Module summary
Module name:
Internal number:
Pre-requisites with regard to content: Computer Science 1
Pre-requisites according to the examination regulations:

The module is based on module "Informatik 1”. The students will learn to develop a computer science project using object oriented techniques in Java. They become acquainted with advanced analysis, design and realization competences as well as abstract data types and their implementation by data structures and algorithms. The students will learn to choose an appropriate data type depending on the application area and the given runtime conditions. Furthermore they will be familiar with graphical user interfaces and object-based programming with JavaScript.

This lecture consists of four parts. The first one introduces basic concepts of object
oriented programming on the basis of the programming language Java. The main issues are among other things: Language elements of Java, data abstraction and encapsulation, inheritance, polymormism, generic programming, error handling an runtime typ information. Based on these techniques an introduction in modeling of class diagrams with UML is made. Additional practical exercises with a standard IDE adeepen the knowledge. The second part introduces the development of mobile Apps with graphical user interfaces for Android. The third part of the lecture deals with some important data structures like lists, hashtables, tree and graphs and introduces basic algorithms to operate on them. The forth part introduces the modularization of applications with Spring.
