Summary of title
Programmers can cut right to the chase and learn Java 1.2 fast with this fully-revised and updated edition of Just Java, Peter van der Linden's long-time best-seller! The new edition includes practical introductions to the important new features added to JDK 1.2, especially the graphical "Swing" components. Written in the author's trademark humorous style, it presents a crystal-clear introduction to both Java and object-oriented programming. You'll find extensive real-world examples, and expert insight into both the advantages and challenges of programming with Java 1.2. The accompanying CD-ROM is a comprehensive resource, including extensive sample code from several top Java programmers, the complete 121-page Java Programmer's FAQ, and tons of great freeware, including Linux, Samba, Perl, Tcl, Python, the Algol compiler, Java games, and much more.
van der Linden leads a team of kernel programmers at Sun Microsystems, Inc., developing software for advanced workstations. His books include Not Just Java, Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets (Sun Microsystems Press), and The Official Handbook of Practical Jokes (NAL-Penguin).From the Author:
Approachable one volume intro to Java, from the source
Do you get fed up with technical books where the author tries to impress you with how complex the subject is, instead of putting effort into making it approachable?
I got so fed up with reading those kind of programming books, that I went ahead and wrote my own, first on C Programming, then on Java.
This approach has proven very popular! Here is the 4th edition of Just Java, completely updated for Java 2, Swing, Collections and all the other stuff you need to stay current with Java.
The CD for the book comes with compilers for a dozen other languages as well as Java, and the source code for games, astronomy software, physics applets, and other entertainment. So it's easy for you to try other languages like Python or Perl and compare them with Java. It's easy for you to adapt some of the games code for your own Java programs.
"Just Java 1.2" tells you all you need to know to get up-to-speed with Java in one volume. It's based on the years I spent in Sun's compiler and OS groups, and each edition is improved using the feedback and suggestions of readers. I also maintain the Usenet Java FAQ which keeps me right on top of the areas of Java people find confusing.
Try "Just Java 1.2" -- simple, studded with sample code, and all in a convenient single volume.
