9780201385984: On to Java 1.2 (2nd Edition)

On to Java has been substantially updated to exploit the features of Java 1.2. Written in the clear and concise style that has made Winston's language books popular among programmers adding new languages to their repertoires, the book helps students learn Java quickly and effectively, and learn why Java is the language of choice for writing programs for the Web. Organized in easily digested segments that answer the student's natural questions in a natural order, each section adds capabilities to a short, yet representative Java program. As students see the program evolve, they learn to design class hierarchies; impose requirements using interfaces; follow the model-view approach to interface design; access applets from network viewers; use threads to implement dynamic applets. With Java 1.2, they also learn to access files via resources; exploit wing classes; draw using the Graphics2D class; generate Java beans for GUI builders; and much, much more. Software for this book is available via the Web.

Review:

A clear, concise, no-nonsense book on Java that would appeal most to serious programmers. Authored by an MIT CS prof and a real-world Java expert. Written in a terse, slide-show style that presents each essential idea in a brief paragraph without unnecessary verbiage. Much like this review.
