The Java language has been growing from strength to strength since its inception in 1995. It has since proved to be both powerful and extraordinarily easy to learn and use. This is what makes it ideal for the beginner. With dramatic changes to its handling of files, and the introduction of native support for XML, Java has been updated to work faster and to be current with the incredible rise of XML as a medium for communicating data. This edition of the "Beginning Java" books outlines everything the beginning programmer needs to know to program with the Java programming language and the 1.4 Java Developer Kit. With the release of JDK 1.4, programmers can look forward to the most stable edition yet, and even better performance than was available previously. This book teaches Java from scratch and assumes no previous knowledge. It is also suitable for those who have got some programming experience, especially C or C++, which will make learning easier. Either way you should soon become expert in creating your own programs.


"In all the years I have been programming and teaching people about computers, I have never come across a language that offers the power and flexibility of Java and all for free! Java is an extraordinarily easy language to learn and use, and is ideal for the beginner.
With the latest edition of Java, some things are a lot easier, but the new and improved classes mean you can do so much more! Whether it's creating graphic rich and interactive web pages or creating full-featured Windows applications, you can do it with Java. With my book you can learn Java plus the techniques you need for success with your own projects.
Nothing worthwhile is achieved without effort. You'll need to put in the work and have the ambition to succeed when the going gets tough. If you have commitment, I can help you become a competent Java programmer."
Who is this book for
This book is for anyone who wants to learn to create real-world applications with Java. The Beginning Java series has proven popular with over 150,000 people with its tutorial format. The numerous step-by-step examples provide you with an understanding of the ins and outs of programming with Java.
We assume no previous programming experience, although progress will be easier if you have programmed before. Either way, you'll soon become an expert in creating your own Java programs.
What this book will teach you
This book will teach you all you need to know to start programming in Java. This latest edition of my series teaches Java with the Java 2 SDK 1.4; a free Software Development Kit for creating Java applications.
* The code is designed and tested for use with the latest SDK - J2SDK 1.4.
* Teaches the Java language from scratch.
* Handling Errors and Exceptions in applications.
* Manipulating data and files.
* Concurrent programming and Threads.
* Comprehensive introduction to Swing, the Graphical User Interface API for Java. We will learn both about standalone applications and applets: embedded Java programs for web pages.
* Large GUI example: We will create a program called Sketcher: a simple drawing tool for making sketches. We will learn how to save sketches to and load sketches from files, use color in our applications, and respond to user input.
* Printing in Java.
* Now included: an introduction to XML - an exciting technology for representing data. We will modify the sketcher application to use XML. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

3 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ning Zhao am 18. Dezember 2002
Format: Taschenbuch
It covers the all the major parts in Java 1.4 Standard Edition in a great detail, the author theaches you step by step, and many COMPLETE examples are there for you to try out. The writing style is very inviting and accessible, everything clearly explained and easy to understand. I have used this book along with a course in my university, it does a very good job. What's more, it also suggests further reading and you would learn where and how to get the java resource via the internet.
I especially appreciate Chaptle 15: Java Threads in this book. Concurrent programming is never a piece of cake for most of the learners, Mr. Horton offered a very good introduction and guide to this field, a nice enlightenment.

This is a book best suited for the beginning programmer who has chosen java. everything is explained in a perfect depth of detail. you wont get bored but everytime you think "how was it done once again?" he will certainly repeat it right after. for me as a student of computer science it worked perfectly. and it was better than a lot of other books i read.

hope this helps ;-)

Well written and comprehensive 29. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
There is a lot to like about "Beginning Java 2." It provides excruciatingly detailed coverage of Java, written in a clear, intelligent way. The author does an effective job of tempering the extensively technical content with a friendly writing style that is never flip or insulting to the reader.
I also appreciate the abundance of examples, illustrations, and diagrams, which support the text well and are easy to read. Pertinent code samples are shaded in gray, which enhances readability. Diagrams are clear and and are supported with well-written callouts.
Although the book's title is "Beginning Java 2," it could be daunting to readers with little or no programming background, especially as they progress beyond the first two chapters. Chapter 1 provides an excellent introduction to Java and object-oriented programming concepts. The first part of Chapter 2 provides a good introduction to variables and data types. About the middle of Chapter 2, however, when the author begins discussing additional mathematical concepts, the reader is led into deeper waters and at this point, "absolute" beginners may start to feel overwhelmed. This doesn't mean that they should abandon the book, but they may need to take additional time to absorb the concepts.
Each chapter concludes with a summary of its content and several practice exercises. Although such practice is certainly valuable, I would have liked to see an additional appendix with "answers" to the exercises so that readers could check their work and benefit from the author's expertise. Without such author feedback, the exercises are less effective as learning tools.
Overall, I see "Beginning Java 2" as a potentially valuable addition to the bookshelf of any programmer new to Java. I recommend it with some caution to "absolute" beginners -- although with patience, determination, and a commitment to learn, they, too, may find the book very beneficial.

Best book to learn Java 30. März 2002
Von Thomas Paul - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Ivor Horton has once again produced an exceptional beginner's book for Java. I have reviewed many beginner books on Java in the search for a textbook for an "Introduction to Java" class that I teach at Hofstra University. Few of these books have met the goal of providing a solid base of knowledge upon which a programmer can build. Ivor Horton's "Beginning Java" is one of those few. This book is an excellent introduction to Java for anyone who has a basic understanding of programming and is willing to apply some effort to learn the language. Horton proceeds at a rapid pace to cover virtually every important topic in Java outside of the Enterprise Edition. Starting with the basics of the Java language Horton explains the Java syntax in great detail. He then goes on to cover exceptions, streams, utility classes, threads, GUI (with a concentration on Swing), and file processing. In addition, Horton covers all the important new features of the 1.4 release including more than 100 pages on XML. Each chapter builds upon the previous chapter using extensive, well designed and clearly explained examples. Although the book covers a wide range of topics, it does not treat any of them lightly. Many introductory books fall short in the very important topic of object oriented technique. Horton does an excellent job of both explaining OO and then using it in his many examples. Unlike other books that you may read and discard, this is a book that will continue to provide help far into your Java career.

Hey all you Java beginners, read this review before u buy... 29. November 2002
Von Phillip Schwarzmann - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Warning to all you Java beginners: Don't expect to read this book and immediately graduate to an "intermediate" Java programmer - ESPECIALLY if you're new to programming and/or object-oriented programming.
This book gives you a fairly good introduction to the basics of Java; Ivor Horton is a bit "dry" but does the job. If you don't have experience with object oriented design (like C++), you'll NEED to also purchase, "Beginning Java Objects" by Jacquie Barker. And when I say "NEED", I mean NEED!! Jacquie's book is absolutely ESSENTIAL for any person new to objects.
It is impossible to fit all the beginning Java topics into one book (even if it is 1200+ pages) and Ivor doesn't try too. He goes over threading and Swing but you'll need to seperate books for these topics.
Another warning for Java newbies: Beginning Java topics can be quite boring, I'm sure many will want to jump straight to the cool stuff like Swing, JSP/Servlets, J2ME...but you MUST understand objects, java terminology, and other basic principles FIRST. You may want to check out books like "Java Cookbook", "Design Patterns Java Workbook", "Design Patterns Explained", "Objected Oriented Thought Process" and especially "Beginning Java Objects" to complement Ivor's book.
I gave this book 4 stars because "beginning" books should take you by the hand and babystep you through the process (in my opinion), this book doesn't quite do this (Jacquie's book does). You may feel more comfortable with one of these "dummies" or "teach yourself in 21 days" or "Java Bible" instead (though I haven't read any of these). But stay away from the "Core series" or "O'Reilly" books if you don't want something too hard.
To learn Java you're gonna need to drop some $$ on a bunch of books and you'll need to spend some SERIOUS time practicing, but as Ivor Horton says, "Nothing worthwile is achieved without effort. You'll need to put in the work and have the ambition to succeed when the going gets tough."

Good introduction to Java but lacking in certain aspects 10. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a pretty good introduction to Java, especially for beginners. However I would like to point out certain drawbacks of the book:
1)As the previous reviewer pointed out, Horton uses too much of math to illustrate his examples. He'd be better off tackling real-world problems.
2)Lot of coverage is given to Input/output streams, filing, printing etc. Infact these topics span 3 chapters in the book which is a bit excessive.
3) There is absolutely NO mention of network programming. A chapter on network programming would be greatly appreciated instead of the excessive coverage of streams.
4)However there is excellent coverage and explanation of JDBC. Also threads are explained very well.
Overall the book is definitely worth a buy, especially for the beginner/intermediate programmer. Object-oriented concepts are very well-explained. Also it has much better coverage of Swing than books like Thinking in Java. It is definitely better than Just Java which I found to be too superficial and elementary.

Von THE DUDE - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I feel like i have been in a race for the last 9 months trying to learn Java, and go beyond and be productive. Some guy said he learned Java in 2 weeks, its not going to happen. Then again there are different levels of what people mean by, "know a language." I have so many java books in my room people who come by think java is some sort of porn. First off most the books out there take people from a C or Java haha, background and let them learn a few new sentax moves in java. Problem is they do not tell you the full story. You will be there reading over 20 pages of stuff in these other books and not have a clue what was just going on. You will have a fuzzy look on your face, with a side note in your mind going,,yeah ill come back to that. All these java books are the same, they give you the basics the first 3/4 and then the last 1/4 they tell you how to make a art program,,etc with basic class files etc. This book is complete, you will understand what is going on, its worth it being a bit longer. In fact the 1/2 this book is on basics and 1/2 is on the extra stuff. And remember the only way to really know "JAVA" is to program. Just don't read the 1000 pages, you will get no where, because you will forget it fast. From day one you should think of something app you would like to create, and your desire to learn what is going on will be much better. The only thing i question is Ivor Horton, the guy has to take drugs to write a 1000+ page book like this. There has to be a better way of making money.
