Java Training Course/Example Programs

Jump to: navigation, search

During the training course we developped about 60 Java example programs which use the Java language features to be learned. These programs can all be obtained from the Git repository for the training course by the command:

git clone

Start with a greeting

  • HelloWorld - one-liner: output a greeting

Arguments, assignment, elementary String and arithmetic operations

  • StringAdd - concatenate argument strings 4 times and print them out
  • IntAdd - add 4 integers 4 times and print them
    • IntMultiply - multiply 4 integers 4 times and print the product
    • LongMultiply - multiply 4 long numbers

Loops (while, for) and conditions (if), arrays ([])

  • PowersOf2 - print the powers of 2
    • PowersOf2Check - check for increasing sequence
    • PowersOf2Backwards - print sequence backwards
    • PowersOf2Array - print sequence from an array

Sequences of conditions with switch, if - then - else if ...

  • Selamat - print a greeting depending on the hour
    • SelamatSwitch - same with switch ... case ... default
  • Number10 - print the numbers 1..10
    • Number10Method - print the numbers using a class method
  • Month - print the indonese name of a month
  • Weekday - print the indonese name of a weekday

Sequences of words

  • Word1 - print all words with 1 letter
    • Word2 - print all words with 2 letters by 2 nested loops
    • Word3 - print all words with 3 letters
  • Word3Cond1 - print words with 3 letters and vowel/consonant conditions, first version
    • Word3Cond2 - same, using a method, 2nd version
    • Word3Cond3 - same, output on a single line, 3rd version

Filtering files

A filter program reads a file, modifies all lines somehow, and writes them to another file.

  • Filter1 - read a file and replace the vowels in each line
  • FilterNumber - read a file and replace all digits by their indonese number words
  • FilterMulti3 - read the modified output of Word3Cond3 and colorize the known words

  • PlayNim - play the Nim game with some number of sticks to be taken
    • PlayNimState - improve clarity of program logic by using a Discrete Finite State Automaton (DFSA)
    • PlayNimSwing, AboutPlayNim GUI for the Nim game
  • ChessGame, ChessPlayer, ChessField, ChessPiece - interconnected set of classes for the display of a chess game using Unicode characters for the pieces

File Handling and Collections

  • HexDump - hexadecimal dump of a file, maybe binary
  • FilterURL - filter a file read from an URL (http://..., ftp://..., file://...)
