Java SE advanced course

In this course, the participant will deepen his knowledge of the Java programming language to build well structured, high performant, distributed applications. We will focus on topics like String handling and formatting, i18n, NIO2, functional programming, logging, testing, generics and multithreading.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
