9780132122306: Data Abstraction and Problem Solving with Java: Walls and Mirrors

The Third Edition of Data Abstraction and Problem Solving with Java: Walls and Mirrors employs the analogies of Walls (data abstraction) and Mirrors (recursion) to teach Java programming design solutions, in a way that beginning students find accessible. The book has a student-friendly pedagogical approach that carefully accounts for the strengths and weaknesses of the Java language. With this book, students will gain a solid foundation in data abstraction, object-oriented programming, and other problem-solving techniques.

From the Back Cover:

This book is based on the classic "Walls and Mirrors" approach used in the best-selling Data Abstraction and Problem Solving in C++, and is now updated to the Java programming language. It uses the running theme of "Walls and Mirrors" to help make clear the challenging concepts of recursion (the mirrors) and data abstraction (the walls). Authors Carrano and Prichard cover key object-oriented concepts, including encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. However, the focus of the book remains on data abstraction instead of simply Java syntax.

Features:
  • Provides a firm foundation in data abstraction (the walls), emphasizing the distinction between specification and implementation as the foundation for the object-oriented approach
  • Offers extensive coverage of recursion (the mirrors) and uses the technique throughout many examples and exercises.
  • Introduces analysis of algorithms and Big "O" notation.
  • Provides an appendix covering basic Java syntax for those know a different language or who need a refresher
  • Contains many pedagogical study aids such as programming pitfall warnings and self-tests with answers
  • A proven approach, adapted from the best selling Data Abstraction and Problem Solving in C++
