This text uses Java to describe programming concepts, taking full advantage of Java's simpler and more consistent syntax. Its traditional approach uses modern CS tools including a strategic subset of Java and a simple object-oriented graphics library. The text teaches Java as a first programming language and distills it down to a core of fundamental data types, structures and syntax. It presents Java in a leaner and more practical fashion with a subset covering basic types, stream input and output, the "string" class, branches and loops, functions, parameter passing and classes. The book includes a style guide (available in electronic format) and details common student programming mistakes. The library for the book contains a base class from which students can derive their own applets without having to learn a complex event-handling model. An appendix brings students up to speed in ANSI C++ from Java.

"A wonderful introduction and overview of the Java programming language. It provides many tips to help you advance and dig deeper into Java." (Reinhard Voglmaier, UnixReview.com)From the Back Cover:
With Horstmann... learning Java 2 is like money in the bank!
"COMPUTING CONCEPTS WITH JAVA 2 ESSENTIALS, 2/E is a great, pedagogically excellently thought–out text... Horstmann clearly must be a perfectionist (a man on my wavelength) because one quickly sees that this book was crafted, not just written. Furthermore, one senses the invested effort to determine how to best teach programming to new students." Laurence Vanhelsuwé, JavaWorld – February 1999.
Maybe it′s the easy–to–read style... or the use of a strategic subset of the Java library...or even the early introduction of objects... Whatever the reason, professors and students find that Horstmann provides the most accessible introduction to programming using Java 2. With its focus on problem solving design of solutions, and fundamentals of programming using Java 2, they′ll quickly learn how to apply these skills in developing exciting, working program, but more importantly, they will be learning the essential concepts of computing.
