Learning to design objects effectively with Java is the goal of "Beginning Java Objects: From Concepts to Code, Second Edition," Plenty of titles dig into the Java language in massive detail, but this one takes the unique approach of stepping back and looking at fundamental object concepts first. Mastery of Java--from understanding the basic language features to building complete industrial-strength Java applications--emerges only after a thorough tour of thinking in objects. The first edition of B.J.O. has been a best seller; this second edition includes new material on the key features of J2SE 5, conceptual introductions to JDBC and J2EE, and an in-depth treatment of the critical design principles of model-data layer separation and model-view separation. Despite the plethora of beginning Java titles on the market, this book is truly unique in its coverage of three critical topics--object concepts, UML modeling, and Java programming--within a single cover. It's ideal for both individual self-study and as a university-level textbook. Let "Beginning Java Objects, Second Edition" be your guide!Barker, Jacquie is the author of 'Beginning Java Objects From Concepts to Code', published 2005 under ISBN 9781590594575 and ISBN 1590594576.
