The course will use JDK(Java Development Kit) and covers all the new language features.
This course includes worked out examples illustrating new JDK features that are fully explained throughout the course.
Core Java has been carefully planned to help students create faster, smaller and more efficient Java application.
Addressing the need to acquire a good working model of objects in order to avoid possible misconceptions, the text introduces the core concepts of object-oriented programming at an early stage, supported by the use of contour diagrams. Each chapter has one or more complete programs to illustrate the various ideas presented, and to help readers learn how to write programs on their own. Chapter summaries and practical exercises are also included to help the reader to review their progress and practice their skills.
Topics and features: provides an introduction to variables, input/output, and arithmetic operations; describes objects and contour diagrams, explains selection structures, and demonstrates how iteration structures work; discusses object-oriented concepts such as overloading and classes methods, and introduces string variables and processing; illustrates arrays and array processing, and examines recursion; explores inheritance and polymorphism, and investigates elementary files; presents a primer on graphical input/output, discusses elementary exception processing, and presents the basics of Javadoc; includes exercises at the end of each chapter, with selected answers in an appendix, and a glossary of key terms; provides additional supplementary information at an associated website.
This concise and easy-to-follow textbook/guide is ideal for students in an introductory programming course. It is also suitable as a self-study guide for both practitioners and academics.
Principally, Java is an object-oriented programming language. By establishing a solid foundation in the understanding of object-oriented programming concepts and their applications, the book provides readers with the pre-requisites for writing proper object-oriented programs using Java.
Object-Oriented Programming and Java covers the latest in Java technologies and is suitable for undergraduate or postgraduate courses on object-oriented technology, and in particular, using Java as a programming language for creating object-oriented programs.
