience in other applications, because
almost immediately the course launches into using Java Object Orientated Programming techniques and does so all through the five days of the course.
This version of the course is a not the latest version, if you have landed here accidentally please click on the advert above and that will take you to our latest Java courses, we present two different courses,
the Java Swing course and the aforementioned Java Programming course, both are available as on-site courses and the latest versions of Java are available as public training courses throughout the
UK and Ireland and are scheduled regularly at each location.
This course is given using the Eclipse software, we recommend using this when developing with Java as its superior error handling and code completion software which is almost as good as our Training Consultants.
The Java Swing course is for experienced Java Developers or Delegates who have already attended our five day Java Programming course.
Java Swing is the graphical user interface which can be used
to provide front end modules for Users to input data etc …
