Java is a programming language designed for use on networks, in particular the Internet, and can also be used to write full-scale applications. It is based upon C++ and is very similar in its style and structure. Java Made Simple 2nd edition concentrates on getting the reader started and assumes no prior programming knowledge. Once the essentials have been mastered, it provides the confidence to go deeper into the language and broaden and develop invaluable programming skills.

About Author

Mac's first steps into computing came 19 years ago when he taught himself Basic on a ZX81. He started his first book shortly afterwards, when he realised that (a) programming was fun, and (b) no-one was writing simple books on it. Since then he has programmed in, taught and/or written about 9 varieties of Basic, 3 Pascals, 2 Cs, Assembler, Cobol and Java, 5 spreadsheets, 3 databases, 4 word-processors, and 6 operating systems. He is looking forward to the time when developers stop producing new software and books don't go out of date in a couple of years. Mac can usually be found either in the kitchen or running a taxi service for his family. He lives in Southampton with 4 children, 2 cats and 40 fishes.
