Description

Java is a language many aspiring programmers are eager to learn because of its versatility, extensibility, and ever-increasing popularity among employers. "Java Programming for the Absolute Beginner" teaches beginners the fundamental programming concepts they need to grasp in order to learn any computer language. Although applets will be discussed, unlike most beginning-level Java books, this one will focus on creating stand-alone applications. Readers will be able to take the skills they learn in this book and apply them to their own real-world situations.
