Logical, supportive presentation — Starts students with essential problem-solving and programming concepts (control statements, methods, and arrays); moves on to object-oriented programming, graphical user interface (GUI), and applets; and finally introduces exception handling, binary I/O, and recursion.

Early hands-on practice — Enables students to write short, interesting, graphical game programs starting from Chapter 2.

Exceptionally broad range of carefully chosen examples — Reinforces key concepts with objectives lists, introduction and chapter overviews, easy-to-follow examples, chapter summaries, review questions, programming exercises, and an interactive self-test.

• GOAL online courseware — Utilizes the industry’s most advanced online homework application to give students solutions to even-numbered programming exercises, source code for the examples in the book, online self assessment (w/over 1000 multiple-choice questions) and online homework.

The most extensive instructor support package available — Includes interactive and animated slides, TestGen (w/over 2000 multiple-choice questions), solutions to all programming exercises, sample exams and supplemental exercises.

• Instructor resource center and companion website at http://www.cs.armstrong.edu/liang/intro6e/intro6einstructor.html

These resources contain:

— Microsoft PowerPoint slides with interactive buttons to view full-color, syntax-highlighted source code and to run programs without leaving the slides

— Sample exams

— Solutions to all the exercises (Students can access the solutions of even-numbered exercises in the book’s companion CD-ROM)

— Web-based quiz generator

— Online quiz.

• Complete coverage on Java collections framework, threads, JavaBeans, advanced GUI components, JDBC, Servlets, JSP, networking, and RMI.

• Practical examples such as computing loan payments, taxes, and printing payroll statements — Replaces pure mathematical examples such as computing deviations and matrix multiplications.

• Case studies–Offers students additional examples for learning the fundamentals of programming, such as writing loops.

• Carefully chosen, easy-to-follow, representative examples–Include a description, source code, sample run, and an example review.

• UML (Unified Modeling Language) graphical notations throughout — Describes classes and their relationships; teaches students design and development of Java programs using the industry standard modeling technique.

• Notes and tips throughout — Offer valuable advice and insight on important aspects of program development..

• Sample exams — Includes multiple-choice questions, correct programming errors, trace programs, and write programs.

• Supplemental exercises with solutions — Give instructors more options when assigning homework or writing exams.
