Knowledge of the Java programming language is not a prerequisite to grasp the content of this book. The book begins with an introduction to the basics of Java. Subsequent chapters cover concepts such as declarations, operators and expressions, control flow, object oriented programming, nested type declarations, object lifetime, and fundamental classes. The last few chapters explore topics like files and streams, localization, pattern matching, formatting, threads, collections, and maps. All topics in the book, especially the language features, are discussed at length. The theoretical explanations are supported by relevant code scenarios, programming exercises, and review questions.
