9780131246188: Java for Students + CD (4th Edition)

Java programming should be creative, interesting and fun. Java For Students has all the elements to make this a reality. This edition is a comprehensive update of the last, bringing Java For Students up to date with the latest developments in teaching introductory programming with Java. The book takes a bottom up approach, starting with the fundamentals of programming before introducing the more complex concepts of objects and classes. Using programs that utilise graphical images throughout, this text demonstrates programming principles to the reader in a tremendously lucid, easy to learn fashion. This edition uses on Swing throughout to reflect a shift towards Swing rapidly becoming the main technology for Java GUI programming. The authors have also moved to coverage of applications over applets to facilitate the novice programmer's introduction to Swing. Applets are covered in an appendix.
