Embracing in full the new features of the Java 2 platform as they apply to CS1 topics, this leading textbook continues to teach beginning programmers how to design and implement high-quality object-oriented software. New to the second edition is a chapter entitled "Input and Output" (Ch. 7), which explains the class library used earlier in the text and explores other I/O issues such as streams, file I/O, and network-based I/O. Applets and applications are intertwined throughout the book to demonstrate computing concepts-applets, introduced in Ch. 2, build on the excitement of the web, while applications allow students to gain a clear understanding of programming concepts. Lewis and Loftus have expanded their coverage of classes and objects with this edition (introduced in Ch. 4) to provide more in-depth discussion of methods and parameter passing, method and static variables, and method overloading.

This book is both an example-driven programmer's guide and a keep-on-your-desk reference, with new chapters that explain everything you need to know to get the most out of JavaScript, including:

Scripted HTTP and AjaxXML processingClient-side graphics using the canvas tagNamespaces in JavaScript--essential when writing complex programsClasses, closures, persistence, Flash, and JavaScript embedded in Java applications

Part I explains the core JavaScript language in detail. If you are new to JavaScript, it will teach you the language. If you are already a JavaScript programmer, Part I will sharpen your skills and deepen your understanding of the language.

Part II explains the scripting environment provided by web browsers, with a focus on DOM scripting with unobtrusive JavaScript. The broad and deep coverage of client-side JavaScript is illustrated with many sophisticated examples that demonstrate how to: Generate a table of contents for an HTML documentDisplay DHTML animationsAutomate form validationDraw dynamic pie chartsMake HTML elements draggableDefine keyboard shortcuts for web applicationsCreate Ajax-enabled tool tipsUse XPath and XSLT on XML documents loaded with AjaxAnd much more

Part III is a complete reference for core JavaScript. It documents every class, object, constructor, method, function, property, and constant defined by JavaScript 1.5 and ECMAScript Version 3.

Part IV is a reference for client-side JavaScript, covering legacy web browser APIs, the standard Level 2 DOM API, and emerging standards such as the XMLHttpRequest object and the canvas tag.

More than 300,000 JavaScript programmers around the world have madethis their indispensable reference book for building JavaScript applications.

Our society has become increasingly reliant on software in the past decade; businesses have learned that measuring the effectiveness of software projects can impact the bottom line; and quality is no longer an advantage in the software marketplace (it is a necessity). For these reasons, the demand for quality in software engineering has taken center stage in the twenty-first century. In this new edition, Stephen Kan presents a thoroughly updated overview and implementation guide for software engineers faced with the challenge of ensuring quality. The book balances theory, techniques, and real-life examples to provide practical guidelines in the practice of quality. Although there are equations and formulas presented, the book's focus remains on helping the reader understand and apply the metrics and models. With this book as a map, readers can navigate through the complex field of quality, and benefit their organization by improving their processes and products.
