Objects First with Java: A Practical Introduction Using BlueJ
Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2006 - Computers - 480 pages
The book has a very clear identity.
It takes a truly objects first approach to teaching problem solving using Java. These are complicated concepts so the book uses the development environment BlueJ to help the student's understanding. BlueJ has a strong emphasis on visualization and interaction techniques, and allows the students to manipulate objects and call methods as a first exercise. BlueJ is free and freely available, and has been developed specifically for teaching.The book is loaded with projects so that the student can really get a grip on actually solving problems; and it takes a "spiral approach", introducing a topic in a simple context early on, then revisiting it later in the book to deepen understanding. It also comes with a CD containing JDK, BlueJ, a BlueJ tutorial and code for all the projects. The website contains style guide for all examples, PowerPoints for lecturers and also a Solutions Manual.
