Learning Java, Third Edition
Published: May 2005
Version 5.0 of the Java 2 Standard Edition SDK is the most important upgrade since Java first appeared a decade ago. With Java 5.0, you'll not only find substantial changes in the platform, but to the language itself-something that developers of Java took five years to complete. The main goal of Java 5.0 is to make it easier for you to develop safe, powerful code, but none of these improvements makes Java any easier to learn, even if you've programmed with Java for years. And that means our bestselling hands-on tutorial takes on even greater significance. Learning Java, 3rd Edition addresses all of the important uses of Java, such as web applications, servlets, and XML that are increasingly driving enterprise applications. The accompanying CD includes the Java 5.0 SDK for Windows, Linux and Solaris, plus the NetBeans IDE, and the many example programs from the book.

Simply Java: An Introduction To Java Programming (Programming Series)
Published: September 2005
Simply Java: An Introduction to Java Programming is an easy-to-follow textbook that guides beginning programmers step-by-step through the process of learning Java. The main obstacle to learning object-oriented programming is the volume of detail that needs to be learned before even the simplest program can be created. This text eliminates extraneous details early on and stresses only concepts students need to know. It teaches classes and objects from the outset, and presents programming as extended problem solving, making it easier to understand. Class design and graphical user interfaces are introduced early, but most of the detail is postponed until after students have a better grasp of objects, classes, and inheritance. Simply Java: An Introduction to Java Programming is the perfect text for anyone new to Java, looking for a comprehensive, easy-to-comprehend guide.
