THROUGH GAMES
Learning Java Through Games teaches you how to use the different features
of the Java language as well as how to program. The book covers as much
material as possible from the latest Java standard while requiring no
previous programming experience.
Taking an application-motivated approach, the text presents an abundance
of games. You must read through the whole chapter to understand all the
features that are needed to implement the game. Most chapters start with
a description of a game and then introduce different Java constructs for
implementing the features of the game on need-to-use bases.
The rst part of the book covers basic programming techniques, such as
conditional statements, loops, methods, arrays, and classes. The second part
focuses on more advanced topics, including class inheritance, recursions,
sorting algorithms, GUI programming, exception handling, les, and applets.
This text explains not only how to write code that works but also how to
follow good software practices. All sample programs in the text strive to
achieve low cohesion and high coupling—the hallmarks of well-designed
code. Many programs are refactored multiple times to achieve code that is
easy to understand, reuse, and maintain.
