4The #1 Java Guide for Serious Programmers: Fully Updated for Java SE 9, 10 & 11

For serious programmers, Core Java, Volume I--Fundamentals, Eleventh Edition, is the definitive guide to writing robust, maintainable code. Whether you're using Java SE 9, 10, or 11, it will help you achieve a deep and practical understanding of the language and API, and its hundreds of realistic examples reveal the most powerful and effective ways to get the job done.

Cay Horstmann's updated examples reflect Java's long-awaited modularization, showing how to write code that's easier to manage and evolve. You'll learn how to use JShell's new Read-Eval-Print Loop (REPL) for more rapid and exploratory development, and apply key improvements to the Process API, contended locking, logging, and compilation.

In this first of two volumes, Horstmann offers in-depth coverage of fundamental Java and UI programming, including objects, generics, collections, lambda expressions, Swing design, concurrency, and functional programming. If you're an experienced programmer moving to Java SE 9, 10, or 11, there's no better source for expert insight, solutions, and code.

  • Master foundational techniques, idioms, and best practices for writing superior Java code
  • Leverage the power of interfaces, lambda expressions, and inner classes
  • Harden programs through effective exception handling and debugging
  • Write safer, more reusable code with generic programming
  • Improve performance and efficiency with Java's standard collections
  • Build cross-platform GUIs with the Swing toolkit
  • Fully utilize multicore processors with Java's improved concurrency
See Core Java, Volume II--Advanced Features, Eleventh Edition (ISBN-13: 978-0-13-516631-4, coming in 2018), for expert coverage of Java 9, 10, and 11 enterprise features, the module system, annotations, networking, security, and advanced UI programming.

The Definitive Resource

After many years of developing in and teaching Java, I always recommend Cay Horstmann's Core Java Series to every developer regardless of their level of experience.  Why? Because there is something here for everyone. Obviously, I am not alone; this book is now on its eleventh edition.

This is that one definitive Java guide, a behemoth of a resource, that is incredibly well organized and superbly articulated.  Beginning with basic concepts to advanced topics, Core Java I and Core Java II are must haves and must reads for any serious developer.

There is one caveat: manage your expectations.  Do not buy this book and demand of yourself and the author to become a Java Guru within six months.  This will take some time.  Having taught several thousand engineers, I know whereof I speak.
