This revision of a best seller covers Java 2-the newest version of the Java programming language- principles of programming, and core Java features. The book includes all the subjects required in the Level 1 Java Certification Exam. The book is aided by Borland®'s JBuilder…œ—which can help readers not only develop Java programs more productively, but also learn Java programming more effectively. JBuilder…œ 4 is introduced throughout the book, making learning of JBuilder…œ easy, because the new features of JBuilder…œ are covered in relation to the topics in each chapter. A CD-ROM with each copy of the book includes source code and JBuilder…œ 4 Foundation Software. KEY TOPICS: A step-by-step approach first lays a sound foundation on programming elements, control statements, and methods; then introduces object-oriented programming; moves on to graphics programming; and concludes with advanced features that enable readers to develop comprehensive programs. Expansion of Part II provides a more in-depth introduction to object-oriented programming and design. Topics such as arrays, inheritance, Swing graphics programming, exception handling, internationalization, multithreading, multimedia, I/O, and Java data are featured. MARKET: For reference use by those in computer science, engineering and business careers who want to learn Java programming with JBuilder…œ.
