Book News Annotation:

This guide describes Java's basic data types, the control structures that manipulate data, the object-oriented features of the language, the way run-time errors are handled, and how threads are used. It then introduces the key packages in the Java class library, and walks through the process of building an example application for drawing sketches. Although no prior programming experience is required, a firm acquaintance with computer technologies is recommended.

About the Author

Ivor Horton started out as a mathematician, but shortly after graduating, he was lured into messing about with computers by a well-known manufacturer.
