Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The seventh edition of Core Java? 2, Volume I, covers the fundamentals of the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE?). A no-nonsense tutorial and reliable reference, this book features thoroughly tested real-world examples. The most important language and library features are demonstrated with deliberately simple sample programs, but they aren?t fake and they don?t cut corners. More importantly, all of the programs have been updated for J2SE 5.0 and should make good starting points for your own code. You won?t find any toy examples here. This is a book for programmers who want to write real code to solve real problems.

Book News Annotation:

Horstmann (San Jose State University) introduces Java's syntax language, the object-oriented concepts of encapsulation and inheritance, the event model of the abstract window toolkit, the Swing GUI toolkit, applets, and exception handling. Volume II addresses enterprise and advanced user interface features. Previous experience with another programming language is recommended. The seventh edition covers JDK 5.0 and adds a chapter on generic programming
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
