Object-Oriented Programming and Java, 2nd Edition
Object-Oriented Programming and Java presents two important topics in contemporary software development: object-oriented programming and Java. This book takes a different teaching approach from most available literature, it begins with the description of real-world object interaction scenarios and explains how they can be translated, represented and executed using object-oriented programming paradigm.
Principally, Java is an object-oriented programming language. By establishing a solid foundation in the understanding of object-oriented programming concepts and their applications, the book provides readers with the pre-requisites for writing proper object-oriented programs using Java.
Object-Oriented Programming and Java covers the latest in Java technologies and is suitable for undergraduate or postgraduate courses on object-oriented technology, and in particular, using Java as a programming language for creating object-oriented programs.
From the reviews of the second edition:
“Practitioners in procedural languages looking for a smooth introduction to Java , along with lecturers in object orientation, will definitely appreciate this book. … aimed at students and software engineers wishing to learn object-oriented programming techniques. … Each chapter ends with a summary and a set of exercises to emphasize or further develop a particular theme in the chapter. … this book presents an excellent overview of object orientation; readers will find it well explained. It is a useful introduction to object-oriented software engineering.”
