  • ALL PROGRAMS AND VISUALS REFLECT WINDOWS 10. This edition's programs, as well as all screen images, incorporate Windows 10 to prepare your students to work most effectively in this new environment.
  • NEW COVERAGE OF JAVAFX PREPARES STUDENTS TO CREATE AND DEPLOY MORE SOPHISTICATED APPLICATIONS. A new chapter (Ch. 15) addresses JavaFX in detail to prepare your students to work with this platform for creating and developing desktop and internet applications.
  • FULL-COLOR PRESENTATION CLEARLY ILLUSTRATES PRINCIPLES. This edition now uses full color to retain readers' attention as well as clarify and illustrate important principles and key skills.
  • ALL PROGRAMS INCORPORATE THE LATEST VERSION OF JAVA™. Programs throughout this edition have been tested using Java 9 to prepare your students to master the latest version of the world's most popular development platform.
  • CLEAR LEARNING OBJECTIVES DIRECT ATTENTION TO VITAL POINTS OF LEARNING. Each chapter begins with a list of well-defined objectives, enabling you and your students to efficiently review the topics presented in the chapter at a glance.
  • REVIEW QUESTIONS, PROGRAMMING EXERCISES, GAME ZONE, DEBUGGING EXERCISES, and CASE PROBLEMS KEEP READERS INVOLVED IN LEARNING. The author provides a wide variety of programming experiences designed to both engage and challenge readers at the end of each chapter.
  • INFORMATIVE FIGURES IN EACH CHAPTER CLARIFY AND ILLUSTRATE IMPORTANT CONCEPTS. Code figures, frequently 25 lines or less, illustrate one concept at a time. All Java keywords appear in color to differentiate them from program-created identifiers. Callouts identify and highlight important code statements, while abundant screen captures show exactly how program output appears.
  • KEY TERMS LIST OFFERS AN AT-A-GLANCE REFERENCE TOOL FOR LEARNERS. Each chapter includes a list of key terms introduced in the chapter. Full definitions for the terms are provided in this edition's glossary.
  • "TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE" QUIZZES KEEP REVIEW ENGAGING AND INTERACTIVE. These intriguing short quizzes appear after each section and contain two true statements and one false statement about the preceding section of text. These true-false mini-quizzes provide students with immediate feedback as they read, without "giving away" answers to end-of-chapter multiple-choice and programming problem questions. This allows you to use the end-of-chapter exercises as assignments or test questions, if desired.
  • FULL PROGRAM FILES ENABLE CONVENIENT CLASS PRESENTATIONS AND ALLOW READERS TO EXPERIMENT WITH THE LANGUAGE. Every complete program shown in this edition is included in an easily accessed digital file. Students can run and modify these programs to experiment with the programming language. The full programs also allow you to execute programs in class without extensive typing or testing of classroom program examples.
