The Java programming language is used as an example throughout the Concise Guide to Object-Oriented Programming (PDF), which provides a user-friendly introduction to the world of object-oriented programming (OO) as well as the world of computer coding. The most beneficial information for novice coders is highlighted throughout the course so that students can build and comprehend their abilities and knowledge in a way that is both applicable and useful to their work. The examples provided in the text show how knowledge of OO programming may be applied to the creation of programs and apps that have practical use in day-to-day life and have value in the actual world.
The following topics and features are included: a general introduction to programming and coding; a concise history of programming languages; and a concise introduction to programming in Java via BlueJ. explains objects and classes; emphasizes how OO design plays an important role in producing a beneficial solution to a problem; highlights the importance of the concept of class polymorphism; reviews numerous Java library objects and packages; introduces the concept of the Application Programming Interface (API); reviews numerous Java library objects and packages; introduces the concept of the Application Programming Interface (API); reviews numerous Java library objects and packages. investigates the appropriate actions to take when the program detects a problem; describing the mechanism for handling exceptions as well as the practical steps involved in defensive programming; examines the operation of collections and arrays, with a particular emphasis on fixed-length arrays; the HashMap; ArrayList and HashSet; outlines the principles of constructing a Graphical User Interface (GUI) utilizing Swing; and explains the idea of a design pattern; a summary of two apps in their entirety, beginning with the basic design and continuing through the implementation stage. presenting the material that is discussed in the remaining chapters of the book; providing the source code for all of the projects and examples that are discussed. This concise guide is ideal for the beginner who is approaching OO programming for the first time. It doesn't matter if the reader is a student of computer science who is enrolling in a one-semester course in this subject area, or if they are someone who is learning for the purpose of professional development or self-improvement. This book is perfect for all of these audiences. It is not necessary to have any prior understanding of OO, coding, software engineering, or mathematics in order to read the ebook.
