The practicing programmer’s DEITEL® guide to Java™ development and the Powerful Java™ Platform

Written for programmers with a background in high-level language programming, this book applies the Deitel signature live-code approach to teaching programming and explores the Java language and Java APIs in depth. The book presents the concepts in the context of fully tested programs, complete with syntax shading, code highlighting, line-by-line code descriptions and program outputs. The book features 220 Java applications with over 18,000 lines of proven Java code, and hundreds of tips that will help you build robust applications.

Start with an introduction to Java using an early classes and objects approach, then rapidly move on to more advanced topics, including GUI, graphics, exception handling, generics, collections, JDBC™, web-application development with JavaServer™ Faces, web services and more. You’ll enjoy the Deitels’ classic treatment of object-oriented programming and the OOD/UML® ATM case study, including a complete Java implementation. When you’re finished, you’ll have everything you need to build object-oriented Java applications.

The DEITEL® Developer Series is designed for practicing programmers. The series presents focused treatments of emerging technologies, including Java™, C++, .NET, web services, Internet and web development and more.



“Presenting software engineering side by side with core Java concepts is highly refreshing; gives readers insight into how professional software is developed.”—Clark Richey (Java Champion), RABA Technologies, LLC.

“The quality of the design and code examples is second to none!”—Terrell Hull, Enterprise Architect

“The JDBC chapter is very hands on. I like the fact that Java DB/Apache Derby is used in the examples, which makes it really simple to learn and understand JDBC.”—Sandeep Konchady, Sun Microsystems

“Equips you with the latest web application technologies. Examples are impressive and real! Want to develop a simple address locator with Ajax and JSF? Jump to Chapter 22.”—Vadiraj Deshpande, Sun Microsystems

“Covers web services with Java SE 6 and Java EE 5 in a real-life, example-based, friendly approach. The Deitel Web Services Resource Center is really good, even for advanced developers.”—Sanjay Dhamankar, Sun Microsystems

“Mandatory book for any serious Java EE developer looking for improved productivity: JSF development, visual web development and web services development have never been easier.”—Ludovic Chapenois, Sun Microsystems

“I teach Java programming and object-oriented analysis and design. The OOD/UML 2 case study is the best presentation of the ATM example I have seen.”—Craig W. Slinkman, University of Texas–Arlington

“Introduces OOP and UML 2 early. The conceptual level is perfect. No other book comes close to its quality of organization and presentation. The live-code approach to presenting exemplary code makes a big difference in the learning outcome.”—Walt Bunch, Chapman University/
