About the Authors
  • Fundamentals of OOP and Data Structures in Java is a text for an introductory course on classical data structures. Part One of the book presents the basic principles of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) and Graphical User Interface (GUI) programming with Java as the example language. Part Two introduces each of the major data structures with supporting, GUI-based laboratory programs designed to reinforce the basic concepts and principles of the text. These laboratories allow the reader to explore and experiment with the properties of each data structure. All source code for the laboratories is available on the web. By integrating the principles of OOP and GUI programming, this book takes the unique path of presenting the fundamental issues of data structures within the context of paradigms that are essential to today's professional software developer. The authors assume the reader has only an elementary understanding of Java and no experience with OOP.

    • Presents and utilizes OOP principles throughout
    • All examples employ graphical user interfaces using the latest version of Java
    • Comprehensive GUI-based labs allow the reader to experiment with and explore the properties of data structures

    Concepts remain relevant nearly 15 years after its first publication. Main points are summarized after each chapter followed by exercises.
