Publisher Comments:

To ease readers into Java, Programming with Alice and Javaintertwines the ideas of object-oriented programming in both languages. Programming in Alice is explored first to establish fundamental principles and skills using 3D animations in a fun, visually rich environment. With Alice as a foundation, Chapter 6 introduces readers to Java. The remaining chapters implement concepts in the Java programming language using interesting examples and drawing parallels between the two languages to keep readers engaged. Alice: Objects; Methods and Data; Control Statements; Events; Lists and Arrays. Java: Objects and Classes; Events; Lists and Arrays; Inheritance; Exceptions and I/O; Recursion. For all readers interested in an introduction to programming using Alice and Java.
