Enlisting the best-selling "by dissection" method of instruction, this book teaches programming techniques and presents the Java language in a sound and structured manner that is appropriate for both novice and seasoned programmers. It presents a thorough introduction to the programming process by carefully developing working programs to illuminate key features of the Java programming language. Program code is explained in an easy-to-follow manner throughout.This book presents readers with a clear and thorough introduction to the programming process by carefully developing working Java programs, using the method of dissection. A dissection is similar to a structured walk-through of the code, with the intention of explaining newly encountered programming elements and idioms as found in working code to the reader. Key ideas are reinforced throughout by use in different contexts.The Updated edition includes a free "On to C" primer that will help readers transition from the Java language to the C language following the same "by dissection" method used in the book.

Java by Dissection provides a comprehensive, example-based coverage of the Java language, wish an emphasis on programming style and methodology. It assumes no prior programming experience, making it ideal for readers who are starting out in their software development careers as well as for programmers who want to expand their skills.
Teaching "by Dissection"
Java by Dissection stresses working code introducing full working programs from the start.. In each chapter, a program particularly illustrative of the chapter's themes is presented and then analyzed by dissection—Ira Pohl's trademark code-presentation technique that reveals the underlying structure of the programs. This dissection of code helps readers comprehend newly encountered programming elements and idioms.
Traditional and Object-Oriented Programming
Java by Dissection begins by explaining how all the basic data types and control statements are used traditionally, and then progresses to the object-oriented features of the Java language and their importance to program design. This gradual introduction to OOP ensures that novices attain an understanding of programming basics before moving on to Java's object-oriented features.
The second half of Java by Dissection explains in detail much that is sophisticated about Java such as its threading GUI, exception handling and file-manipulation capabilities. With its depth and scope this book is both a carefully structured teaching text an (I a valuable reference in Java Programming.
