This book teaches two important topics in contemporary software development: object-oriented programming and Java. The book uses a different approach from most of the available literature. It begins with a description of real-world object interaction scenarios and explains how they can be translated, represented, and executed using the object-oriented programming paradigm. After establishing a solid foundation in the object-oriented programming concepts, the book explains the proper implementation using Java. Topics run from "A Quick Tour of Java" to "Graphical Interfaces and Windows," to "Java Database Connectivity," and much more.
