Developers often tell me they wish they’d found our Java ebook first, before spending time and money on others. They also say it’s the book they turn to when they’re getting ready to learn Android programming. Here are a few of the reasons why I believe this book will work equally well for you:
- This book teaches the core Java skills that you need to work with objects, graphical user interfaces (GUIs), files, and databases.
- It gives you a fast start! In fact, by the end of chapter 6, you’ll be developing bulletproof Java applications with business classes and objects.
- It now shows you how to use the NetBeans IDE to code, test, and debug Java applications. This easy-to-use tool boosts your productivity and is widely used in industry. So you’ll be working like a pro right from the start.
- It takes the mystery out of object-oriented programming by using real-world applications (instead of objects like cats and dogs) to demonstrate key concepts like inheritance, interfaces, and polymorphism.
- It covers the most useful features introduced in Java SE 7, like the try-with-resources statement, the diamond operator (<>), and an improved file system API (known as NIO2).
- In the GUI section, it shows you how to use the NetBeans Swing GUI builder to design a form and generate the code needed to display it. As a result, this section has you focus on critical coding skills, such as handling events, instead of on code that should be generated.
- Because business applications routinely handle data, it shows how to work with text files, binary files, XML files, and databases (using JDBC).
- It now has a chapter on deploying applications by using executable JAR files or Java Web Start.
- It gives you the Java skills that you need to get started with Android programming. That’s true whether you’re looking to refresh your skills…or whether you’re learning Java for the first time.
- All the skills are presented in our standard, “paired-pages” format, to save you time on both training and reference.
From the Publisher
Developers often tell me they wish they’d found our Java ebook first, before spending time and money on others. Here are 4 of the reasons why I believe this book will work equally well for you:
#1: The first six chapters get you off to a fast start
By the time you complete these chapters, you’ll be writing bulletproof, object-oriented applications with business classes and objects. These chapters work well for the complete beginner. But they also get the experienced developer up-to-speed fast.
#2: The class summaries help you master the Java API and save you hours of research
Although most books present dozens of coding examples that illustrate the use of some Java classes, they don’t try to summarize all of the classes, constructors, and methods that you’ll use the most. Our book does both. For instance, to learn how to use the LinkedList class, you’ll first see a summary of its primary constructors and methods. Then, you’ll see coding examples that show you how you can apply those constructors and methods. This can save you hundreds of hours of research over the course of the book.
#3: Chapters 7 and 8 show you how to use inheritance, interfaces, and polymorphism in a way that is both practical and understandable
You won’t find any toy applications or cat and dog objects in these chapters. Instead, you’ll study practical examples that show you how to use inheritance, polymorphism, interfaces, type-safe enumerations, and the factory pattern in business applications. This at last takes the mystery out of object-oriented programming. And we just haven’t seen this done right in any other book.
#4: The paired-pages format lets you set your own pace
Murach books have a distinctive format, where each two-page spread presents a single topic. Both beginning and experienced developers find that this format makes it easy to focus on the information they need, whether they’re using the book for training or reference. To see how this works, you can download sample chapters for free from the Murach web site. –This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
