Welcome to Java. This chapter launches you on a tour of this technology by focusing on fundamentals. First, you receive an answer to the “What is Java?” question. If you have not previously encountered Java, the answer might surprise you. Next, you are introduced to some basic tools that will help you start developing Java programs, and to the NetBeans integrated development environment, which simplifies the development of these programs. Finally, you explore fundamental language features.

What you’ll learn

  • The entire Java language, including Java 7-specific features such as switch on string, try-with-resources, final rethrow, multicatch, and SafeVarargs

  • How to create user interfaces, working with web services, and a whole lot more
