This book anchors its pedagogy in the program ProgramLive that you may find at extras.springer.com, a complete multimedia module in itself. Containing over 250 recorded lectures with synchronized animation, ProgramLive allows users to see, first-hand and in real time, processes like stepwise refinement of algorithms, development of loops, execution of method calls and associated changes to the call stack, and much more. The zip file also includes all programs from the book, 35 guided instruction sets for closed lab sessions, and a 70-page hyperlinked glossary.
With its comprehensive appendices and bibliography, systematic approach, and helpful interactive programs on extras.springer.com, this exciting work provides the key tools they needed for successful object-oriented programming. It is ideal for use at the undergraduate and graduate beginning level, whether in the classroom or for distance learning; furthermore, the text will also be a valuable self-study resource or reference volume in any programmer's library.

From the reviews of the first edition:
"I would like to express my enthusiasm reading this excellent text on programming with Java. ... I would like to emphasize that this book is comprehensive, conceptually and methodically up-to-date, its content is both rigorously and clearly written. It is obvious that one of the authors' aims was to supply a easy learning textbook in this respect; this is the reason, why the book benefits, among other facilities, by a rather useful multimedia support on programming in Java." (Tudor Balanescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1082, 2006)
