Core Java has long been recognised as the leading no-nonsense tutorial and reliable reference. It carefully explains the most important language and library features and shows how to build real-world applications with thoroughly tested examples. The example programs have been carefully crafted to be easy to understand as well as useful in practice, so you can rely on them as the starting point for your own code. All of the code examples have been rewritten to reflect modern Java best practices and code style. The critical new features introduced with Java SE 9 are all thoroughly explored with the depth and completeness that readers expect from this title. Core Java Volume I walks readers through the all details and takes a deep dive into the most critical features of the language and core libraries.
