Course Objective:Students exit the seminar fluent in the not just the concepts and facilities if OOP, but also the reasons why OOP is a superior set of methods for developing large, complex business systems.

Course Description Summary: In depth overview of OOP technologies relevant to Information Technology professionals, including all the important major topics: object-oriented philosophy of design, encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, information hiding, business advantages, weaknesses and pitfalls, etc

The Outline

  1. Overview of OOP Development
    1. Overview of Object Oriented Programming
    2. Advantage: Increasing Developer Productivity
    3. Meeting Product Demand
      1. Most Projects Fail- Why?
        1. Poor Planning
        2. Poor Interface Design
        3. Brittle Non-Encapsulated Modules
    4. Object Oriented Languages and Platforms
      1. Java
      2. .NET Languages
      3. Other

  2. Philosophy and Advantages of the OOP Approach
    1. Design based on real-world models, not ‘ones and zeroes’
      1. Design to model real world, not the computer
    2. Programmable objects as well-defined containers: of data (characteristics) and process (actions) and key lifecycle events
    3. Objects are easy to communicate about to end-users
      1. Systems modeling reality, not the other way around
    4. Component Based Architecture is REUSEABLE
      1. Software ‘integrated circuits’
      2. Benefits of reuse
        1. Quick testing
    5. Parallel Development
      1. Quick Development
    6. Easier Testing
      1. Encapsulated componentized systems are easier to integration test

  3. OOP Core Concepts
    1. Encapsulation- getting everything into one container
      1. Group Exercise: Organizing a mess
    2. Inheritance- the ability to derive new programs from existing, debugged older programs
    3. Polymorphism- one action, many implementations

  4. Disadvantages of OOP
    1. OOP is no longer optional. Many are unprepared for the switch
      1. Java is 100% OOP
      2. .NET is 100% OOP
        1. Many will be left behind
    2. Design is tricky
      1. Your decisions effect performance of system
        1. Logical vs. Physical Design
      2. Group Exercise: Designing a Business Object
    3. Design is NECESSARY
      1. OOP approach requires a commitment to planning and design
    4. Skills are Needed
      1. Design Skills
        1. Business Knowledge
        2. UML
      2. Programming Skills
      3. Thinking in Objects is Required
      4. Training in Tools and Techniques
    5. Maintenance People Must also ‘get it’
      1. Everyone must have solid OOP skills
    6. Platforms assume a total OOP orientation
      1. Attempting ‘procedural’ programming in an OOP platform will fail and have to be thrown out

  5. UML: Designing Object Oriented Systems
    1. Writing Design Documentation
      1. Differs from ‘program documentation’
      2. Happens UP FRONT
    2. Use Cases
    3. Class Diagrams
    4. Sequence Diagrams
    5. Flow Charts
    6. Design Patterns Overview
    7. UML Tools: Visio, Rational XDE

  6. Tools for Implementing OOP Features: Choose Java or .NET Platforms
    1. Overview of Java OOP
    2. Overview of .NET OOP
    3. Inheritance, Interfaces, Methods, Etc
    4. Seeing the code—how it works

  7. Example1: OOP Advantages, Data Access with JDBC or ADO
    1. The Database as a set of Objects
    2. Understanding the Framework Class Library
    3. Designing and creating Reusable components: inheritance, polymorphism
    4. Overview of Data Access options: ADO.NET
    5. Fitting XML into your application
    6. Understanding Multi-Threaded Applications

  8. Example 2: Classic OOP Principles, Applied: Web Services
    1. Review of Web Services Evolution
    2. Overview of Web Services Architecture
    3. Demystifying the Components making up a Web Service
    4. Discussion on the Future Direction of Web Services

    1. Key OOP Concepts Review
      1. Group Exercise: Quiz
    2. Differences from procedural approach
    3. Advantages and Disadvantages
    4. Current OOP Platforms
    5. UML and Design Issues
    6. Implementation of OOP Systems
    7. Testing OOP Systems
    8. Maintenance in OOP
    9. Next Steps- Unified Modeling Language for Analysis and Design
    10. UML Basics
    11. UML Tools
When the student leaves the course...The student will gain a complete understanding of all the terminology and features of the OOP approach, and be prepared for discussions with others regarding OOP-based systems development. For developers who attend, this course lays the groundwork for more focused study of Java and/or .NET development.
