  • Course Java Programming : Content

    The course Java Programming Fundamentals covers the fundamentals of programming in Java based on version 8 of the Java platform. In addition to the fundamentals of Java, the innovations in Java 8 such as lambdas, optionals and the stream API are also covered in the course.

    Java Syntax

    By means of successive exercises in a case study, participants learn to program with the variables, data types, operators and control flow constructions of the Java language.

    Classes and Objects

    The course then discusses object oriented concepts such as class, object, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism. Attention is paid to errors and exception handling and it is discussed how Java software is organized in packages.

    Multiple Threads

    Also the split of a program into different subtasks with threads and the synchronization of these threads is the subject in the course.


    Parameterized types, generics, and their use in the Collection Framework are also part of the course program. Optional modules, if time permits it, are access to databases with JDBC and Java Beans.

    OCA Certification

    This course is a good preparation for the Java 8 OCA , Oracle Certified Associate, exam. In combination with the Advanced Java Programming course this course also prepares for the Java 8 OCP, Oracle Certified Professional, exam.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
