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.'
