This text covers what students need to know about basic Java programming in a clear, straight-forward writing style.

  • Teaches basic structured programming using Java and then presents a complete and logical development of object-orientation using Java.
  • Explains concepts first, then introduces applications to support the theory so students may explore how Java can be used in real-world object-oriented application development.
  • Includes headings for "Learn the Concepts" and "Apply the Concepts" that clearly identify and modularize discussions of major topics.
  • Contains easy to read chapters that will not intimidate new programmers, offering clear, logical explanation of Java programming and understandable object-oriented development in a sequential format.
  • Includes JDK 5.0 and jGRASP software on CD.
