This text takes a logical approach to the presentation of core topics, moving step-by-step from the basics to more advanced material, with objects being introduced at the appropriate time. The book is divided into three parts:
- Part One covers the elements of the Java language and the fundamentals of programming. An introduction to object-oriented design is also included.
- Part Two introduces GUI (Graphical User Interface) programming using Swing.
- Part Three explores key aspects of Java's API (Application Programming Interface) library, including the Collections Framework and the concurrency API.
