  • Nanoreview: four things to remember about constructors
  • Wait a minute... we never DID talk about super-classes and inheritance and how that all fits in with constructors
  • The role of superclass constructors in an object’s life
  • Making a Hippo means making the Animal and Object parts too...
  • How do you invoke a superclass constructor?
  • Can the child exist before the parents?
  • Superclass constructors with arguments
  • Invoking one overloaded constructor from another

Chapter 10 Numbers and Statics: Numbers Matter

  • MATH methods: as close as you’ll ever get to a global method
  • The difference between regular (non-static) and static methods
  • What it means to have a class with static methods
  • Static methods can’t use non-static (instance) variables!
  • Static methods can’t use non-static methods, either!

  • Autoboxing works almost everywhere
  • But wait! There’s more! Wrappers have static utility methods too!
  • And now in reverse... turning a primitive number into a String
  • Number formatting
  • Formatting deconstructed...
  • The percent (%) says, “insert argument here” (and format it using these instructions)
  • The format String uses its own little language syntax

  • So much for numbers, what about dates?
  • Working with Dates
  • Moving backward and forward in time
  • Getting an object that extends Calendar
  • Working with Calendar objects
  • Highlights of the Calendar API
  • Even more Statics!... static imports

Chapter 11 Exception Handling: Risky Behavior

  • Let’s make a Music Machine
  • We’ll start with the basics
  • First we need a Sequencer
  • The compiler needs to know that YOU know you’re calling a risky method
  • An exception is an object... of type Exception
  • If it’s your code that catches the exception, then whose code throws it?
  • Flow control in try/catch blocks
  • Finally: for the things you want to do no matter what
  • Did we mention that a method can throw more than one exception?
  • Exceptions are polymorphic
  • Multiple catch blocks must be ordered from smallest to biggest
  • You can’t put bigger baskets above smaller baskets
  • When you don’t want to handle an exception...
  • Ducking (by declaring) only delays the inevitable
  • Getting back to our music code...
  • Making actual sound
  • Your very first sound player app
  • Making a Midi Event (song data)
  • MIDI message: the heart of a Midi Event
  • Change a message

  • Getting a user event
  • Listeners, Sources, and Events
  • Getting back to graphics...
  • Make your own drawing widget
  • Fun things to do in paint Component
  • Behind every good Graphics reference is a Graphics2D object
  • Because life’s too short to paint the circle a solid color when there’s a gradient blend waiting for you
  • We can get an event. We can paint graphics. But can we paint graphics when we get an event?
  • GUI layouts: putting more than one widget on a frame
  • Let’s try it with TWO buttons
  • So now we need FOUR widgets
  • And we need to get TWO events
  • Inner class to the rescue!
  • An inner class instance must be tied to an outer class instance There’s an exception to this, for a very special case—an inner class defined within a static method. But we’re not going there, and you might go your entire Java life without ever encountering one of these.
  • How to make an instance of an inner class
  • Using an inner class for animation
  • Listening for a non-GUI event
  • An easier way to make messages / events

  • Making the Beat Box

Chapter 14 Serialization and File I/O: Saving Objects

  • Capture the Beat
  • Saving State
  • Writing a serialized object to a file
  • Data moves in streams from one place to another
  • What really happens to an object when it’s serialized?
  • But what exactly IS an object’s state? What needs to be saved?
  • If you want your class to be serializable, implement Serializable

  • To write data to a Socket, use a Print Writer
  • The Daily Advice Client
  • Daily Advice Client code
  • Writing a simple server
  • Daily Advice Server code
  • Writing a Chat Client
  • Java has multiple threads but only one Thread class

  • The deadly side of synchronization
  • New and improved Simple Chat Client
  • The really really simple Chat Server

Chapter 16 Collections and Generics: Data structures

  • Tracking song popularity on your jukebox
  • Here’s what you have so far, without the sort:
  • But the Array List class does NOT have a sort method!
  • Array List is not the only collection
  • You could use a Tree Set... Or you could use the Collections.sort method
  • Adding Collections.sort to the Jukebox code
  • But now you need Song objects, not just simple Strings
  • Changing the Jukebox code to use Songs instead of Strings
  • It won’t compile!
  • Generics means more type-safety
  • Learning generics
  • Using generic CLASSES
  • Using type parameters with Array List
  • Using generic METHODS
  • Here’s where it gets weird...
  • Revisiting the sort method
  • In generics, “extends” means “extends or implements”
  • Finally we know what’s wrong...
  • The new, improved, comparable Song class
  • We can sort the list, but...
  • Using a custom Comparator
  • Updating the Jukebox to use a Comparator
  • Uh-oh. The sorting all works, but now we have duplicates...
  • We need a Set instead of a List
  • The Collection API (part of it)
  • Using a Hash Set instead of Array List
  • What makes two objects equal?
  • How a Hash Set checks for duplicates: hash Code and equals
  • The Song class with overridden hash Code and equals
  • And if we want the set to stay sorted, we’ve got Tree Set
  • What you MUST know about Tree Set...
  • Tree Set elements MUST be comparable
  • We’ve seen Lists and Sets, now we’ll use a Map
  • Finally, back to generics
  • Using polymorphic arguments and generics
  • But will it work with Array List (Dog) ?
  • What could happen if it were allowed...
  • Wildcards to the rescue
  • Alternate syntax for doing the same thing

Chapter 17 Package, Jars and Deployment: Release Your Code

  • Separate source code and class files
  • Put your Java in a JAR
  • Running (executing) the JAR
  • Put your classes in packages!
  • Preventing package name conflicts
  • Compiling and running with packages
  • The -d flag is even cooler than we said
  • Making an executable JAR with packages
  • So where did the manifest file go?
  • Java Web Start
  • The .jnlp file

Chapter 18 Remote Deployment with RMI: Distributed Computing

  • Method calls are always between two objects on the same heap
  • What if you want to invoke a method on an object running on another machine?
  • Object A, running on Little, wants to call a method on Object B, running on Big
  • But you can’t do that
  • The role of the ‘helpers’
  • Java RMI gives you the client and service helper objects!
  • How does the client get the stub object?
  • How does the client get the stub class?
  • Be sure each machine has the class files it needs
  • Yeah, but who really uses RMI?

Best book for Java Greenhorns.

I am final year student of B.Tech CSE. I have programming experience in C# .Net 3.5 , C and C . Further, I kind of had feeling that I should resign from .Net and choose Java. So, after a lot R&D on Google and some other tech forums I chose Head First Java. And all I can say now is that it's simply awesome for newbies in Java. One can never find it boring. Once u have came past 1st chapter it will generate curiosity and u will keep moving on. I finished this book in mere 15-20 days and now I feel like I am much better in Java than in .Net, which I learnt after paying Rs 9000 to topmost mentor

From a Procedural Programmer to Object Oriented Guy!

In my last career job that I left about 20 years ago we were programming in DOS world using C & Assembly. Since then I spent years teaching computers to children of all ages. I had a longstanding desire to be able to bring myself up to speed in today's PC environments. My 1st book in Python was too overwhelming. I read the reviews here and thought to try this book. I can tell you that it has made OOPS funda a lot more clear for me. Went through about 150 pages of it like I was reading a novel. Follow the authors' advice about doing exercises, and you WILL learn Java concepts very well. The pic

good book...bad quality

I order this book because when I took it for first time from a friend, I just wasn't able keep it away and I definitely wanted to keep a copy of this in my collection. The book is a MUST for first time JAVA divers. But the quality of the book is bad. Seriously you can actually see the next page from the current page. The paper used to print is so thin, that I cannot even highlight with a smooth pencil, without tearing the paper. I wonder if Flipkart is listening.

Java made in to a-walk-in-a-park for beginners

I'm a amateur programmer. I had little programming knowledge in C. I've never passed across chapter 3 in any book. But this one is different. Without even realizing I've learned a lot within two weeks of starting to studying this.

Initially I thought of learning the basics of some robust programming language. From my research over internet I zeroed in on Java. Then I researched further on learning Java. All the suggestions I got is to start with 'Head First Java' and then 'Head First Design Patterns'. People over the internet were true. This is a great book to kick start your programming jou

wonderful book

I am a five years experience in software programming and working in java right from the beginning. I have worked in different fields of java, j2EE and web technologies and whenever I need to brush up my basic I fell on that book. I also fiddle with this book while relaxing and gained some knowledge which I previously missed. Before reading this book, I never relaised that learning can be so effortless, its just uncorking a bottle of champange, everything comes out effortlessly...u just need some curiosity and interest in java befor u buy this book

Want to answer every question in class and make heads turn? THEN READ THIS BOOK!

This is an extremely good book for anybody who wants to begin their learning on Java.
Pros:
1. Fluid style
2. Clever illustrations
3. Interesting problems
4. Unconventional coding (no programming involving printing the sum of two numbers)
5. You'd probably learn something out of this and still be called cool.

Cons:
Since it is a beginner's book, there are some limitations regarding the amount of learning you would like to have. There is only one con: Less detailed chapters on Autoboxing, Swing, Collections and Generics.

INTERACTIVE AND ENGAGING

First of all FK Delivery ,
I used to be fan of FK for its delivery but this time they took six days,
it seems they are more on promoting IN-A-DAY service .so that 3 stars.
About the book ,
i would have given it a 4 stars for its interactive and engaging style of presentation.
if you are impressed with many 5 stars from other users bear in mind you are not going to become an expert in java with this one.
This book is intended to the Beginners ,(though helpful to experts as well).
It feels like someone is talking java to you (not the boring lecturer of course).
Its just an excellent start with
