Product description

From the Back Cover


Best-selling author, Walter Savitch, uses a conversational style to teach programmers problem solving and programming techniques with Java. Readers are introduced to object-oriented programming and important computer science concepts such as top-down design, debugging, style, and abstract data types. The Java coverage is a concise, accessible introduction that covers key language features. Thorough early coverage of objects is included, with an emphasis on applications over applets.

Professor Savitch includes a highly flexible format that allows instructors and readers to adapt coverage of topics to their order of preference. This text assumes no previous programming experience.

Other Key Features

  • Complete explanations of Java language features are included with sample code and entire programs.
  • Summary Boxes that summarize key Java features and problem solving techniques provide quick review of chapter material.
  • Programming Tips explain good programming practices, while Gotcha sections identify common programming problems and pitfalls.
  • The AWT is used to teach how to design portable GUIs and produce professional windowing interfaces. In the process, readers learn event-driven programming and object-oriented programming.
  • The Java material was tested using Sun Microsystem's Java JDK version 1.1 and is consistent with changes scheduled for version 1.2.
  • Self-Test Questions with answers follow important topics so users can check their level of understanding.
  • Engaging Case Studies expose readers to real-life applications.
  • The book's CD-ROM includes all the programs and classes, a student version of Code Warrior, and an integrated development environment for Windows 95/NT and Macintosh.
  • The Companion Web Site includes an Online Student Study Guide and program code.
