Java Gently is a first programming text. It aims to teach students, as well as those fascinated by the possibilities of their desk top computers, how to program, and how to do it in the best possible style in the Java programming language. In the process, Java Gently covers all of the Java language, most of its standard libraries and utilities and the prospects it offers for the future. In terms of programming, it covers object-orientation, software design, structured programming, graphical user interfacing, networking and an introduction to data structures.
