Sams Teach Yourself Java in 24 Hours helps Java beginners gain true mastery over the new Java 8. In this book's straightforward, step-by-step approach, each lesson builds on everything that's come before, helping you to learn Java's core features and techniques from the ground up. Friendly, accessible, and conversational, this book offers a practical grounding in the language, without ever becoming overwhelming or intimidating. This edition of the book covers the new features and improvements of Java 8, including:

  • Support for lambda expressions (closures)
  • Annotations on Java types
  • DocTree API
  • Parallel array sorting
  • Bulk data operations for collections
  • Collections enhancements from third-party libraries
  • Base64 encoding and decoding
  • New HTTP Client
  • Security enhancements

This edition of the book continues to use NetBeans, which has proven to be helpful for learners who don't want to master a command-line environment just to develop Java programs. Additional coverage includes learning programming basics, working with data and objects, programming graphical user interfaces, creating interactive web programs, handling errors, and writing Internet and mobile apps. Written by author, computer programmer, and Web developer Rogers Cadenhead, this book gives you the tools you need to "teach yourself."
