The object-oriented paradigm continues to dominate the teaching of introductory computer programming.Objects First With Javais the first textbook to completely integrate the BlueJ Java development environment with the teaching of object-oriented principles. By using BlueJ, the authors are able to take a truly objects first approach, introducing the student to objects and classes from the outset, and enabling him/her to create an object and call its methods as the very first activity. The authors move forward from traditional approaches on how best to tackle the complex concepts of object orientation, and deliver an outstanding text that is radically changing the way introductory programming is taught. Welcome to the BlueJ revolution!
