This comprehensive guide shows you how to master the most importantchanges to Java since it was first released. Generics and the greatlyexpanded collection libraries have tremendously increased the power ofJava 5 and Java 6. But they have also confused many developers whohaven't known how to take advantage of these new features.
Java Generics and Collections covers everything from the mostbasic uses of generics to the strangest corner cases. It teaches youeverything you need to know about the collections libraries, so you'llalways know which collection is appropriate for any given task, andhow to use it.
Topics covered include:
Generics and the new collection libraries they inspired take Java to anew level. If you want to take your software development practice toa new level, this book is essential reading.
Philip Wadler is Professor of Theoretical Computer Science at theUniversity of Edinburgh, where his research focuses on the design ofprogramming languages. He is a co-designer of GJ, work thatbecame the basis for generics in Sun's Java 5.0.
Maurice Naftalin is Technical Director at Morningside Light Ltd., a software consultancy in the United Kingdom. He has most recently served as an architect and mentor at NSB Retail Systems plc, and as the leader of the client development team of a major UK government social service system.
"A brilliant exposition of generics. By far the best book on thetopic, it provides a crystal clear tutorial that starts with thebasics and ends leaving the reader with a deep understanding of boththe use and design of generics."Gilad Bracha, Java Generics Lead, Sun Microsystems
Mastering Lambdas: Java Programming in a Multicore World describes how the lambda-related features of Java SE 8 will enable Java to meet the challenges of next-generation parallel hardware architectures. The book explains how to write lambdas, and how to use them in streams and in collection processing, providing code examples throughout. You'll learn how to use lambda expressions to take full advantage of performance improvements provided by today's multicore hardware. This Oracle Press book covers:
Trusted authors Savitch and Carrano examine problem solving and programming techniques with Java.
Readers are introduced to object-oriented programming and important concepts such as testing and debugging techniques, program style, inheritance, and exception handling. More emphasis on design and algorithms before coding in programming examples and case studies. More attention given to using methods prior to defining methods. Coverage of enumerations and the for-each loop.. Additional coverage of interfaces and polymorphism New glossary of terms.. A useful reference for programmers who need to brush up their Java skills.
This bundle combines two instructional Java books into one:Â
These are the first two books in a series dedicated to learning about Java and Java programming. Java is a simple yet powerful programming language, taught in colleges and used by companies all over the world. It is one of the most common programming languages used in modern business, and a graspable entry into the object-oriented class of programming languages. This book will take you from complete novice to knowledgeable beginner, with an appreciation for the history behind Java development. You will finish this entry in the series with the tools and building blocks necessary to write simple Java programs, and the foundation of learning necessary to advance to the intermediate, more complex facets of Java smoothly and seamlessly.Â
This book covers some of the following topics:Â
...and many more aspects of the powerful Java language. Whether your end goal is to work in Silicon Valley, create games, or build your own app - every journey begins with a single step. Take the first couple of steps on your journey to harness the power of code!Â
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
This is the third edition of the popular computer science textbook Java Methods. The book offers a thorough introduction to the concepts and practices of object-oriented programming in Java. It also introduces the most common data structures and related algorithms and their implementations in the Java collections framework.
Chapters 1-14 follow the syllabus of the AP Computer Science course. They will prepare you well for the AP CS exam. Chapters 15-18 on file input and output, graphics, graphical user interfaces, and events handling in Java will give you a better sense of real-world Java programming; this material also makes case studies, labs, and exercises more fun. Chapters 19-26 deal with more advanced data structures and algorithms. Chapter 27, Design Patterns, discusses more intricate aspects of object-oriented design and serves as an introduction to design patterns, and Chapter 28, Computing in Context, addresses the issues of creative, responsible, and ethical computer use.
The book follows four main threads: Java syntax and style, OOP concepts and techniques, algorithms, and Java libraries. As in the software engineering profession itself, these threads are interwoven into an inseparable braid.
Working through this book will not make you a Java expert right away, but it will bring you to the level of an entry-level Java programmer with a better than average understanding of the fundamental concepts.
