ISBN10: 0130335207

Summary: For undergraduate courses in C++--Programming for Engineers, Java--Programming Language, and Structured Programming Techniques.

From the very beginning, this concise introduction to Java develops and executes practical examples useful for solving problems in an engineering environment. Focused on the proper way to write reliable Java programs, it outlines excellent software development practices; uses a top-down design technique to break the program up int moreo logical portions; and demonstrates object re-usability by building later examples on the classes and methods created in earlier examples. The text makes learning an interactive experience by providing all sources for all examples through a Website.
The book also includes a number of supporting classes to make it easier for engineers to format numbers in Java, to display data in linear or logarithmic plots, to work with complex numbers, to manipulate arrays, and to perform such common engineering calculations as FFTs, convolutions, correlations, etc.

Features :

  • NEW - Improved format--Breaks down material into more digestible pieces of information.
  • Makes challenging content more accessible to students.
  • NEW - Features Java using only the standard classes found in Java SDK 1.4--With the sole exception of a single plotting class that is used in certain exercises.
  • NEW - Early introduction to simple GUI inputs and output using the JObjectPane.
  • NEW - Added coverage of Serializable objects, JAR files, and interprocess communications.
  • Provides students with more a more comprehensive treatment of the subject.
  • NEW - Expanded and revised chapter-end problems--Contain a strong engineering/scientific emphasis.
  • Gives students ample opportunity to apply learned concepts, keeps them interested in the material, and contributes to their interactive learning experience.
  • Top-down design methodology.
  • Emphasizes the importance of learning good programming techniques.
  • Emphasis on problem solving.
  • Supplies students with the practical information useful for solving problems in an engineering environment.
  • "Good Programming Practice" and "Programming Pitfalls" boxes.
  • Highlights the "do's" and "don'ts" of good Java programming.
  • Supporting classes--Packages accompany book.
  • Allows students to perform practical functions such as linear or logarithmic plots, solving simultaneous equations, formatting numbers, reading and writing files, and working with complex numbers.
  • A minimal Java API emphasis.
  • Teaches only an essential subset of the Java API, and concentrates the rest of the time on problem solving, algorithms, and examples.
  • Portable Java packages of class libraries--Designed to perform many of the functions required to write working Java programs.
  • Emphasizes the re-usable nature of Java objects, and explains how to create and use packages.
  • Supplemental material--Available in hard copy and on-line sources. less
