Continuing in the tradition of the popular second edition, Java Illuminated: An Active Learning Approach, Brief Third Edition, offers students a hands-on introduction to programming using the most current version of Java. This brief version is suitable for a one-term introductory course in Java programming and presents topics in a logical order while progressively and interactively moving through key topics. The "active learning approach" involves students in hands-on, real life programming activities and engaging examples, exercises, and projects. Object-Oriented programming concepts are developed progressively and reinforced through numerous Programming Activities, allowing students to fully understand and implement both basic and sophisticated techniques. In response to students' growing interest in animation and visualization, the authors include techniques for producing graphical output and animations beginning in Chapter 4 with applets and continuing throughout the text. Your students will find it exciting to delve into the world of programming with hands-on, real-world applications!
New to the Third Edition: -Includes NEW examples and projects throughout -Every new printed copy of the text includes a CD-ROM with the following: *programming activity framework code *full example code from each chapter *browser-based modules with visual step-by-step demonstrations of code execution *links to popular integrated development environments and the Java Standard Edition JDK (Please note, the eBook version does not include the CD) -Every new printed copy includes a FREE ACCESS CARD for TuringsCraft CodeLab (standalone access can be purchased at www.turingscraft.com). Customized to match the organization of this textbook, CodeLab provides over 300 short programming exercises! *Custom CodeLab: CodeLab is a web-based interactive programming exercise service that has been customized to accompany this text. It provides over 300 short exercises, each focused on a particular programming idea or language construct. The student types in code and the system immediately judges its correctness, offering hints when the submission is incorrect. *See CodeLab in action! A Jones & Bartlett Learning demonstration site is available online at jblearning.turingscraft.com.
