An in-depth, project-based guide to building real-world Java applications that are both efficient and useful. By presenting practical projects, this book shows programmers how to build much more useful, efficient Java applications. This book introduces Java's object-oriented features and the use of Java classes, and demonstrates their importance. It presents Java design patterns and user interfaces, and shows how to use the AWT graphics toolkit to create applications that aren't just friendly, they're fun. Next, the book walks through the construction of a prototype Rapid Application Development environment for Java. Learn design techniques and tricks for creating useful, fast applets. Understand how to manage Java exceptions. Build applets and applications that are data-aware, multithreaded, and utilize animation. Understand Java design patterns and how they can be used to build not just applets, but highly-sophisticated applications. This book is for anyone interested in Java programming, especially experienced Java programmers.From the Back Cover:
Explore Java with a master of OOP (object-oriented programming)
When a new programming language comes along, master programmers have to experiment with it to find the best ways to take advantage of its unique capabilities. Master programmer, Gary Entsminger, shares his discoveries and secrets in The Way of Java.
Organized around the basic elements of OOP and Java, each chapter includes discussions, code, tests, and complete applications. Each application addresses a particular problem the author encountered in his early work with Java. This book recreates each application step by step, leading you through the process and showing you ways to experiment on your own.
For readers unfamiliar with the object model, The Way of Java reviews the basics of OOP as they apply to Java. Even experienced programmers will benefit from Entsminger's insights about Java's special characteristics.
Advanced chapters focus on the intricacies of the GUI, threads, lists, streams, and, of course, applets. Specific topics include:
An appendix provides a selected reference to the Java Development Kit, and the enclosed diskette contains the code for all projects in this book and JavaOnTheRocks, a Java development environment for Microsoft Windows created by the author.
Author of The Tao of Objects, Secrets of the Visual Basic Masters, and The Way of Delphi, Gary Entsminger is a frequent contributor to many computing journals and a contributing editor for the Delphi Informant. He is currently working on a National Science Foundation Grant to develop user-friendly modeling systems based on the Delphi object model.
