You’ll enjoy the Deitels’ classic treatment of object-oriented programming and the OOD/UML® ATM case study, including a complete Java implementation. When you’re finished, you’ll have everything you need to build object-oriented Java applications. The DEITEL® Developer Series is designed for practicing programmers. The series presents focused treatments of emerging technologies, including Java™, C++, .NET, web services, Internet and web development and more.  PRE-PUBLICATION REVIEWER TESTIMONIALS “Presenting software engineering side by side with core Java concepts is highly refreshing; gives readers insight into how professional software is developed.”—Clark Richey (Java Champion), RABA Technologies, LLC. “The quality of the design and code examples is second to none!”—Terrell Hull, Enterprise Architect “The JDBC chapter is very hands on. I like the fact that Java DB/Apache Derby is used in the examples, which makes it really simple to learn and understand JDBC.”—Sandeep Konchady, Sun Microsystems “Equips you with the latest web application technologies. Examples are impressive and real! Want to develop a simple address locator with Ajax and JSF? Jump to Chapter 22.”—Vadiraj Deshpande, Sun Microsystems “Covers web services with Java SE 6 and Java EE 5 in a real-life, example-based, friendly approach. The Deitel Web Services Resource Center is really good, even for advanced developers.”—Sanjay Dhamankar, Sun Microsystems “Mandatory book for any serious Java EE developer looking for improved productivity: JSF development, visual web development and web services development have never been easier.”—Ludovic Chapenois, Sun Microsystems “I teach Java programming and object-oriented analysis and design. The OOD/UML 2 case study is the best presentation of the ATM example I have seen.”—Craig W. Slinkman, University of Texas–Arlington “Introduces OOP and UML 2 early. The conceptual level is perfect. No other book comes close to its quality of organization and presentation. The live-code approach to presenting exemplary code makes a big difference in the learning outcome.”—Walt Bunch, Chapman University/

Whew! The Deitels compiled this massive tome on Java 6, which is the current 2008-9 version of java. If you are an aspiring java programmer, it's all here, at least as far as what you are likely to need in understanding the most common aspects and classes of java. However the sheer size of the text is maybe ironically a problem in its own right. Not knowing any java, how much do you need? Part 1 is chapters 1-10. They explain the syntax and describe the basic mathematical operations. There is no GUI. It's all command line I/O. You learn the class structure of java, and the concepts of polymorphism and object oriented programming. En route, UML diagrams are introduced. These are broadly used, not just for java, and useful to acquire. Only simple UML diagrams are explained; not the full graphical expressive power of UML, but it's enough to build on. Part 2 has [only] 2 chapters on graphics. Elementary widgets and accompanying discussion but, hey!, you can now easily write little programs that put up windows with buttons, panes and other stuff. What part 2 also deals with are more advanced non-graphic topics. Like files and exception handling. Part 3 has 1 chapter on more graphics. I personally would have put all 3 graphics chapters into exclusively one section. It's a reality these days that many programs have a GUI, and the book should reflect this need. But aside from merely regrouping the graphics chapters, there could have been a more extensive discussion. Those chapters give example programs which are simple wrappers around using just 1 or 2 types of widgets in each. Which is fine. But what is lacking is at least 1 nontrivial example of a GUI with numerous different widgets, so that the reader can get some appreciation of how to do this. Granted, the book is long enough as is, and it's always easy to say add more. So maybe space considerations dictated the current choices.

I have been programming for the past 30 years using many procedural languages. I have done a lot of AJAX primarily using Javascript and PHP. I have been avoiding Java for the past few years because I did not want to learn object oriented programming and it seemed so unnecessarily complicated. I have purchased many books on programming in Java, none of these were helpful. Your book is the first that helped me to gradually and logically build my understanding of this very verbose programming framework. I congratulate on this excellent work.
