The Little Book of Java Programming

As I write this, the sun is shining, the birds are tweeting and I can see primroses in the grass outside my window. Here in Britain, spring has finally arrived! And when spring arrives, I always feel it really is time to start work on something new. I have a few new projects lined up, some of which I’ll tell you about later in the year. But I’ve also just finished a book. My latest release is called The Little Book Of Java and it should be the perfect thing (I hope!) for anyone who wants to learn to program in Java quickly and easily.

As always, I’ve tried to get right to the heart of the topic without bombarding the reader with lots of information (class libraries, method listings and so on) that you can easily find online.

The Little Book Of Java explains Object Orientation, classes, methods, generic lists and dictionaries, file operations, serialization and exception-handling, creating commandline and 'visual' form-based applications. You can download the source code ready to run at the commandline or load into an IDE (the free NetBeans IDE is recommended).

Topics covered include...

  • Fundamentals of Java
  • Object Orientation
  • Classes and Class Hierarchies
  • Variables, Types, Constants
  • Operators & Tests
  • Methods & Arguments
  • Constructors
  • Access Modifiers
  • Arrays & Strings
  • Loops & Conditions
  • Files & Directories
  • structs & enums
  • Overloaded and overridden methods
  • Exception-handling
  • Lists & Generics
  • Streams & Serialization
  • ...and much more
