  PTR Overview

  Thinking in Java, Second Edition is the much-anticipated revision of Bruce Eckel's best-selling introduction to Java: the book that won the 1999 Software Development Magazine Productivity Award, and the Java Developer's Journal Editor's Choice Award for best book of 1998! Eckel is as brash, opinionated, knowledgeable, and fascinating as ever -- and he's updated this new edition to fully reflect the power of Java 2.KEY TOPICS:Like the best-selling first edition, Thinking in Java helps you understand not just what to do, but why. Eckel introduces all the basics of objects as Java uses them; then walks carefully through the fundamental concepts underlying all Java programming -- including program flow, initialization and cleanup, implementation hiding, reusing classes, and polymorphism. Using extensive, to-the-point examples, he introduces exception handling, Java I/O, run-time type identification, and passing and returning objects. This new edition adds exceptional coverage of server-side Java, including servlets and JavaServer pages; and new introductions to Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), Jini and JavaSpaces, Sun's cutting-edge technologies for building more robust, diverse networks. The AWT chapter has been replaced with a detailed introduction to the Swing GUI libraries; there is thorough coverage of the new Java 2 collections. All of Eckel's code samples are on the accompanying CD-ROM, along with the book on CD-ROM in several electronic formats -- plus a complete multimedia course that introduces the underlying concepts every programmer needs to master before working with Java: Thinking in C: Foundations for C++ & Java.MARKET:For all beginners and experienced programmers who want to master Java. top


  Reader Review

  'This book is a tremendous achievement. You owe it to yourself to have a copy on your shelf. The chapter on iostreams is the most comprehensive and understandable treatment of that subject I've seen to date.'-- Al Stevens Contributing Editor, Doctor Dobbs Journal

'Eckel's book is the only one to so clearly explain how to rethink program construction for object orientation. That the book is also an excellent tutorial on the ins and outs of C++ is an added bonus.'-- Andrew Binstock Editor, Unix Review

  'Bruce continues to amaze me with his insight into C++, and Thinking in C++ is his best collection of ideas yet. If you want clear answers to difficult questions about C++, buy this outstanding book.'-- Gary Entsminger Author, The Tao of Objects

  'Thinking in C++ patiently and methodically explores the issues of when and how to use inlines, references, operator overloading, inheritance, and dynamic objects, as well as advanced topics such as the proper use of templates, exceptions and multiple inheritance. The entire effort is woven in a fabric that includes Eckel's own philosophy of object and program design. A must for every C++ developer's bookshelf, Thinking in C++ is the one C++ you must have if you're doing serious development with C++.'-- Richard Hale Shaw Contributing Editor, PC Magazine
