9780471153245: Java for C/C++ Programmers

The fastest way for C and C++ programmers to learn how to program with Java

While most programmers look at Java mainly for building Web applets, this robust, interpreted, object-oriented language is very well-suited to the development of large-scale applications. Offering a fast way to learn Java inside and out, Java for C/C++ Programmers explains Java's features in terms of their similarities and differences to C and C++. In fact, by building on C and C++ concepts you already know, you'll be able to produce simple Java programs within an hour, and much more complex programs in just a few days. This book is all a C/C++ programmer needs to learn Java!

Java for C/C++ Programmers, you'll:

  • Quickly master everything you need to develop full-scale applications using Java, including Java language, the Java Abstract Window Toolkit and applet programming. Every major concept is accompanied by a complete working Java program.
  • Learn the basics of JavaScript programming and how it compares to Java. You'll even get JavaScript source code that will add interactivity to your Web pages immediately.
  • Learn how each C and C++ feature compares to Java, as well as Java techniques for implementing many of the features left out of the language intentionally such as pointers, variable arguments, and multiple-inheritance.
  • Master the Java Class Library from descriptions and examples for every class and API listing in the library.

Disk Includes:

  • 100 complete Java and JavaScript source code examples from the book
  • Useful Java applications such as a Java Database Management system, a graphical reminder application, and a multithreaded simulation
  • Time-saving programmer utilities such as a Line Number filter, a Comment filter, and API extractor

From the Publisher:

Java is hot. Some even call it the next C++. Currently Java is being used to create little happlets but this book taps into the real potential of Java as a robust programming language. It shows you how to develop large-scale Java applications in multi-platform, networked environments by building on the C and C++ programming concepts you already know. This book explains Java functions noting their similarities and differences to C and C++, and why and how Java may be a better alternative for building secure applications.
