This second edition of Java, Java, Java offers a robust, accessible, and flexible problem-solving perspective. The use of Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams throughout the text, strongly emphasizes object-oriented design. This book assists students and professionals with their most challenging problem as beginning programmers: object abstraction, or how to use interacting objects and methods.
Using a top-down approach, the author focuses on problem decomposition and program design from the beginning. This methodology—along with its lucid and engaging exercises and analogies—sets this book apart. Morelli introduces advanced Java features including GUI's (e.g., AWT and Swing), exceptions, threads, files, and sockets. The adaptable and accessible style allows instructors to choose which advanced concepts to teach to introductory students, while intermediate-level programmers can benefit from its thorough, advanced feature coverage.
