Java For Dummies by Barry A. Burd

The top-selling beginning Java book is now fully updated!

As an unstoppably platform-independent, object-oriented programming language, Java is used for developing web and mobile applications. In this up-to-date bestselling book, veteran author Barry Burd shows you how to create basic Java objects and clearly explains when you should simply reuse existing code.

  • Explores how the new version of Java offers more robust functionality and new features such as closures to keep Java competitive with more syntax-friendly languages like Python and Ruby
  • Covers object-oriented programming basics with Java, code reuse, the essentials of creating a Java program using the new JDK 7, creating basic Java objects, and new Eclipse features
  • Features a companion website that offers all code from the book and bonus chapters

Java For Dummies, 6th Edition gets you started with creating Java applications quickly and easily.

This book is not about java or creating java programs. It is about using some bass akward program called JCreator which costs $89.00 and can only be installed on one machine and heaven help you if that machine breaks and you want to install it on another machine. Don't be fooled by the JCreator LE version which is free, but worthless.

After playing my favorite game, minecraft, I was encouraged to learn Java, so I picked up this book and now i'm writting programs

I've been trying to learn programming for a while, and this book really helped. It gives you everything you need in a nice CD along with explaining how to install and use it. The chapters are well-organized and very in-depth while not being too complicated. Overall I highly recommend it if you wish to learn Java.
