Functional and flexible, this guide takes an objects-first approach to Java programming and problem using games and puzzles. Updated to cover Java version 1.5 features, such as generic types, enumerated types, and the Scanner class. Offers independent introductions to both a command-line interface and a graphical user interface (GUI). Features coverage of Unified Modeling Language (UML), the industry-standard, object-oriented design tool. Illustrates key aspects of Java with a collection of game and puzzle examples.

.What is Java?
Java is a generalpurpose, concurrent, class-based, objectoriented language. “Green team” in 1991 “Oak” language Going public in May 1995.
Dialogues may be seen as comprising commonplace routines on the one hand and specialized, task-specific interactions on the other. Object-orientation is an established means of separating the generic from the specialized. The system under discussion combines this objectoriented approach with a self-organizing, mixed-initiative dialogue strategy, raising the possibility of dialogue systems that can be assembled from ready-made components and tailored, specialized components.
Microsoft Visual Basic developers have long clamored for complete objectoriented language support. Microsoft Visual Basic .NET supports all the features of an objectoriented language. In addition, the entire Microsoft .NET Framework, which includes the development support for Microsoft Windows applications, Web applications, Web services, graphics, and data access, is designed according to object-oriented principles.
Developers who have a firm grasp of object-oriented principles will be the strongest .NET
This book is directly aimed to eliminate exhausting amounts of frustration in getting to
know and working with software objects in the most effective ways. It is concise and
broad—and definitely not simplistic—specifically to strengthen each reader’s objectoriented
mentality and to mentally solidify individual pieces of information. This is
because conciseness is more compatible with memory, and broadness is more compatible
