Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Java Software Solutions is the premier text for teaching beginning programmers how to design and implement high-quality software using Java. Instructors trust the book's focus on developing high-quality software using Java. Instructors trust the book's focus on developing problem-solving and design skills alongside solid programming techniques. Students appreciate its clear writing and wealth of realistic programming examples. The Sixth Edition introduces improvements that make this book an even more useful teaching and learning tool.

 

KEY FEATURES

  • A measured approach to objects teaches students first how to use objects and then how to write them.
  • Fully implemented examples demonstrate specific concepts — small, readily understandable examples are intertwined with larger, more realistic ones.
  • An optional Graphics Track covers graphics and GUIs at the end of each chapter, allowing for flexibility of coverage.
  • Extensive review and practice features include end-of-chapter questions, exercises, projects, and new end-of-section exercises.
  • NEW! Software Failure vignettes discuss real-world flaws in software design, encouraging students to adopt sound design practices from the beginning.
  • The text is completely compatible with Java 6.0.
  • NEW! Video Notes, presented by the author, explain topics visually in an easy-to-follow format, giving students the extra help they need to grasp important concepts. Each chapter has multiple Video Notes that walk students through examples and problem solutions. Conveniently accessible on www.aw.com/lewis or CD-ROM (available separately).

myCodeMate is a Web-based, textbook-specific homework tool and programming resource for an introduction to programming course. It provides a wide range of tools that students can use to help them learn programming concepts, prepare for tests, and earn better grades in the introductory programming course. Students can work on programming problems from this text or homework problems created by their professors and receive guided hints with page references and English explanations of compiler errors. Instructors can assign textbook-specific or self-created homeowrk problems, preset style attributes, view students' code and class compiler error logs, and track homework completion. A complimentary subscription is offered when an access code is ordered packaged with a new copy of this text. Subscriptions may also be purchased online.
