9780131013780: Java: An Introduction to Computer Science and Programming (Programming Languages)

Appropriate for introductory Computer Science courses using Java (CS1 with Java) and other introductory programming courses using Java offered in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computer Information Systems, Management Information Systems, Information Technology, and Business departments.

Best-selling author, Walter Savitch, uses a conversational style to teach programmers problem solving and programming techniques with Java. Readers are introduced to object-oriented programming and important computer science concepts such as testing and debugging techniques, program style, inheritance, and exception handling. It includes thorough coverage of the Swing libraries and event driven programming. The Java coverage is a concise, accessible introduction that covers key language features. Thorough early coverage of objects is included, with an emphasis on applications over applets. The author includes a highly flexible format that allows instructors and readers to adapt coverage of topics to their preferred order. Although the text does cover more advanced topics as inheritance, exception handling, and the Swing libraries, it begins with teaching traditional, more basic techniques, such as algorithm design.
