Learn programming in Java from scratch - and keep on learning!
The new edition of this excellent primer teaches how to program in an object-oriented style. Objects come first providing a framework for understanding how Java programs work and how they can be designed, in an organised and systematic way. Programming is taught with a view to quality software engineering and is anchored in real world issues, particularly testing. Examples and exercises provide motivation. Self- tests and class project suggestions enhance this comprehensive study package.
The purpose of this book is to take readers from the basic principles of object-oriented design and programming using Java through to class library construction and application development.
New to this edition:
JDK 2 compliant
Part 1 - objects and object oriented programming concepts have been made more student friendly with a lot of additional small scale examples to aid understanding
Part 2 - Language Reference now appears at the back of the book so as not to interrupt the flow
The new JFC (including Swing and the container classes) replaces obsolescent AWT

From the Publisher:

This book takes the reader from the basic principles of object-oriented design and programming using Java, through to class library construction and application development. It teaches fundamental programming concepts, object-oriented principles and how to exploit class-based abstraction. This is supported by a detailed description of how programs are designed and is illustrated by substantial examples. With the core concepts in place the book then provides a Java programming language reference detailing each language feature from types and variables through to classes, exceptions and threads. A key part of the reference is the provision of many small example programs, allowing the reader to see how the language features are used.

Reviews of First Edition: 'If you want to learn to program this is an excellent book {and} if you are responsible for running a course on programming then this is a book that you should consider as a course text... Very much recommended.' Francis Glassborrow 'A book suitable as a learning text or reference for professional programmers developing large scale applications and as a set teaching text for courses when one is concerned with more than Java programming... Highly recommended.' Brian Bramer, CVU '...provides a thorough curriculum - all in Java - from basic programming and core algorithms to software engineering issues; it will be a useful single reference for anyone wanting to program well.' New Scientist 1998 'The best part of the book is worked examples of medium-scale programs at the end in a case study section.'
