Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Best-selling programming author Herb Schildt begins with the basics, such as how to create, compile, and run a Java program. He then moves on to the keywords, syntax, and constructs that form the core of the Java language. The book also covers some of Java's more advanced features, including multithreaded programming, generics, lambda expressions, modules, and Swing.
As an added bonus, an introduction to JShell, Java's interactive programming tool, is included. Best of all, it's written in the clear, crisp, uncompromising style that has made Schildt the choice of millions worldwide. Read more Read less. Frequently bought together. Add all three to Cart.

On the "first simple program" I am left clueless. The author states "1. Enter the program, 2. Compile the program, 3. Run the program". If you have some experience or training in programming this book will probably be somewhat easy to follow.
But for those like me with absolutely "No previous programming experience" this book fails at the start. Particularly if it involves a serious subject matter. The author is perhaps a great programmer, but he's not a great teacher. For those like me, it's best to consider either a classroom setting or the Dummies series of books. This book is capable of teaching anyone that really has the desire to learn.
Too many books are filled with excess chat chit. Very easy to follow. Like many Java textbooks, the book is not really written for the non-programmer. That does not mean it can't be used as a text in a class for beginners-- but the students would have to rely on faculty lectures to provide the "how-to-program" basics.
Its strengths are its clarity and its comprehensiveness in topic coverage. There are a couple of interesting aspects that should be noted. For example, unlike most texts, there is no mention of ArrayList.
The focus is on the language, not the library. The Scanner class is absent from the book. At the same time, the treatment of Streams and binary data is excellent There are plenty of justifications one could make for this approach; but it is something that should be kept in mind.
This book is not for inexperienced programmers as the title leads one to believe. The first few chapters do cover elementary topics, but it quickly transitions into highly advanced topics in programming. If you are new to the field of computer science, as I was when I purchased this book, then I suggest you look elsewhere. Very good introduction to Java and its newest features. This is not a book for learning how to program or learning about the object oriented paradigm.
It covers a wide range of basic topics from fundamentals, data types, control statements, abstract data types and exceptions. For the most of it, the book is very clear and uses small code examples to illustrate. Unfortunately, most advanced topics show impractical or just dumb examples that 'work' but don't really show how to take advantage of the features.
Read it if you need to catch up with the newest Java features. Keep in mind Java will continue updating every six months, so this book is already outdated. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
