About the Authors
  • JavaTech is a practical introduction to the Java programming language with an emphasis on the features that benefit technical computing. After presenting the basics of object-oriented programming in Java, it examines introductory topics such as graphical interfaces and thread processes. It goes on to review network programming and develops Web client-server examples for tasks such as monitoring remote devices. The focus then shifts to distributed computing with RMI. Finally, it examines how Java programs can access the local platform and interact with hardware.

    • Introduces Java Micro Edition and UML
    • Focusses on practical ways that Java can aid technical computing, such as networking, graphical user interfaces and distributed applications
    • Supported by extensive online web site, with instructional materials, applets and application codes - see
