This book takes the reader from the basic principles of object-oriented design and programming using Java, through to class library construction and application development. It teaches fundamental programming concepts, object-oriented principles and how to exploit class-based abstraction. This is supported by a detailed description of how programs are designed and is illustrated by substantial examples. With the core concepts in place the book then provides a Java programming language reference detailing each language feature from types and variables through to classes, exceptions and threads. A key part of the reference is the provision of many small example programs, allowing the reader to see how the language features are used.

Editorial Reviews

Taking an object-oriented approach, the authors look at the ways in which aspects of the Java language contribute to the learning of Java programming techniques. They begin by considering the nature of programming, particularly with classes and objects. They then turn to such topics as the basic framework of a program, the development of libraries of Java software, and abstractions that can be used to construct applications. This support text can be used for a full year of teaching or learning programming. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
