Book Description: Java Methods introduces the concepts, case studies, and examples relevant to object-oriented programming of applets and applications with graphical user interfaces in Java. The Java 2 platform with swing is used in all examples. This book has been used for introductory coputer programming courses and has helped many readers learn Java and OOP concepts on their own.

Reviewer: Joseph A. Tosh from Atlantic City, NJ, United States
Wow! What a great book for learning Java! Whether you are a beginner to computer programming, or migrating from another language, this book has so much for everybody. Every chapter ends with a summary and a variety of exercises to test yourself (or your students) on the topics presented. In addition, most chapters have at least one Lab and/or Case Study to extend your understanding and your programming skills. The book however is just the beginning. There are numerous Internet references for support, edification and enrichment as well as a terrific companion web site devoted to enhancing the book. The web site contains sample programs from the book, "student" activities, "teacher" solutions, information on Java compilers and IDE's, appendices, I/O classes, etc. As a high school APCS teacher I believe that this book will be an excellent choice for any high school level programming course. The Litvins gently take the new programmer by the hand and first walk them through samples of code just glancing at the details and eventually exposing the full breadth and power of Java.
