With a variety of interactive learning features and user-friendly pedagogy, the Third Edition provides a comprehensive introduction to programming using the most current version of Java. Throughout the text the authors incorporate an “active learning approach” which asks students to take an active role in their understanding of the language through the use of numerous interactive examples, exercises, and projects. Object-oriented programming concepts are developed progressively and reinforced through numerous Programming Activities, allowing students to fully understand and implement both basic and sophisticated techniques. In response to students growing interest in animation and visualization the text includes techniques for producing graphical output and animations beginning in Chapter 4 with applets and continuing throughout the text.
