Thinking in Java, Third Edition is the much-anticipated revision of Bruce Eckel's best-selling introduction to Java. In Thinking in Java, 3/e, Bruce Eckel provides complete integration of JDK 1.4 technologies to his award winning 'Thinking in' presentation. Eckel introduces all the basics of objects as Java uses them, then walks carefully through the fundamental concepts underlying all Java programming -- including program flow, initialization and cleanup, implementation hiding, reusing classes, and polymorphism. Using extensive, to-the-point examples, he introduces exception handling, Java l/O, run-time type identification, and passing and returning objects. New chapters cover critical areas including JSPs and Servlets, EJBs, XML, Web Services as well as Network Programming, Database Access, JDBC and JDO. Eckel also provides an overview of the Key Technology of the Java2 Enterprise Edition platform (J2EE).
