Java How to Program, Sixth Edition

The complete authoritative Deitel® Live Code introduction to programming with the new Java 2 Platform Standard Edition 5.0!

Java How to Program, Sixth Edition was a joy to create. To start, we put the fifth edition of Java How to Program under the microscope:

  • We audited the presentation against the most recent ACM/IEEE curriculum recommendations and the Computer Science Advanced Placement Examination.
  • All of the chapters have been significantly updated and upgraded.
  • We changed to an early classes and objects pedagogy. Now students build their first reusable classes starting in
    Chapter 3.
  • All of the GUI and graphics in the early chapters has been replaced by carefully paced optional sections in Chapters 3-10 with two special exercise sections in Chapters 11 and 12. Instructors have a broad choice of the amount of GUI and graphics to cover—from none, to a 10-section introductory sequence, to a deep treatment in Chapters 11, 12 and 22.
  • We updated our object-oriented presentation to use the latest version of the UML (Unified Modeling Language)—UML™ 2.0—the industry-standard graphical language for modeling object-oriented systems.
  • We replaced the optional elevator simulator case study from the previous edition with a new optional OOD/UML
    automated teller machine (ATM) case study in Chapters 18 and 10. The new case study is much simpler and more attractive for first and second programming courses.
  • Several multi-section object-oriented programming case studies have been added.
  • We incorporated key new features of Sun Microsystems' latest release of Java—the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition version 5.0 (J2SE 5.0).
  • The design of the book has been completely revised. This new design uses color, fonts and various design elements to enhance a student's learning experience.
  • All of this has been carefully scrutinized by a team of 37 distinguished academic and industry reviewers.

[Note: For courses based on the current version of Java 1.4.1, Java How to Program, Fifth Edition is still available in print.]

We want to hear from you: If you would like to submit your comments and/or suggestions about the content for this new edition, please e-mail us at deitel@deitel.com and insert "Java How to Program, Sixth Edition" in the subject line.

Pre-publication reviewer comments:

"Does an excellent job describing the new features included in JDK 5.0..."

~Doug Kohlert, Sun Microsystems

"The optional Graphics & GUI case study track introduces students to some of the more fun things in Java! Working with color, graphics and GUI always gets their attention!"

~Karen Arlien, Bismark State College

"I teach Java programming and object-oriented analysis and design. The optional UML/OOD case study is the best presentation of the ATM example I have seen. ... Classes are introduced early. The authors separate the functionality and the testing of the class, emphasizing good program design principles."

~Craig W. Slinkman, U. of Texas-Arlington

"A well-written presentation of object-based programming principles. A must-read for every aspiring programmer."
~Marita Ellixson, Eglin AFB, Univ. of Arkansas, Indiana Wesleyan Univ., Lead Facilitator

"Probably the most complete coverage of learning through examples in published material today. This material is such high quality-it is unbelievable. The ATM example is super!"

~Anne Horton, AT&T Bell Laboratories

"Introduces OOP early without burying the reader in complexity. The conceptual level is perfect. This will be a great help the next time I teach 101. ...I was introduced to JHTP by my students who pleaded with me to drop our assigned text in favor of JHTP. No other text comes close to its quality of organization and presentation. The Live-Code approach to presenting exemplary code makes a big difference in the learning outcome."

~Walt Bunch, Chapman University

"The UML material is very well done and a huge asset."

~Gavin Osborne, Saskatchewan Institute
