This book is a gentle introduction to the Java programming language, assuming no programming background, by introducing readers to object-oriented programming concepts. The book teaches the elements of program design, the Java language, and how to create Java Applets. While the emphasis is on writing basic application code that is useful on the Internet, the book also tackles some difficult Java programming issues such as algorithmic thinking, built-in classes, and control expressions. Like the well-received Who's Afraid of C++?, the unique feature of the book is the e-mail interaction between an instructor and a novice who learns Java by reading the book and asking questions along the way. The 3.5" disk features a fully functional Java compiler.
* Emphasis is on programming basics for all types of Java applications
* Assumes no Java programming background
* Tackles the hard issues of Java programming in an easily understood manner
* CD-ROM features Visual J++ Test Release 1.1 and Microsoft's Internet Explorer 3.02
