Advanced Concepts in Java: Chapter Summary
This chapter has been created to provide you with the skills training you need to master some of the advanced concepts in Java. If using Java programming is already a main part of your job, it simply makes sense to increase your knowledge base and get a better handle on these advanced concepts. Our instructors address each concept one by one, which lets you focus your studies in specific areas. Many of the lessons even use examples that are similar to the real world scenarios you will face in your actual career.
We design our lessons with your needs in mind, which is why we keep each lesson short and to the point. Furthermore, if you ever have any concerns about the lesson topics, you can always send your questions directly to our instructors, who respond as quickly as possible.

1. Java Modifiers: Volatile & Synchronized
In this lesson, find out why synchronization is important in multithreaded Java applications, and when you'd use one or the other of two important keywords used for synchronization: 'volatile' and 'synchronized.'
2. What are Environment Variables? - Definition & Examples
Not only do programs use variables, but operating systems use them as well. This lesson will cover these truly global variables and their use and application in Java.
3. Java Command Line Arguments: Definition & Example
One of Java's features is that you can run programs from the command line, and give the program specific instructions. We will cover these instructions and provide working examples.
4. What is Classpath in Java? - Definition & Example
Even computer languages need to know where to find things, including Java. The CLASSPATH variable lets Java know where to find class libraries. This lesson will define CLASSPATH and provide code examples for its use.
