Now in its fourth edition, Java in Easy Steps begins by explaining how to download and install the free Java Development Kit (JDK) so readers can quickly begin to create their own executable programs by copying the examples. This book assumes no previous knowledge of any programming language, so it is ideal for the newcomer to computer programming. Each chapter builds the user's knowledge of Java, and by the end they gain a sound understanding of the Java language. Finally readers will be able to write their own Java programs and compile them into executable files that may be run on any Java-enabled computer.
