Java developers new to graphics and game programming, as well as game developers new to Java 3D, will find Killer Game Programming in Java invaluable. This new book is a practical introduction to the latest Java graphics and game programming technologies and techniques. It is the first book to thoroughly cover Java's 3D capabilities for all types of graphics and game development projects.
The Microsoft .NET Framework introduces many new concepts, technologies, and terms. My goal in
this chapter is to give you an overview of how the .NET Framework is architected, introduce you to
some of the new technologies the framework includes, and define many of the terms you’ll be
seeing when you start using it. I’ll also take you through the process of building your source code
into an application or a set of redistributable components (types) and then explain how these
What is ASP?
– Server-side scripting technology
– Files containing HTML and scripting code
– Access via HTTP requests
– Scripting code is interpreted on server side
• What can I do with ASP?
– Easily and quickly create simple Web applications
– Generate dynamic Web content
– Client-side scripting for validation
– Access COM components to extend functionality
The purpose of this book is to provide experienced software developers with the means to quickly
become productive in Microsoft's Visual Basic .NET development environment. The only
assumption I make about you as a programmer is that you're comfortable with the concepts and
processes of software development. This book will not teach you how to program. However, if
you're currently a working Visual Basic, C++, or Java developer, this book will help you transfer
your existing skills to this new environment....
In early 2001 I began using Microsoft’s .NET Framework for a project I was working
on with a small startup company. Unfortunately, the winds changed and I found
myself with more free time than I would normally hope for. So when Manning Publications
asked me if I would contribute to a book on programming with the .NET
Framework, I welcomed the idea.
As events unfolded, I found myself with some fairly strong opinions about how
such a book should be organized, and offered up a proposal to write a solo book on
programming Windows Forms applications.
This book is addressed to business management and project managers as well as
researchers who are evaluating the use of radio frequency identiﬁcation (RFID)
for tracking uniquely identiﬁed objects. In an effort to make RFID project
management less of an art form and more of a science RFID Technology and
Applications brings together pioneering RFID academic research principals to
analyze engineering issues that have hampered the deployment of RFID and to
share ‘‘best practices’’ learnings from their work.
Java 3D is a client−side Java application programming interface (API) developed at Sun Microsystems for rendering interactive 3D graphics using Java. Using Java 3D you will be able to develop richly interactive 3D applications, ranging from immersive games to scientific visualization applications.

Java(TM) Network Programming and Distributed Computing is an accessible
introduction to the changing face of networking theory, Java(TM) technology, and the
fundamental elements of the Java networking API. With the explosive growth of the
Internet, Web applications, and Web services, the majority of today's programs and
applications require some form of networking. Because it was created with extensive
networking features, the Java programming language is uniquely suited for network
programming and distributed computing....
This is a great time to be a Flash game developer. Right now, there is no better development
tool for small and medium-size games.
Flash CS3 Professional (a.k.a. Flash 9) is fast, powerful, and easy to develop with. The
key to this is ActionScript 3.0, the great new programming language inside this latest
version of Flash.
ActionScript 1.0 and 2.0 were often frustrating for game developers. They weren’t fast
enough to get key tasks done, and odd bugs and unexpected behavior often slowed
ActionScript 3.0 is a very different animal.
This documentation contains, It is an application development language containing procedural statements and commands along with SQL commands,
It bridges the gap between database technology and procedural programming languages, Uses procedural techniques of control, looping and branching,
Supports SQL i.e. cursor operations, exceptions, functions and transactional commands ,Variables and constants, robust error handling and functions
Every 10 years or so a new approach to programming hits like a tsunami. In the early 1980s, the new technologies were Unix, which could be run on a desktop, and a powerful new language called C, developed by AT&T. The early 90's brought Windows and C++. Each of these developments represented a sea change in the way you approached programming. .NET and C# are the next wave, and this book is intended to help you ride it.
The web application landscape is vast and varied. Microsoft’s ASP.NET Framework—
built on top of the mature and robust .NET Framework—is one of the most trusted
platforms in the industry. ASP.NET MVC is Microsoft’s latest addition to the world of
ASP.NET providing web developers with an alternative development approach that
helps you build web applications with ease.
The main goal of this book is simple: to help you to build a complete understanding
of the ASP.NET MVC 4 Framework from the ground up. However, it doesn’t stop there
—the book combines fundamental ASP.
Ten years ago, when I used FrontPage for the first time, I was amazed at how far ahead of its time the
program was. The ability to work with tables, visual formatting, styles, and pinpoint accurate designs
truly amazed me. I was a skeptic when it came to visual editors, and preferred Notepad whenever
possible. FrontPage changed that in me, and made me look at Web development in a whole new light.
Still, many considered FrontPage a simple visual editor that accomplishes little but aid in the development
of static Web pages.
There are a lot of books about designing and buildingWeb pages, so thank you for picking up this one.
Why do I think it is different?Well, theWeb has been around for quite a few years now, and during its life
several technologies have been introduced to help you create Web pages, some of which have lasted,
others of which have disappeared. Indeed, even enduring technologies such as HTML have had features
added and removed over the years.
The OpenGL graphics system is a software interface to graphics hardware. (The GL stands for Graphics Library.) It allows you to create interactive programs that produce color images of moving three−dimensional objects. With OpenGL, you can control computer−graphics technology to produce realistic pictures or ones that depart from reality in imaginative ways. This guide explains how to program with the OpenGL graphics system to deliver the visual effect you want.
In a Microsoft Windows environment, you begin installation by double−clicking on the setup.exe file to run
the installation program. If you are working in a non−Windows environment, please visit the RevealNet
PL/SQL Pipeline Archives (http://www.revealnet.com/plsql−pipeline) to obtain a compressed file containing
the utilities on this disk.
The installation script will lead you through the necessary steps. The first screen you will see is the install
screen shown in Figure A.1.
