It includes thorough coverage of the Swing libraries and event driven programming. The Java coverage is a concise, accessible introduction that covers key language features. Thorough early coverage of objects is included, with an emphasis on applications over applets. The author includes a highly flexible format that allows instructors and readers to adapt coverage of topics to their preferred order. Although the text does cover more advanced topics as inheritance, exception handling, and the Swing libraries, it begins with teaching traditional, more basic techniques, such as algorithm design.
