This unique book teaches you the fundamental concepts of good computer programming while introducing you to one of the most powerful languages in use today--Java! It gives you an ideal balance between programming concepts and the details of Java. Rather than exhaustively cover the entire language, the author focuses on a subset of Java--a lean and practical core that is manageable, yet detailed enough to create powerful Java applets. And as you master the basics of Java, you'll be developing solid programming skills that will increase your effectiveness no matter which language you work with! Includes a wealth of practical advice, tips, and reference material.From the Back Cover:
With Horstmann... learning Java 2 is like money in the bank!
"COMPUTING CONCEPTS WITH JAVA 2 ESSENTIALS, 2/E is a great, pedagogically excellently thought-out text... Horstmann clearly must be a perfectionist (a man on my wavelength) because one quickly sees that this book was crafted, not just written. Furthermore, one senses the invested effort to determine how to best teach programming to new students." Laurence Vanhelsuwé, JavaWorld - February 1999.
Maybe it's the easy-to-read style... or the use of a strategic subset of the Java library...or even the early introduction of objects... Whatever the reason, professors and students find that Horstmann provides the most accessible introduction to programming using Java 2. With its focus on problem solving design of solutions, and fundamentals of programming using Java 2, they'll quickly learn how to apply these skills in developing exciting, working program, but more importantly, they will be learning the essential concepts of computing.
