Software consists of programs and the data those programs use. Software is the intangible counterpart to the physical hardware components. Together they form a tool that we can use to solve problems. The key hardware components in a computer system are: ◗ central processing unit (CPU) ◗ input/output (I/O) devices ◗ main memory ◗ secondary memory devices Each of these hardware components is described in detail in the next section. For now, let’s simply examine their basic roles. The central processing unit (CPU) is the device that executes the individual commands of a program. Download (pdf, 1. 7 Mb) Donate Read.

Using Java™ ., Java Software Solutions teaches beginning programmers how to design and implement high-quality .

Using Java™ ., Java Software Solutions teaches beginning programmers how to design and implement high-quality object-oriented software. John Lewis and Bill Loftus wrote this book from the ground up, taking full advantage of Java to teach introductory programming. Throughout the book, the authors intertwine the use of applets and applications to demonstrate computing concepts.

John Lewis and William Loftus have expanded their coverage of classes and objects . Lewis' area of specialization is Software Engineering, with a particular focus on web-based software development.

Applets and applications are intertwined throughout the book to demonstrate computing concepts. He regularly teaches courses in Object-Oriented Design, Software Engineering, and Algorithms & Data Structures.

This book takes an object-oriented approach to Java using the Java 1.5 release in a way that is appropriate for those just learning to write high-quality programs. The book features both text-based and GUI-based examples to demonstrate computing concepts and provide readers with maximum versatility. This new edition has an earlier evolution of object concepts, developed in a way that capitalizes on the power of objects without overwhelming beginning programmers. It places less empahsis on applets and more emphasis on GUI-based applications, while still maintaining a clean division between graphical and non-graphical topics. This book is appropriate for beginning programmers who want to learn to program with Java as well as experienced programmers who want to add Java to their skill-set.
  • I've gone through the first three chapters (6th Edition) and I've found quite a few errors, which I will summarize here:

    page 66, Listing 2.5: Attempts to define a class with only the name of the class (no "public" or "class"). This will not compile as written.

    page 68, Listing 2.6: Attempts to define a class with "publicclass" (yes, as one word). This will not compile as written.

    page 96, Listing 2.10: Attempts to define a JApplet class with "Einstein JApplet" (again leaves out necessary reserved words, and most importantly I have no idea where to put the "extends" reserved word). This will not compile as written.

    page 102, Listing 2.11: Same problem as the last one.

    page 129, bottom paragraph (refers to writing code to solve a quadratic equation): "Note that this program assumes that the discriminant (the value under the square root) is negative. If it's not negative, the results will not be a valid number, which Java represents as NaN, which stands for not a number." This claims that you can only take the square root of a negative number, which is in fact the opposite of what anyone with a high-school math education could tell you.

    I'm pretty worried about what other errors lie in wait for me as I continue through the book. This is some really terrible proof-reading work. The only reason I didn't give it one star is that the end-of-chapter projects are quite useful for learning to write your own code and practice the different techniques presented. So it's not completely useless.

  • Let me preface by saying that I am taking an intro to Java class at a university ranked top 10 for its CS program.
    Let me also preface by saying I didn't know ANYTHING when I first walked into this class.

    Difference between this and the 7th edition: completely minimal. A friend and I have been able to use the same glossary to find what we need, if that's any indication. So save money and buy this one.

    The book can be summarized as follows-
    - jack of all trades. It barely scrapes the tip of the iceberg on almost every topic in Java. Often doesn't go into a lot of detail, and glosses over some basics- what I mean is that for most concepts, I find that there is only half a page to a page of explanation before moving onto something completely different. For example, there's not too much on constructors (I struggled through the meaning of this concept for half a semester before I understood, really), and nothing on constructor chaining.

    -doesn't do correct javadoc'ing in here

    This book is best if you have experience in programming, though the first third is reaally basic, like parts of a computer, bits and bytes and primitive data types, what strings are, etc. Then it gets better. From what I've learned, Java is a hard class to teach and amongst my programmer friends, Java is also the least favorite language for its syntax.

    But really, just take it with a grain of salt. We all know the key to unlocking a language is practice, and this book has great practice problems. I just wish I had the companion answer or instructor manual, because that would be SO helpful.

  • I am about half way through this book and so far it gets two thumbs up from me. This is my second programming book, my first was 'Python Programming for the absolute beginner(2ed)' by Michael Dawson, which i thought was excellent, especially for the price! If you are utterly new to the programming scene and don't want to learn a particular language i would recommend that book because it's great at explaining basic programming concepts, and Python is a relatively easy language to pick up. But enough about that, let's talk about this book and why i think it's a great learning resource and have no idea why some people gave it one star(even after reading their explanations).

    the GOOD:
    ~no BS, no "let's add jokes to every other paragraph in the book when it's not necessary to make it appeal more to the masses" who the publishers must think are idiots or dummies;) This is a textbook, it reads like one, there is no program jargon that isn't explained in the text. Wow, a book that treats me like an adult, yaya.
    ~great layout, before every chapter you're given bullet points of what that chapter consist of
    ~all chapters are layed out in a clear fashion
    ~lots of color, great examples, charts, etc
    ~Tons of examples, and the examples are in color, similiar to how they will look in your IDE(i use NetBeans).
    ~key concepts throughout every chapter
    ~end of chapter programming projects to work through(actual hands on coding)
    ~end of section word problems(all answers supplied in back of book)
    ~comes with a cd including different IDE's and the java language
    ~and probably my favorite feature(which no one has mentioned); VIDEO NOTES! Usually about 5-6 a chapter, accessed through the website provided by the book. These video notes are the author actually working through some of the sample code and atleast one of the programming projects at the end of the chapter. Again, there are video notes for all chapters, very well done, he takes you through the most important aspects of each chapter by using code, very hands on. There are about 5 mins a video, and he doesn't rush through it. I found the feature to be extremly beneficial when ever i felt lost.

    the BAD:
    ~none really come to mind, maybe more video notes would be nice.

    Bottom line: This is a great book, java is an interesting and beneficial language to learn, i definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in learning java. This book doesn't treat you like a child, nor an expert, just an adult who wants to learn java.
