Donna M. Dean"At long last, a Java book written with understandable text, ready-to-run code sniplets, and some of the best exercises in print! As a Web Development instructor, I've seen many introductory Java books with text that read like a translated technical specification sheet. This book has a no-nonsense style, with an expert perspective on the big picture - the need to learn the API.
The first five chapters clearly establish all the groundwork for Java, covering OOP foundation topics like exception handling, UML diagrams, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. Then, it contains numerous standout chapters that should be read by every Java developer because they're totally relevant yet generally obscure from existing texts. To mention just a few: working with dates and times (a necessity for business programmers); graphics (covering numerous Swing components); and JDBC (which is a must-read for every Java developer).
For sure, we will be using this book for our next Java class."
