"Core Java Volume I: Fundamentals" will enable programmers to: Leverage existing programming knowledge to quickly master core Java syntax; Understand how encapsulation, classes, and inheritance work in Java; Master interfaces, inner classes, and lambda expressions for functional programming; Improve program robustness with exception handling and effective debugging; Write safer, more readable programs with generics and strong typing; Use pre-built collections to collect multiple objects for later retrieval; Master concurrent programming techniques from the ground up; Build modern cross-platform GUIs with standard Swing components; Deploy configurable applications and applets, and deliver them across the Internet; Simplify concurrency and enhance performance with new functional techniques.
Chapter 6 explores more advanced topics to show the different types of relationships that are possible between objects: inheritance, interfaces, packaging, and inner classes. This chapter provides a serious discussion of key concepts in object-oriented programming, with a combination of detailed explanations and concise examples that you will welcome.
In addition, the latest version provides support for language-specific features, such as inner classes and JavaBeans.
Superficially, Java has no functions; however, using interfaces and the inner classes that have fairly recently been added to the Java language it is fairly easy to mimic some of the features of functional programming.
Core Java 1.2 contains sections on introducing Java, the Java programming environment, fundamental programming structures in Java, objects and classes, inheritance, interfaces and inner classes, graphics programming, event handling, user interface components with swing, applets, exceptions and debugging, and streams and files.
