by Charlie McDowell,Ira Pohl




Enlisting the best-selling "by dissection" method of instruction, this book teaches programming techniques and presents the Java language in a sound and structured manner that is appropriate for both novice and seasoned programmers. It presents a thorough introduction to the programming process by carefully developing working programs to illuminate key features of the Java programming language. Program code is explained in an easy-to-follow manner throughout.

This book presents readers with a clear and thorough introduction to the programming process by carefully developing working Java programs, using the method of dissection. A dissection is similar to a structured walk-through of the code, with the intention of explaining newly encountered programming elements and idioms as found in working code to the reader. Key ideas are reinforced throughout by use in different contexts.

One of the worst qualities of computer books is their length. For some reason most books decide to talk about functions for 189 pages and what an integer is for 35. This book offers a clear introduction to the java language and manages to be less than an inch thick. The book is very well formatted and ordered and is pretty pleasant to read. And thankfully it is content to give one good sized example rather than 6 long cryptic ones.
However it is not an effective advanced reference. It fails to talk about RMI, JNI and reflection which are very useful advanced concepts that I would like to hear about from these authors.

This is a superb book for novice with some programming knowledge. It's not for those that picked up a programming book for the very first time - in another word, a virgin.
The book stands out in term of example explaination. Greatly recommended by a computer science student! UCSC RULES!!

The book is available and as the author I would suggest you come to cse.ucsc.edu/~pohl and look for the first three chapters which are downloadable as pdf to see if this suits your taste. Key features are teaching by dissection, just like my other books; several advanced examples using SWING and threading with a great introduction to synchronization largely written by Charlie McDowell an expert in this area; and our own terminal IO package.
