Description

For courses in computer programming and engineering.

Beginner to Intermediate Programming in Java

This book is designed to serve as a textbook and reference for programming in the Java language. Although it does include programming techniques, it is organised around the features of the Java language rather than any particular curriculum of programming techniques. The main audience is undergraduate students who have not had extensive programming experience with the Java language. 

The introductory chapters are written at a level that is accessible to beginners, while the boxed sections of those chapters serve to quickly introduce more experienced programmers to basic Java syntax. Later chapters are still designed to be accessible, but are written at a level suitable for students who have progressed to these more advanced topics.

New to this edition

A text that is highly up-to-date with the recent developments and use of Java

  • Introduction to functional programming with Java 8’s lambda expressions.
  • Content and examples have been added to the text on looping, networking, and exception handling.
  • Introduction to building GUIs using JavaFX.
  • Introduces modern programming topics such as UML, multithreading, and servlets.

Extensive pedagogy helps students grasp the concepts of Java

  • 15 Programming projects challenge readers to design and implement a Java program to solve a programming problem.

Supplementary software helps students grasp text concepts

  • Five VideoNotes have been added to the text that indicate supplementary step-by-step video tutorials for key information. Each video covers a specific topic and offers a solution to selected programming projects. They are indicated by an icon in the text.
Features & benefits

Absolute Java uses the following features to facilitate learning:

Friendly and accessible language presents material clearly to students who may not have previous experience in Java.

  • The text extensively explores encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism as it is recognized by the Java language in an accessible, easily understandable way.
