Java Programming Fundamentals teaches beginners the basics of Java programming without assuming previous experience in any other language. Many programming novices are learning Java as their 'first language;' in fact, Java will soon be the only language supporting AP Computer Science curriculum, beginning with the 2003-2004 academic year. Through relevant, hands-on examples and an informal, easy-to-follow style, this book presents the fundamental concepts of Java programming, from basic applets and applications to more complex programs and advanced object-oriented topics. The companion CD-ROM includes sample projects, source code for selected examples covered in the book, and Sun's Java 2 SDK, Version 1.3.1.
