Java is currently among the most widely used programming languages. It is particularly popular among programming beginners, because the language is both powerful and free of error-prone concepts, such as pointer arithmetic.
This book is especially written for absolute programming beginners who have no previous knowledge of Java or other programming languages. It explains important programming concepts in an easy and comprehensive way, allowing programming beginners to familiarize themselves with the Java programming language very quickly. There are programming examples for every topic to reinforce the lessons. Furthermore, the book recommends more than sixty-five webpages that can help readers improve their Java coding skills.
The book includes advanced topics such as network programming, concurrency, and graphical user interfaces; the basics of these and other Java topics are presented in a beginner-friendly way.
"Learning by doing" is a reliable method for learning programming languages. In keeping with this method, the book offers exercises for all topics covered. You can apply your learning directly and intensify your knowledge of the Java programming language.
The book covers the following topics:
For courses in Java Programming.
A fundamentals-first introduction to basic programming concepts and techniques Â
Designed to support an introductory programming course,Â Introduction to Java Programming and Data Structures teaches you concepts of problem-solving and object-orientated programming using a fundamentals-first approach. Beginner programmers learn critical problem-solving techniques then move on to grasp the key concepts of object-oriented, GUI programming, data structures, and Web programming.Â This course approaches Java GUI programming using JavaFX, which has replaced Swing as the new GUI tool for developing cross-platform-rich Internet applications and is simpler to learn and use. TheÂ 11th editionÂ has been completely revised to enhance clarity and presentation, and includes new and expanded content, examples, and exercises.Â
Also available withÂ MyLabÂ Programming.
MyLabÂ Programmingâ¢Â is an online learning system designed to engage students and improve results.Â MyLabÂ ProgrammingÂ consists of programming exercises correlated to the concepts and objectives in this book. Through practice exercises and immediate, personalized feedback,Â MyLabÂ ProgrammingÂ improves the programming competence of beginning students who often struggle with the basic concepts of programming languages.

Daniel Liang teaches concepts of problem-solving and object-oriented programming using a fundamentals-first approach. Beginning programmers learn critical problem-solving techniques then move on to grasp the key concepts of object-oriented, GUI programming, advanced GUI and Web programming using Java. Liang approaches Java GUI programming using JavaFX, not only because JavaFX is much simpler for new Java programmers to learn and use but because it has replaced Swing as the new GUI tool for developing cross-platform-rich Internet applications on desktop computers, on hand-held devices, and on the Web. Additionally, for instructors, JavaFXprovidesÂ a better teaching tool for demonstrating object-oriented programming.
