Service and Application Development for Operating System Android

Course Description

The course is designed to offer students an opportunity to acquire knowledge needed to develop Android applications, and also server side services which will be used by these applications. web projects. Topics and themes covered include: foundations of the Java programming language, object-oriented design in Java, Android platform architecture, graphical user interface, using specific hardware, data access for Android, accessing different services on Internet, developing RESTful web services and accessing them from Android.

General Competencies

Upon completion of the course the student should be able to: employ object-oriented programming principles, use common Java classes and interfaces, apply data structures and streams, use Java logging and exception handling facilities, access databases from Java, use Eclipse integrated development environment, independently develop Android applications, utilize Android GUI components, access specific Android hardware, independently develop distributed Android applications and effectively work in small teams.

Learning Outcomes

  1. develop application in object-orijented programming language Java independently and in team
  2. develop application for device with operating system Android
  3. design and develop service on server
  4. apply network programming in development of Android applications
  5. relate service with database on Android and on server
