Murach's Beginning Java 2, JDK 5by Doug Lowe
Synopses & Reviews
This is the second edition of the book that brought an exciting, new approach to Java instruction. Now, fully updated and improved from start to finish, this book helps both novices and experienced programmers learn faster and better than ever. It includes new 5.0 features like the Scanner class, enhanced for loops, typed collections, type-safe enumerations, generics, autoboxing, and the StringBuilder class. It's the first Java book that presents object-oriented features like inheritance, interfaces, and polymorphism in a way that's both understandable and useful in the real world. And it's all done in the unique Murach style that has been training professional programmers for more than 30 years.

The two-page layout lists code examples and syntax on the right-hand page, and provides explanations on the left page.

Murach, Lowe, and Steelman have reengineered the original book from start to finish to take full advantage of the many new features in JDK 5.0. The result: This book now teaches Java better and faster than ever, and it's the only Java book that shows readers how to use object-oriented features such as inheritance, polymorphism, and interfaces in a way that's both logical and useful in the real world.
