The third edition of the successful textbook, Java in Two Semesters, provides a comprehensive treatment of object-oriented programming, covering both introductory material and the more advanced topics of a second level course. Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest release of Java language, the new edition covers the most recent developments in Java programming. The book's comprehensive coverage allows it to be tailored to suit a range of Java modules of differing lengths and levels and can also serves as an excellent student reference text. Part One takes the student through simple programming concepts, such as variables, control structures and arrays before moving on to focus on classes and objects, inheritance and polymorphism. Part Two introduces topics such as advanced graphics programming, exceptions, threads, file handling, network programming and programming for mobile devices.
Extensively revised, the new Second Edition of Programming and Problem Solving with Java continues to be the most student-friendly text available. The authors broke the text into smaller, more manageable pieces through chapter reorganization, allowing students to focus more sharply on the important information at hand. Using Dale and Weems' effective "progressive objects" approach, students begin with simple yet useful class design in parallel with the introduction of Java's basic data types, arithmetic operations, control structures, and file I/O. Students see firsthand how the library of objects steadily grows larger, enabling increasingly sophisticated applications to be developed through reuse.
An introductory book organised as a course covering one semester, designed for level one undergraduate or sub-degree students taking a first course in software development or programming. The topic is taught from first principles and assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. The project has been conceived in response to an overwhelming need for a book that provides a gentle introduction to software development and programming; in particular, it aims at the type of student entering university with no background in the subject matter, often coming from sub-degree courses in other disciplines, or perhaps returning to study after long periods away from formal education. It is the authors' experience that such students have enormous difficulties in grasping the fundamental programming concepts the first time round, and therefore require a simpler and gentler introduction to the subject than is presented in most standard texts. Thus, after briefly introducing the key concepts of object-orientation, the book concentrates on the very simple programming concepts such as declarations of variables and basic control structures. After covering these essential ideas the book returns to look at classes and objects in more detail. Throughout it uses Java as the vehicle for the teaching of these programming principles. Code examples are therefore intended to convey programming concepts as well as explaining the use of the language. The book does more than concentrate on programming issues alone; it takes an integrated approach to software development by also covering basic design principles and standards such as the use of UML (for design on the macro level) and pseudo-code (for design on the micro level). It also introduces testing methodologies, HCI, applets and event-driven visual programming. This differs from most other introductory textbooks on the subject, which tend to concentrate either on development methodologies or on programming. The book is intended to support a 12 week, one semester, introductory course, with practical exercises (suitable for two hour lab sessions) and tutorial examples (suitable for one hour tutorial sessions) with solutions, worked examples and references.
This Learning to Program Java text book is designed as the first course of a two semester course in Java programming. Selected topics from the Java programming language are introduced to facilitate a beginner programming in Java. All exercises are programming problems. Programming problems are used as exercises to enforce a programming paradigm. A high percent of learning to program is highly correlated with the practice of designing and implementing programs for specific requirements. The translator or compiler will enhance the student knowledge through the trail and error process of removing errors from their programs. Emphasis is on defining Java constructs and their use in programming. Students are encouraged to program all the exercises at the end of each Chapter. Also students are encouraged to program their own applications to enhance their knowledge base. The idea is to program as many applications as possible using various Java constructs to improve programming skills in the Java programming language. Emphasis is placed on programming applications requirements. To enforce this paradigm Chapters are organized to maximize the learning process. Chapters on Exceptions and File Input and Output are introduced early in the text. After the file input and output are introduced all programs should read and write files to devices to maximize the learning experience.
This book assumes very little or no knowledge of how computers work, and shows how to write understandable programs in Java. Even though most readers will not wish to become professional programmers, programming is fun and useful, and, in today's world it is important for professionals in any field to appreciate what computers can (and cannot) do well. To reach this level of understanding, Per Brinch Hansen goes beyond the routine skills of a computer user and explains the art of programming in some depth, allowing readers to write Java programs for use on the WWW or company's Intranet. Although a book about programming with Java, the same methods can be used for systematic programming in such languages as C, Fortran, and Pascal. The book makes a splendid text for a one semester course on beginning programming and is backed by teaching aids available at the author's Website.

An Introduction to Computer Science Using Java by Kamin and Mickunas is designed for a CS1/Intro to Programming course in which java is used. The authors emphasize the process of programming, which involves teaching students how to develop correct, efficient, well-structed and stylish programs. This edition has been overhauled to teach objects early and aggressively. In order to enable this approach, the authors have developed their own library of classes that they provide with the book, called CSLib. GUI-based applications are taught at the beginning of the book and applets and the AWT are introduced later. One of the unique aspects of the text are the debugging sections. In appropriate places throughout the text, the authors provide students with information on debugging. In addition, there are such pedagogical aids as warning signs, and wide range of exercises. They have also added additional quick review exercises throughout the chapter.
