Java Foundations: Introduction to Program Design and Data Structures
Lewis, John, DePasquale, Peter, Chase, Joe
For courses in Java Programming. A comprehensive, cohesive, and seamless exploration of Java programming Java Foundations is a comprehensive textbook for introductory programming sequences. The versatile layout supports a two-or three-semester sequence and introduces students to the world of programming-from basic programming concepts to the design and implementation of complex data structures. Inspired by the success of their industry-leading text, Java Software Solutions, authors Lewis, DePasquale, and Chase build a solid framework for lasting comprehension. The 5th Edition is updated to keep the content fully up-to-speed while incorporating changes from user feedback. The biggest change in this edition is the overhaul of the graphical content to fully embrace the JavaFX platform, which has replaced Swing as the supported technology for graphics and Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) in Java. The switch over to the new approach simplifies GUI development and provides better opportunities to discuss object-oriented programming.
