Java 8 Fundamentals: Input/Output

by Jose Paumard

Java I/O is one of the four core APIs of the JDK, on which many others are built, including Database access, Web Services, and REST Services. In this course, you'll learn everything you need to write and understand Java I/O code.

What you'll learn

The Java I/O API is a fundamental API of the JDK, at the basis of database access APIs and Web access APIs. In this course, Java 8 Fundamentals: Input/Output, you'll learn all the details of this API, both the theoretical aspects on slides and the patterns during extended live coding sessions. First, you'll delve into code in action, showing you real life problem solving techniques. Next, you'll explore how to read and write characters, how to create complex files mixing text and raw bytes, and how to create archive files using the ZIP format. Finally, you'll discover how to use serialization efficiently and how to deal with errors due to obsolete serialized objects. By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to deal with complex Java I/O problems in existing legacy applications and new developments.
