The professional programmer’s Deitel® guide to Java development and the powerful Java platform

Written for programmers with a background in high-level language programming, this book applies the Deitel signature live-code approach to teaching programming and explores the Java language and Java APIs in depth. The book presents concepts in the context of fully tested programs, complete with syntax shading, code highlighting, line-by-line code walkthroughs and program outputs. The book features 200+ complete Java programs with 18,000+ lines of proven Java code, and hundreds of tips that will help you build robust applications.
