"You're a junior developer with a couple of years of Java under your belt and you've hit the Java wall of mystery. The knowledge blocker where complex concepts like concurrency and network programming or generics and collections leave you baffled and unable to proceed. In this video, Java wizard Ken Kousen de-mystifies all to transport you to a smarter place. A place where your newfound Java skills work magic into the day-to-day practices of database programming, network programming and back-end web development. Spells uncovered include: generic programming, concurrency, interfaces, inheritance, objects, the new I/O packages, working with relational databases, networking, testing, inner classes, and the new features of Java 8. Put on your cape and zoom."--Resource description page.
"Learn everything you need to know to get the most of the Java Collections Framework. Simon Roberts, best-selling Java author and trainer, will detail the nuances of working with collections, so you can better understand the concepts and see firsthand how to use this powerful API. This course is an essential guide to learning how the collections API--which is rich with functionality--can help with regular programing projects. In addition to learning about interfaces, classes, and methods, you will explore design questions, why the API is the way it is, and how you can use it for best effect. You will also learn how to break up complex coding problems and how to more efficiently maintain code. You will actually explore design patterns and principles used in the collections API that are applicable to many areas of programing. This course takes a different approach from most Java courses, using a story-like approach to teach concepts. Topics start by looking at a problem, considering how it might be solved, and steadily working to more advanced solutions, while building understanding of the concepts, libraries, and syntax being used. You will develop a thorough understanding of each chunk of knowledge, so you are ready to use that understanding in your daily coding.You will start by taking a look at generalization in collections and explore key collection API interfaces. You will then find out why there's a need for generics, see general tools you can use, and take a look at some use cases. After that you will dive in, exploring investigating lists, array-based implementations of a list, linked implementation, and more. The next step is then understanding iterating collections, equality, orders, hash codes, and hashed storage before jumping into sets, trees, improving designs, maps, implementing the iterator pattern, the new functional methods added with Java 8, and more interfaces. You will then take a look at list implementations and utilities for collections. The course will wrap things up with a section on creating and combining comparators, which includes more functional additions to the APIs."--Resource description page.

Android development is hot, and many programmers are interested in joining the fun. However, because this technology is based on Java, you should first obtain a solid grasp of the Java language and its foundational APIs to improve your chances of succeeding as an Android app developer. After all, you will be busy learning the architecture of an Android app, the various Android-specific APIs, and Android-specific tools. If you do not already know Java fundamentals, you will probably end up with a massive headache from also having to quickly cram those fundamentals into your knowledge base. Learn Java for Android Development teaches programmers of any skill level the essential Java language and foundational Java API skills that must be learned to improve the programmer’s chances of succeeding as an Android app developer. Each of the book’s 10 chapters provides an exercise section that gives you the opportunity to reinforce your understanding of the chapter’s material. Answers to the book’s more than 300 exercises are provided in an appendix. Additionally, author Jeff Friesen has created six bonus chapters that you can download from his personal site, located at http://tutortutor.ca/cgi-bin/makepage.cgi?/books/ljfad. Once you complete this book, you will be ready to dive into Android, and you can start that journey by obtaining a copy of Beginning Android 2.
Version 5.0 of the Java 2 Standard Edition SDK is the most important upgrade since Java first appeared a decade ago. With Java 5.0, you'll not only find substantial changes in the platform, but to the language itself-something that developers of Java took five years to complete. The main goal of Java 5.0 is to make it easier for you to develop safe, powerful code, but none of these improvements makes Java any easier to learn, even if you've programmed with Java for years. And that means our bestselling hands-on tutorial takes on even greater significance. Learning Java is the most widely sought introduction to the programming language that's changed the way we think about computing. Our updated third edition takes an objective, no-nonsense approach to the new features in Java 5.0, some of which are drastically different from the way things were done in any previous versions. The most essential change is the addition of "generics", a feature that allows developers to write, test, and deploy code once, and then reuse the code again and again for different data types. The beauty of generics is that more problems will be caught during development, and Learning Java will show you exactly how it's done. Java 5.0 also adds more than 1,000 new classes to the Java library. That means 1,000 new things you can do without having to program it in yourself. That's a huge change. With our book's practical examples, you'll come up to speed quickly on this and other new features such as loops and threads. The new edition also includes an introduction to Eclipse, the open source IDE that is growing in popularity. Learning Java, 3rd Edition addresses all of the important uses of Java, such as web applications, servlets, and XML that are increasingly driving enterprise applications.
If you’re new to Java—or new to programming—this best-selling book will guide you through the language features and APIs of Java 11.

You’ll learn powerful new ways to manage resources and exceptions in your applications—along with core language features included in recent Java versions. Develop with Java, using the compiler, interpreter, and other tools Explore Java’s built-in thread facilities and concurrency package Learn text processing and the powerful regular expressions API Write advanced networked or web-based applications and services

Object-Oriented Programming and Java presents two important topics in contemporary software development: object-oriented programming and Java. This book takes a different teaching approach from most available literature, it begins with the description of real-world object interaction scenarios and explains how they can be translated, represented and executed using object-oriented programming paradigm. Principally, Java is an object-oriented programming language. By establishing a solid foundation in the understanding of object-oriented programming concepts and their applications, the book provides readers with the pre-requisites for writing proper object-oriented programs using Java. Object-Oriented Programming and Java covers the latest in Java technologies and is suitable for undergraduate or postgraduate courses on object-oriented technology, particularly those using Java as a programming language for creating object-oriented programs. The book will also give individual professional developers a head-start in learning the language.

The Collections Framework is supplied with all versions of the Java 2 platform and provides programmers with incredibly efficient ways to manipulate data. However, given the large number of methods and classes in this library, using them correctly is hardly a cakewalk. Well-known columnist and bestselling author John Zukowski gives the Java professional exactly what he or she needs to know about this vital library in order to maximize productivity. This practical book contains comprehensive coverage of the important Collections Framework from the working programmer's point of view, while staying away from academic abstractions. Java Collections leads you through the standard Java support for maintaining abstract groups of data, from the historical collection classes available since the inception of Java time, through the Collections Framework introduced with the Java 2 platform, and on to third-party alternative libraries for times when the standard support isn't enough. If you're working with data in Java programs, you need to understand the Collections Framework. Let Zukowski's Java Collections be your guide!
