Appropriate for intermediate to advanced courses in Java.
In Thinking in Java, Third Edition, Bruce Eckel revises his widely-praised Java introduction to fully reflect the power of Java 2 Standard Edition, Version 1.4. This new edition of the book that won the 1999 Software Development Magazine Productivity Award adds thoroughly updated coverage of servlets, JSP, and EJB. As always, Eckel doesn't just show students what to do, but why. He introduces all the basics of objects as Java uses them; then walks carefully through the fundamentals of Java programming, including program flow, initialization and cleanup, implementation hiding, reusing classes and polymorphism. Using to-the-point examples, he introduces exception handling, Java I/O, run-time type identification, and passing and returning objects. Coverage also includes: database integration, transactions, security, Swing GUI development, Jini, JavaSpaces, and much more. Eckel presents Java one simple step at a time, carefully organizing his material so students can learn new concepts even in short study periods, and thoroughly digest each new idea and technique before moving on. All code examples are simple and short, enabling even beginners to understand every detail. All code examples are on the accompanying CD-ROM, along with electronic copies of the book in several formats, and the complete Thinking in C multimedia course, which introduces crucial concepts every beginning programmer must master before learning Java.
