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.Read more

'… if you would like to know more about the theory behind OOP and data types this is a good book'. Hubert Klein Ikkink, Developers Review
'This is a nicely laid-out hardback … the reader wishing to learn how to implement the various Data Structures in Java would be pleased.' CVu
'… provides an excellent OOP-based implementation of data structures.' Ann Fleury, Computing Reviews
'… very clear and free of errors … contains extensive relevant material in a very readable form, organized into digestible and practical chapters. In addition to its use as a CS2-level textbook, this book could also be useful to practitioners who lack a formal computer science background.' M. M. Tanik, Computing Reviews
