  1. A little cup of Java-coffee CS404: CAI Class Presentation_01 By: Leo Sep, 2002

  2. Today’s session • Part-1) Java overview (5mins) • What java is • Java features • Java’s cross-platform • Part-2) two simple and typical java programs • A stand-lone java and its running (5mins) • A applet and its running (5mins) • Part-3) how to learn java by yourself (5mins) • 3 stages • resources

  3. Part-one • Java overview

  4. What Java is • Java is an “easy” programming language, • just a tool like C++, VB, …and English. Somehow a language tool itself is not so complex. • Java works for internet project(mainly), and apply “3-tired architecture”, coding on the server-side • So besides Java language knowledge, we need to learn lots of thing about telecommunication on WEB, to finish a real-time project.

  5. What Java is(continue) • Java applies Object-Oriented Tech. • Java is not so difficulty, though OOP is. A java expert must be an OOP expert. • Java is slower than C++ ( 3-5 times), Java’s database function is slower than VB. • Java is very portable: cross-platform

  6. Java’s Features • Simple Java omits many rarely used, poorly understood, confusing features of C++. Say : No Pointer! No dynamic delete. • Object Oriented Object –oriented design is a technology that focuses design on the data (object) and on the interfaces to it. Let’s say, everything is an object, everything will become a class in Java. Every java program, in top- level view, is classes.

  7. Java’s Features(continue) • Distributed Basically, Java is for Net-Work application, for WEB project. Java can open and access “objects” across the Net via URLs (Uniform Resource Locator)----eg. “http//:gamut.neiu.edu/~ylei/home.html”, with the same ease as when accessing a local file system

  8. Java’s Features(continue) • Robust The single biggest difference between Java and C/C++ is that Java has “a inner safe pointer-model”, therefore it eliminates the possibility of overwriting memory and corrupting data, so programmers feel very safe in coding.

  9. Java’s Features(continue) • GUI [Java-Swing] For some reason, Sun believe their java-swing is very important, so they always put it in their certificate-tests. • Multi-threaded • Secure [ Exception handling ] • Dynamic [ for Server-side coding]

  10. Java’s cross-platform • Interpreted Execute: cross-platform why: For cross-platform purpose. Once coding, run anywhere. The Java interpreter ( java.exe and its javaVirtualMachine) can execute compiled Java-byte-codes(Xxx.class) directly on any machine to which the interpreter has been ported. How: ( eg. Dos command line style) - Edit source code “demo.java” , by notepad/or other IDE tools - Compile ( javac.exe ) “demo.java”javac Demo.java Java byte codes, namely, Demo.class - Execute (Interpreted Execute) java Demo • Speed issue AND new solutions: java is slower than c++ in running. however, by now, there are some new technology of Java compiler, such as “Just-in-time”, and “HotSpot adaptive Compiler”. They make java very faster than before.

  11. Ps: Compiler and Interpreters: Run in Physical CPU • Compilers use the traditional compile/link/run strategy. Examples: C, C++, ML. • source [complie] native-files [link] nativeprogram [run] • demo.c --- obj - demo.exe --Intel cpu • Demoh.h • Interpretersexecute the source code directly. Examples: BASIC, Perl, TCL/Tk, ML. • source [load] [interpret run] • demo.perl - source-program  - Intel cpu • data

  12. Java: Run in Virtual Cpu:cross-platfrom Demo.java Compile Demo.class link xxx.class Source-code “javac” byte-code files bytecode program interpretedly run on VM |-- Intel CPU (virtual CPU: JSDK ) |-- … CPU |-- Apple CPU

  13. Part-2 2 samples • How many kinds of java programs ? • Demo-1: Stand-lone sample • Demo-2: an Applet sample

  14. How many kinds of Java Programs? • Un-network app.: (1)Standalone Java program (today) • Network app:non-standalone Java program Internet: (2)Applet , (today) (3)servlet (4)JavaBean classes Intranet: (5)EJB ( EnterpriseJavaBean ), (6)RMI, etc

  15. Standalone Java Program • The main() method publicstaticvoid main(String args[]){ ... } public--- the interpreter can call it static ----It is a static method belonging to the class void -----It does not return a value String----It always has an array of String objects as its formal parameter. the array contains any arguments passed to the program on the command line the source file’s name must match the class name which main method is in

  16. 1 // Fig. 2.1: Welcome1.java 2 // A first program in Java 3 4 public class Welcome1 { 5 public static void main( String args[] ) 6 { 7 System.out.println( "Welcome to Java Programming!" ); 8 } 9 } Java program Program Output Welcome to Java Programming!

  17. 1 // Fig. 2.1: Welcome1.java 2 // A first program in Java 3 4 public class Welcome1 { 5 public static void main( String args[] ) 6 { 7 System.out.println( "Welcome to Java Programming!" ); 8 } 9 } Java program Program Output

  18. A Simple GUI Program: Printing a Line of Text • Display • Most Java applications use windows or a dialog box • We have used command window • Class JOptionPane allows us to use dialog boxes • Packages • Set of predefined classes for us to use • Groups of related classes called packages • Group of all packages known as Java class library or Java applications programming interface (Java API) • JOptionPane is in the javax.swing package • Package has classes for using Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs)

  19. 1 // Fig. 2.6: Welcome4.java 2 // Printing multiple lines in a dialog box 3 import javax.swing.JOptionPane; // import class JOptionPane 4 5 public class Welcome4 { 6 public static void main( String args[] ) 7 { 8 JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( 9 null, "Welcome\nto\nJava\nProgramming!" ); 10 11 System.exit( 0 ); // terminate the program 12 } 13 }

  20. Packages • Like “namespace” in C++ • How to use: • C++: using namespace xxx • Java: import xxx, or import xxx.xx

  21. 1 <html> 2 <applet code="WelcomeApplet.class" width=300 height=30> 3 </applet> 4 </html> A Simple Java Applet: Drawing a String • appletviewer only understands <applet> tags • Ignores everything else • Minimal browser • Executing the applet • appletviewer WelcomeApplet.html • Perform in directory containing .class file

  22. 1 <html> import allows us to use predefined classes (allowing us to use applets and graphics, in this case). 2 <applet code="WelcomeApplet.class" width=300 height=30> 1 // Fig. 3.6: WelcomeApplet.java 3 </applet> 2 // A first applet in Java 4 </html> extends allows us to inherit the capabilities of class JApplet. 3import javax.swing.JApplet; // import class JApplet 4 import java.awt.Graphics; // import class Graphics Method paint is guaranteed to be called in all applets. Its first line must be defined as above. 5 6public class WelcomeApplet extends JApplet { 7 public void paint( Graphics g ) 8 { 9 g.drawString( "Welcome to Java Programming!", 25, 25 ); 10 } 11 }

  23. 1 // Fig. 3.8: WelcomeApplet2.java 1 <html> 2 // Displaying multiple strings 2 <applet code="WelcomeApplet2.class" width=300 height=45> 3 import javax.swing.JApplet; // import class JApplet 3 </applet> 4 import java.awt.Graphics; // import class Graphics 4 </html> 5 6 public class WelcomeApplet2 extends JApplet { The two drawString statements simulate a newline. In fact, the concept of lines of text does not exist when drawing strings. 7 public void paint( Graphics g ) 8 { 9 g.drawString( "Welcome to", 25, 25 ); 10 g.drawString( "Java Programming!", 25, 40 ); 11 } 12 }

  24. 1 // Displaying text and lines 1 <html> 2 import javax.swing.JApplet; // import class JApplet 2 <applet code="WelcomeLines.class" width=300 height=40> 3 import java.awt.Graphics; // import class Graphics 3 </applet> 4 4 </html> 5 public class WelcomeLines extends JApplet { 6 public void paint( Graphics g ) Draw horizontal lines with drawLine (endpoints have same y coordinate). 7 { 8 g.drawLine( 15, 10, 210, 10 ); 9 g.drawLine( 15, 30, 210, 30 ); 10 g.drawString( "Welcome to Java Programming!", 25, 25 ); 11 } 12 }

  25. Part-3 • How to learn Java by ourself

  26. 3 stages • S-1: basic • Contents: language grammars + GUI (swings and event-driven) Applets • 2-4 weeks • S-2: mid-level projects • Contents: • Exception Handling • Threads • Streams • Network • 4-8 weeks

  27. 3 Stages(cont’d) S-3: Advanced projects contents: JavaBeans RMI Servlets and JSP EJB… many topics time: years , just do projects with Java

  28. Self-training Resources:in Stage-1 and Stage-2 • Sun’s free JSDK. Download and install it. • By the way, many books give us a free CD of JSDK. • Visit http://orion.neiu.edu/~ncaftori/ • Online books <<Thinking in Java>>, it has many translated version, Japanese, Chinese, etc. • Sun’s web training • Other books: • Sun’s <<core java>>, it’s the base of Sun’s certificate-tests. • <<Java:How to program>>, html style, friendly • Search in http://deitel.com, a lots of sample codes

  29. IDE’s: search Sun’s web:sun.java.com • Jbuilder • Visual Age • Sun Forte • Visual Café • J++
