Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In C++ for Java Programmers, the student gets an introduction to C++ that enlists their Java programming skills to get them comfortably programming in C++. This title is an appropriate supplement for any upper level course in which students are required to program in C++, or for anyone with experience in Java who is interested in an introduction to C++. The text first walks the Java programmer through features controlled by the Java language but left to the programmer in C++ (e.g., the use of pointers, controlling memory management). It then builds upon their Java experience to teach language features that are slightly different (e.g., the structure of a class definition, polymorphism). Characteristics of C++ that have no correlation in Java are then presented. Features

  • "Test Your Understanding" questions at the end of each chapter
  • Four chapter-long case studies
  • walked-through examples of C++ language features
  • A price point and length that makes this an ideal title for students who need to learn C++ for their coursework

Synopsis:

In C++ for Java Programmers, readers are provided with an introduction to C++ that enlists their Java programming skills to get them comfortably programming in C++. This book is appropriate for anyone with experience in Java who is interested in an introduction to C++. It begins by discussing how to perform tasks in C++ that are inherent in Java, such as pointers and memory management. It then builds upon their Java experience to teach language features like class definitions and polymorphism which are slightly different in C++. Finally, aspects of C++ that have no correlation in Java — as well as those of Java not found in C++ — are presented.

Synopsis:

This text enables the reader to use Java programming skills to program comfortably in C++. It is an appropriate supplement for any upper level course in which programming in C++ is required, and an introduction to C++ for anyone with experience in Java.
