Programming with Objects: A Comparative Presentation of Object-Oriented Programming with C++ and Javaby Avinash Kak
Synopses & Reviews
Your essential comparative approach to learning C++ and Java
Programming with Objects: A Comparative Presentation of Object-Oriented Programming with C++ and Java, a comparative presentation of object-oriented programming with two of the most popular programming languages of today, teaches vital skills and techniques for the Internet age. Based on highly successful courses taught by the author, this book answers the need for a comprehensive educational program on the subject of object-oriented programming. In a clear and accessible format, the author compares and contrasts both languages, from basic language constructs to how both languages are used in application-level programming, such as graphics programming, network programming, and database programming.
Since both C++ and Java were born out of the same language, C, learning these two languages together has several distinct advantages:
Roughly the first half of the text is devoted to basic language issues. More advanced topics are detailed in the second half, including programming of graphical user interfaces, multithreading, network programming, and database programming.
Designed as a text for educational programs in advanced programming and as a reference for professionals implementing Web- and Internet-based applications, Programming with Objects: A Comparative Presentation of Object-Oriented Programming with C++ and Java is also recommended for programmers familiar with either language who wish to expand their programming skills.
C++ is a general purpose programming language that, in addition to systems applications, is extensively used for scientific computation, financial applications, embedded systems, realtime control, and other applications. Emphasizing the commonality between C++ and Java as object oriented languages, this text prepares the reader to program with objects.
