Murach’s Java Programming, 4th Edition
That’s what one developer wrote us about an earlier edition of our core Java book. Now, you can expect that same practical, time-saving approach in the current edition that covers the latest release of Java Standard Edition, Java SE 7 (or JDK 1.7).
And to make training even easier for you, this book now shows you how to develop Java programs using NetBeans, a popular, professional IDE that will boost your productivity at every step.
The big news in this edition is that it now teaches Java programming using the NetBeans IDE. Today, no professional programmer should miss out on the time-saving features of an IDE, and NetBeans is a popular choice that’s free, easy-to-use, and powerful. And because NetBeans works on the Windows, Mac, and Unix/Linux operating systems, this book is less Windows-centric than previous editions have been.
In terms of the Java language itself, there aren’t a lot of significant changes in Java SE 7. One that’s generating a lot of interest is the try-with-resources statement that’s covered in chapter 14 on handling exceptions. In addition, there are new chapters on debugging and deployment, and the GUI section now features the use of the NetBeans Swing GUI Builder. Download eBook Free »
