Java Patterns Course Updated

Our course in Design Patterns Using Java has been updated to Java 7, and has enjoyed some enhancements along the way:

  • We've added a lab to clarify the use of the Decorator pattern.
  • Eclipse support has been brought up to more recent standards, so that just about everything can be built and tested directly in the IDE.
  • We've ported the Human Resources case-study application to the Derby RDBMS, for better portability and integration with other Capstone courses.

This continues our curriculum-wide update for Java 7, following major revisions to all of our Java programming courses. Look for updates to our JDBC and secure-development courses in the near future as well.
