Summary and Info
Destined to become a classic, this tutorial guides you through the fundamentals and the advanced aspects of Java. Author Bruce Eckel uses the same style, format, incisive prose and clear examples as he did in Thinking in C++. He doesn't just teach how to write code, he teaches how to think and program in Java. This highly recommended text is designed for those familiar with programming concepts and object-orientation. Eckel covers objects, program flow, error handling, network programming and design patterns. He includes details on the cornerstones of Java and OOP, with polymorphism, implementation hiding, class differentiation and reuse. He also covers passing/returning objects and running multiple concurrent subtasks.
