Java Career Program Description
Introduction to RFID Technology
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the technology of tomorrow. RFID is the automatic identification system that is the next wave in technology used by businesses to track goods, payments, and assets across most global industries. It is used from warehouse and inventory management to manufacturing and distribution networks. The use of RFID technology continues to expand into new markets including logistics, counterfeit protection, supply chain management, airport luggage, health care and silent commerce.
New mandates and regulations have laid the infrastructure for RFID, and have had a great impact on over 700,000 companies worldwide. As RFID gains momentum, large amounts of capital are flowing into many diverse sectors in order to facilitate RFID technology becoming more commercially successful. Furthermore, the largest anticipated use of RFID within the next ten years is tracking the movements of consumer product goods from the manufacturer to the point of sale. Today, Wal-Mart, Metro Group, Target and many other retail companies worldwide have established compliance standards requiring their vendors to adopt RFID technology. Military organizations, such as the United States Department of Defense (DOD), have also accelerated the adoption rate of RFID by requiring their suppliers to use RFID technology.
In the KSI RFID Career Program, students will be exposed to the basic concepts and practical applications of RFID as well as to topics that include EPC global protocol standards, the role of commercial RFID middleware, and the manageability of RFID systems. Through the designed course goals, students will also be exposed to various actual working examples to illustrate emerging RFID technology, gaining access to a career in the RFID Network and other related fields.

What is Java Technology?

Java allows you to play online games, chat with people around the world, calculate your mortgage interest, and view images in 3D, just to name a few. It's also integral to the intranet applications and other e-business solutions that are the foundation of corporate computing.

Java software for your computer, or the Java Runtime Environment, is also referred to as the Java Runtime, Runtime Environment, Runtime, JRE, Java Virtual Machine, Virtual Machine, Java VM, JVM, VM, or Java download.

To date, the Java platform has attracted more than 6.5 million software developers. It's used in every major industry segment and has a presence in a wide range of devices, computers, and networks.

Java technology's versatility, efficiency, platform portability, and security make it the ideal technology for network computing. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!

Java powers more than 4.5 billion devices including:

 mobile phones and other handheld devices (source: Ovum)
Smart cards
Set-top boxes, printers, Web cams, games, car navigation systems, lottery terminals, medical devices, parking payment stations, and more.

Java has been tested, refined, extended, and proven by a dedicated community. And numbering more than 6.5 million developers, it's the largest and most active on the planet. With its versatilty, efficiency, and portability, Java has become invaluable to developers by enabling them to:

Write software on one platform and run it on virtually any other platform
Create programs to run within a Web browser and Web services
Develop server-side applications for online forums, stores, polls, HTML forms processing, and more
Combine applications or services using the Java language to create highly customized applications or services
Write powerful and efficient applications for mobile phones, remote processors, low-cost consumer products, and practically any other device with a digital heartbeat

A primary goal of the program is:

Preparation for the Sun Certified Programmer (SCJP) for the Java Standard Edition 6 (Java SE 6.0) Platform, certification exam.

The Sun certification exam provides an ideal entry into an application development or a software project management career using Java technologies. This worldwide credential validates basic knowledge of Object-Oriented Concepts, UML representation of OO concepts, the Java programming language, and general knowledge of Java Platforms and Technologies. Candidates for this exam include: entry level Java programmers, students studying to become Java programmers, project or program managers working with Java technology in the software development industry. |from Sun|

The Java Career Programs all begin with CIS321 Computer Languages (Java), which is the introductory course to programming in Java and provides the necessary basis for working with Java Technology.

CIS323 Java GUI is also a part of the Java Career Program course sequence. This course emphasizes the Java Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Following are course descriptions for the two required Java Career Program Courses:

CIS 321
Computer Languages (Java)

Java, one of the most widely used object-oriented programming (OOP) in recent years, has become the language for new development especially for web-based applications and services. This introductory course covers all the basic concepts of the Java programming language and provides the general knowledge of Java Platforms and technologies. Students taking this course can gain a solid foundation as an entry into application development, a software project management career using Java technologies or the further education.

Lecture Topics
1 Getting Started w/ Java
2 Object-Oriented Programming Concepts
3 Language Basics
4 Object Basics and Simple Data Objects
5 Classes and Inheritance
6 Interfaces and Packages
7 Exception Handling
8 Multithreaded Programming
9 I/O: Reading and Writing
10 Swing GUI

CIS 323
Java Graphical User Interface

A graphical user interface (GUI) is an application that uses the standard Java components GUI component set, Swing, and is deployed to the desktop. Like all Java code, Java GUI applications simplify the task of creating desktop applications because they can be run on any platform.

CIS323 Java GUI extends the level of CIS321 Computer Languages (Java). This course will emphasize Java Swing, the framework that defines the look and feel of the modern Java graphical user interface (GUI). Swing streamlines the design of Java GUI and allows users to create an attractive and efficient GUI that can be customized for relevant applications. In this course, students will be exposed to the basic concepts, design philosophy and core features of Java Swing. It then examines the Swing component set, which includes buttons, check boxes, lists, trees, tables, menus, scroll bars scroll panes.


CIS 519
Electronic Enterprise Engineering using Java —
RFID Implementation

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) describes any system of identification wherein an electronic device uses radio frequency or magnetic field variations to communicate information. The two most talked-about components of an RFID system are the Tag, which is the identification device attached to the item we want to track, and the Reader, which is a device that can recognize the presence of RFID tags and read the information stored on them. The software system with which the reader communicates, and stands between the readers and applications is called RFID Middleware.

Students will be able to gain a wealth of knowledge in the major elements and systems of RFID technology. In addition, we will examine how to use the Java Communication API to send commands to and receive responses from a RFID Reader. By the end of the course, students will have the opportunity to learn practical applications with hands-on examples to illustrate RFID implementation.
