In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to create a graphical user interface for a school registry using Java Window Builder. You will be able to identify and apply the four principles of object-oriented programming, which are encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism and abstraction, to almost any programming language. Throughout the project, you will be able to identify encapsulation and how to use it, comprehend and apply inheritance, use the different forms of polymorphism and finally, apply and use abstraction, in order to create our GUI. By learning Object Oriented Programming, you will be able to create your own Java projects using Eclipse, customized to fit your needs. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Set up Java environment.

  2. Apply Encapsulation by using access modifier and generating their accessors. 

  3. Allow a class to adopt other classes attributes and methods by using Inheritance.

  4. Identify and use the two forms of polymorphism, overriding and overloading.

  5. Create and use abstract classes, abstract methods and interfaces. 

  6. Create an application window using Java Window Builder and create a customized frame for your Graphical User Interface.

  7. Create a panel that the user could enter his input in.

  8. Integrate your components with your code by saving user data, allowing buttons to perform specific actions and inserting into a table.
