From the Back Cover:

Java: An Eventful Approach has been written from the ground up to help students master objects and events first—so they can begin accomplishing serious programming tasks with Java far more quickly.

Authored by three leading experts in computer science instruction—including 2005 SIGCSE award-winner Kim Bruce—this book reflects a fundamental rethinking of how Java and object-oriented languages are taught. To give students the "training wheels" they need to rapidly begin using sophisticated Java features, the authors introduce a complete objectoriented graphics library. Using it, students can immediately begin programming simple graphics and animations, and literally see the results of their code. Students learn core language features as they're ready—and master powerful features such as concurrency far sooner than in conventional treatments.

This book's object-first approach, content, and features have been systematically proven at many of the world's leading universities, four-year colleges, and two-year institutions. Features include:

  • Strong focus on event-driven programming with GUI components: a paradigm students recognize from their experience with point-and-click environments
  • Early introductions to simple concurrency and threads, focusing on correct programming style
  • Thorough, step-by-step coverage of all typical introductory material, including arrays, strings, recursion, files, sorting, searching, inheritance, and more
  • An exceptionally effective approach to teaching exceptions
  • A practical primer on the fundamentals of object-oriented design
  • Embedded chapter exercises for assessing progress
  • End-of-chapter review exercises and programming problems that reinforce key concepts and techniques
  • Appendix explaining how to navigate and read any Java API

Book Depository hard to find
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description Pearson Education (US), United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. For courses in computer science and programming in Java. Teaching a truly object-oriented language like Java is far different than teaching a language like C or C++. As a result, this text demonstrates a major rethinking in pedagogy that has been tested thoroughly at a number of major universities and other four-year and two-year institutions. Good examples of objects and a comprehensive library that supports object-oriented graphics foster student understanding and instructor effectiveness. The library provides "training wheels" to help students get started with using these features, but they are taught the standard Java features as they are ready. Seller Inventory # BTE9780131424159
