Overview

Even without the sophisticated development tools that C++ and Visual Basic enjoy, the Java programming language has attracted the interest of countless computing professionals. Now, with Borland's JBuilder -- and JBuilder For Dummies -- you can easily transform your interest in the language into real, practical Java applets and applications.

In JBuilder For Dummies, Java expert Barry A. Burd provides the information you need, whether you're new to Java or just new to JBuilder. Burd orients you to the JBuilder user interface and covers in plain English such essential topics as

  • Defining object-oriented programming
  • Taking advantage of the JBuilder program's built-in Project, Applet, and Application Wizards to streamline your programming
  • Discovering what the JBuilder program's innovative AppBrowser has to offer (after you've programmed with it, you'll never be able to go back to your old way of programming)
  • Avoiding reinventing the wheel by using Java's Abstract Windowing Toolkit (AWT)
  • Putting together a complete Java-based Web application
  • Enhancing your applets' interactivity, including adding sound and animation

Plus, JBuilder For Dummies comes complete with a bonus CD-ROM containing the author's own sample applets and code, as well as Windows software, such as

  • JBuilder Professional Publisher's Edition -- a 90-day trial version of JBuilder
  • JBuilder Presentation -- a detailed multimedia demonstration of the JBuilder program's feature set
  • Paint Shop Pro -- the amazing shareware image-editing program for PCs
  • Astound WebMotion -- a trial version of the easy-to-use program for adding animation toyour Web pages
  • Home Site 2.0 -- the popular HTML editor from Bradbury Software
