A Modern Approach to Functional Programming Objects First with Java: A Practical Introduction is an introduction to object-oriented programming for beginners. The main focus of the book is general object-oriented and programming concepts from a software engineering perspective. The first chapters are written for readers with no programming experience with later chapters being more suitable for advanced or professional programmers. The Java programming language and BlueJ--the Java development environment -- are the two tools used throughout the book. BlueJ's clear visualization of classes and objects means that readers can immediately appreciate the differences between them and gain a much better understanding of the nature of an object than they would from simply reading source code. Unlike traditional textbooks, the chapters are not ordered by language features but by software development concepts. The Sixth Edition goes beyond just adding the new language constructs of Java 8. The book's exploration of this new language demonstrates a renaissance of functional ideas in modern programming. While functional programming isn't new in principle, it's seen a boost in popularity based on the current computer hardware available and the changing nature of projects programmers wish to tackle. Functional language constructs make it possible to efficiently automate currency, make use of multiple cores without much effort on the side of the programmer, are both more elegant and readable, and offer great potential in solving the issue of parallel hardware. Functional programming has become an essential part of the field, and Objects First with Java gives students a basic understanding of an area they'll need to master in order to succeed in the future.

The Elements of Java Style, written by renowned author Scott Ambler, Rogue Wave Software Vice President Alan Vermeulen, and a team of programmers from Rogue Wave, is for anyone who writes Java code. While there are many books that explain the syntax and basic use of Java, this book, first published in 2000, explains not just what you can do with the syntax, but what you ought to do. Just as Strunk and White's The Elements of Style provides rules of usage for the English language, this book provides a set of rules for Java practitioners to follow. While illustrating these rules with parallel examples of correct and incorrect usage, the book provides a collection of standards, conventions, and guidelines for writing solid Java code which will be easy to understand, maintain, and enhance. Anyone who writes Java code or plans to should have this book next to their computer.

Developing Web Information Systems brings together traditional system development methods that have been taught for many years on information systems and computer science courses with web/e-commerce development. It is the first book to bring together IS development and the web applications in a thorough and systematic way. There is a running case study that illustrates web IS development from start to finish. The case is easy to understand (a theatre) and results in a working web application. Most, if not all, analysis and design texts fall short of making that step into software. The book draws heavily on practical experiences of web-based IS development resulting from commercial system development, so as well as appealing to students and academics, it will also interest practitioners. The coverage of data management and e-business strategy gives the book the broader scope essential for understanding IS development properly in an Internet context. * First book to bring together IS development and web applications thoroughly and systematically. * Covers full development process from strategy, through analysis and design, to working software. * Interactive case study which can be accessed on author's website.

This book is suitable for use in a university-level first course in computing (CS1), as well as the increasingly popular course known as CS0. It is difficult for many students to master basic concepts in computer science and programming. A large portion of the confusion can be blamed on the complexity of the tools and materials that are traditionally used to teach CS1 and CS2. This textbook was written with a single overarching goal: to present the core concepts of computer science as simply as possible without being simplistic.

Written to appeal to both novice and veteran programmers, this complete and well-organized guide to the versatile and popular object-oriented programming language Java shows how to use it as a primary tool in many different aspects of one's programming work. It emphasizes the importance of good programming style—particularly the need to maintain an object's integrity from outside interference—and helps users harness the power of Java in object-oriented programming to create their own interesting and practical every-day applications. Discusses the basics of computer systems, and describes the fundamental elements of the Java language, with complete instructions on how to compile and run a simple program. Introduces fundamental object-oriented concepts, and shows how simple classes may be defined from scratch. Explores Java's exception-handling mechanism, and investigates Java's interface facility (i.e., polymorphism). Covers all Java applications, including use of the Abstract Windowing Toolkit, graphical programming, networking, and simulation. Includes numerous exercises, periodic reviews, case studies, and supporting visuals. For those in the computer science industry.

The Definitive Guide to Java Platform Best Practices–Updated for Java 7, 8, and 9 Java has changed dramatically since the previous edition of Effective Java was published shortly after the release of Java 6. This Jolt award-winning classic has now been thoroughly updated to take full advantage of the latest language and library features. The support in modern Java for multiple paradigms increases the need for specific best-practices advice, and this book delivers. As in previous editions, each chapter of Effective Java, Third Edition, consists of several “items,” each presented in the form of a short, stand-alone essay that provides specific advice, insight into Java platform subtleties, and updated code examples. The comprehensive descriptions and explanations for each item illuminate what to do, what not to do, and why. The third edition covers language and library features added in Java 7, 8, and 9, including the functional programming constructs that were added to its object-oriented roots. Many new items have been added, including a chapter devoted to lambdas and streams. New coverage includes Functional interfaces, lambda expressions, method references, and streams Default and static methods in interfaces Type inference, including the diamond operator for generic types The @SafeVarargs annotation The try-with-resources statement New library features such as the Optional interface, java.time, and the convenience factory methods for collections
