The aim of this book is to demonstrate fundamental programming concepts. This comprehensive version of Java Actually builds a foundation for novice programmers to move on to the more specialised and advanced technologies that use Java. Coverage is organised as follows:

Control structures, strings and arrays and Object-based programming (objects with no inheritance) are covered in the first two Parts so that objects are introduced as soon as possible.This material should be taught in all courses and a shorter version of this book exists to cover just these basics. For those moving onto to an intermediary level, the last parts of the book describe OOP (object-oriented programming) concepts and explain how they are applied.
