From the Back Cover: @CATEGORY = Programming Languages: Java (CC19)@TITLE = The Object of Java: Introduction to Programming Using Software Engineering Principles@AUTHOR = David D. Riley.

The Object of Java fully embraces the object-oriented paradigm by taking an "objects-centric" approach to presenting problem solving and programming. This book focuses on the skills and discipline of software engineering that are needed for good programming. Since specifications are critical for conveying code behavior in the object-oriented model, discussions of method preconditions and postconditions, and class invariants are used consistently to document examples and to define example classes. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is used as the specification language.

The book also uses the notion of patterns to identify numerous expressions, instructions, algorithms and designs that serve to pattern program segments. Readers begin with four complete chapters focusing on objects, classes and methods. The presentation of primitive data occurs in Chapter 5, ensuring the necessary prior exposure to object declaration, object instantiation, assignment, method calling, parameter passage, class diagrams and object diagrams. In order to accommodate this placement of topics, control structures are covered later than in other books.

The book also emphasizes the importance of testing with special sections devoted to ensure that readers develop basic debugging skills, and knowledge of simple path testing and black-box testing. This book is designed for readers without prior programming experience, and is also appropriate for those with knowledge of other languages who are looking for a true object-oriented introduction to Java.@ISBN = 0-201-73734-5@MAINCAT = Programming Languages@SUBCAT = Java@DATALINE1 = 2002, 352 pages, 7 3/8 x 9 1/8@DATALINE2 = Paper, $51.00k

Mainframers Unite - It's Time To Take The Distributed World!, August 8, 2001
Reviewer: studmoose from Jersey City, NJ

Java and OOP is a concept and practice which not many mainframe programmers have had much exposure to. The languages which I have utilized were: Machine Language, Assembler, Basic, Cobol, Fortran and Pascal. This book made the task of orienting myself with Java very effortless. The book is designed for the college classroom audience and is structured in a way which immediately exposes the reader to the concepts of OOP and UML. It gradually builds on past lessons so each section reinforces and reviews the prior ones. Other books jump from one topic to another which forces the reader to constantly flip the pages back to review the past lessons. This is an exceptional book which is definitely worth reviewing. After passing through the sections, Java is not intimidating at all. After all, if a PC programmer can handle this language, how hard can it really be?
