CS 501 Introduction to JAVA Programming

An introduction to the Java programming language for those students who have little or no programming background. It is intended as an elective for the Master of Science in Information Systems to be taken near the end of the program. Basic topics considered will be programs and program structure in general and Java syntax, data types, flow of control, classes, methods and objects, arrays, exception handling, and recursion. In addition, the use of Java in enterprise-wide computing and distributed systems will be introduced by considering APIs in general, and the ones specific to JDBC and the Java security features in particular.


This is a Pathways Program Bridge Course. Students in the traditional Computer Science Master's Program (not the Pathways Program) can only take this course in their first semester.
