Java Software Solutions: Foundations of Program Design
This book takes an object-oriented approach to Java using it in a way that is appropriate for those just learning to write high-quality programs. The book features both text-based and GUI-based examples to demonstrate computing concepts and provide readers with maximum versatility. This title has an early evolution of object concepts, developed in a way that capitalizes on the power of objects without overwhelming beginning programmers.
