Amazon.com description: Product Description
: Thinking in Java, Second Edition is the much-anticipated revision of Bruce Eckel's best-selling Java introduction: the book that won the 1999 Software Development Magazine Productivity Award! Eckel is as brash, opinionated, knowledgeable, and fascinating as ever -- and he's updated this new edition to fully reflect the power of Java 2. As always, Eckel doesn't just show you what to do, but why. He introduces all the basics of objects as Java uses them; then walks carefully through the fundamentals of Java programming, including program flow, initialization and cleanup, implementation hiding, reusing classes and polymorphism. Using to-the-point examples, he introduces exception handling, Java I/O, run-time type identification, and passing and returning objects. The new edition adds exceptional coverage of server-side Java, including servlets and JavaServer Pages; Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) database integration, transactions, and security; and much more. The AWT chapter has been replaced with a thorough introduction to the Swing GUI libraries, and there are new sections on Jini and JavaSpaces. All code examples are on the accompanying CD-ROM, plus electronic copies of the book in several formats, and the complete Thinking in C multimedia course, introducing key concepts all beginning programmers must master before learning Java.
