The goal of this book is to explore the principle ideas of object-oriented programming using the Java programming language. It begins teaching the object-oriented power of Java by relying on textual commands instead of emphasizing the AWT or Swing libraries, providing the reader with a simple, generic introduction to the OO concepts using Java (without the language details getting in the way of the concept presentation). The author provides a thorough introduction to the three fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming: Encapsulation, Inheritance, and Polymorphism. The presentation of OO theory is augmented by interleaved examples that illustrate these concepts. Most of these program examples are 2-D graphics programs that provide an intuitive context for the issues that must be addressed when learning OOP. Additionally, since graphics programming is one of the strengths of the Java development environment, the examples produce interesting and unexpected images that engage and motivate the reader. It contains a concise introduction to using Design Patterns particularly the Template Method, Iterator, and Composite design patterns which relate to the graphics examples in the book and uses UML class diagrams to show the static structure of systems and sequence diagrams to show object interactions. This book is appropriate for readers who are new to object-oriented (but have experience with a non-object-oriented language) and for programmers who want to learn the graphical elements and capabilities of Java.
