Description

BlueJ is a Java development environment that runs on top of the Sun .

BlueJ is a Java development environment that runs on top of the Sun Microsystems Java Development Kit making use of the standard compiler and virtual machine. It allows readers to create objects of any class and interact with their methods. This truly "objects first" approach within the customized BlueJ environment will revolutionize the way programming is learned. The book includes a copy of BlueJ. Takes a project driven approach to problem solving-the book is structured along the lines of fundamental development tasks-providing readers with clear coverage of the principles of object-oriented programming.

David J. Barnes & Michael Kölling. This book is an introduction to object-oriented programming for beginners. The main focus of the book is general object-oriented and programming concepts from a software engineering perspective. It may takes up to 1-5 minutes before you received it.

Objects First with Java book. These are complicated concepts so the book uses the development environment BlueJ to help the student's understanding. The book has a very clear identity. BlueJ has a strong emphasis on visualization and interaction techniques, and allows the students to manipulate objects and call methods as a The book has a very clear identity. It takes a truly objects first approach to teaching problem solving using Java.

For introductory courses in Java/Introduction to Programming and Object-Oriented Programming. Its close integration with the BlueJ development environment allows this book to focus on key aspects of object-oriented software development from day one. BlueJ's clear visualization of classes and objects means that students can immediately appreciate the differences between them, and gain a much better understanding of the nature of an object than they would from simply reading source code.

It uses BlueJ to get students started on object-oriented programming from day one - unlike most texts, which delay coverage - so that students don't have to switch thought processes midstream. Barnes and Kolling strategically do not cover traditional topics like control structures, preserving their goal of teaching object-oriented principles. The authors incorporate a "spiral approach" throughout the text.

TOPICAL OUTLINE OF COURSE Readings are from Barnes/Kolling and are indicated in parentheses.

Topics include data, control, problem decomposition, abstractions, arrays and an introduction to the analysis of algorithms. COURSE OBJECTIVES This course will serve as an introduction to computer science: problem solving, algorithms and programming. TOPICAL OUTLINE OF COURSE Readings are from Barnes/Kolling and are indicated in parentheses.

The book has clear and precisely targeted chapters that run you through object orientated programming with BlueJ. You will have a small conversation to say Eclipse or Netbeans, however, this book really made me appreciate the power of BlueJ. It readable, it's in a compact form that packs so much in a smallish form factor, easy to travel with. Barnes & Kollig make a good addition to any student's collection.

A gradual introduction to programming in the "objects first" tradition. The BlueJ IDE is a remarkable piece of work in its own right, and this text makes full use of all its features. Even better, you can continue using BlueJ long after you've finished the book ... it's not just a throwaway piece of pedagogy, but a valuable TDD tool for life.

The authors cover a wide spectrum of programming approaches, always guiding the student gently toward the goal.

It moves a bit slowly for my taste, but students these days aren't comfortable with hard work so it's probably a better fit.

The very first programming book I read when I started trying to learn for real. Love the IDE it works with (written for middle-schoolers), love the textbook (written by authors who decided middle-schoolers needed their own IDE). It, and the visual IDE it works with, did a great job helping me learn to think object-orientedly before I ever wrote a "Hello World." There's so much visual feedback that helps you see initialization & garbage collection, state scope, etc. And the book follows a great program!

We didn't follow it in my 1st class (it was a suggested extra), but I was so glad I got a few chapters in before we started on our more procedurally-oriented Java book. I was way ahead of my classmates when we started covering static vs. object code.

All too rare is a book such as this. There are the Tate books (e.g., Bitter Java,Beyond Java), which claim the Oracle/Sun's sky is falling (not that Tate is wrong about Ruby being a great language that points to a better future, but Java isn't as worthless/sour-grapes-ish as his books can suggest). And there are the ordinary either gimmicky or technocratic textbooks that somehow always unnecessarily obfuscate the relationships between Object-Orientated Programming principles and syntax (e.g., Java in 60 Minutes A Day,Java How to Program (early objects) (9th Edition) (Deitel)). But this one is in its own league because of its balanced and graduated presentation of OOP principles and Java syntax, making it one of the easiest books from which to learn not only Java syntax but also how such syntax is governed by specific OOP principles.

For example, in Chapter 7 the OOP principles of cohesion and coupling are illustrated using a sample program, which in this case is a Zork-like game. So these otherwise abstract concepts have been tied into the design of a set of meaningful classes/objects/Java syntax that are relatively easy to grasp because they have somehow been made almost tangible.

These comments would not be complete without mentioning BlueJ, which is what draws most people to this book to begin with. BlueJ is a relatively simple IDE (compared to Netbeans, for instance) that extends the JAVA CLI (command-line interface) to make it feel more like modern LABVIEW or MATLAB's SIMULINK by letting one program Java through interaction with a UML(Unified Modelling Language)-type Class diagram. To some extent BlueJ makes interacting with Java more dynamic (more like the feel of Python and Ruby). For learning purposes it's fantastic (literally cuts learning time by a factor approaching 10), for professional purposes one can only hope that Oracle/Sun will give Java a BlueJ makeover.

Had to get this book for programming course and is an extremely easy read. The only down side I had was I bought this used acceptable and it had lots of used stickers on the back and side of book. But besides that this book was a great read with examples and definitions very helpful in my course.

Not all intro Java books are created equal, and this one is definitely worth the price.

I've had formal education in 3 programming languages, and this book is by far the best one I've ever read. It's because the chapters walk you through the design, implementation, and refactoring of actual Java projects. Vocabulary and concepts are taught in the process, so you find yourself absorbing the facts by necessity.

The book comes with an application called BlueJ, which models Java classes and object relationships. You can check your work against code samples on the CD as you complete the milestones of each project.

If you learn by doing, and you need to learn Java and OO, this book is for you.

Great price for the book

Really helpful. Great way to learn Java.

It's clear that the teachers know how to get the material across to students.
Very easy to follow and makes concepts easy to understand, but rather boring and drab at times. I had to get it for my Java class.
