The Java Courseware
Easily importable Eclipse projects

If you are planning to do build a career as a software developer, you have to be prepared to get trained and re-trained every couple of years. But how? If you’re lucky, your employer will send you to classes, otherwise you have to spend substantial amount of time self-studying. Back in the nineties I was hungry for the courseware. Going through these thick manuals on hot technologies was the shortest way to master them.

Beside software developers, university professors and contract instructors are also looking for the courseware that would help them to teach the class without major surprises and failures in front of the students. No matter who you are, I’d like to offer you some extra materials that’ll help you in learning or teaching programming in Java and Java EE.

Last year, Wiley/Wrox had published my Java Tutorial. 24-hour trainer. It was already structured as lessons, had homework, came with video screencasts and included easily importable Eclipse projects for each lesson. Then, I created a supporting site where you can download solutions for the assignments. Some of my students offered interesting versions of the solutions and I let them upload their projects to the same site.

Then, I started eating my own dog food and taught a number of online Java training classes using this book as a textbook. While doing this I created presentation slides and used them in classes. These slides included new information and tons of links to additional studying materials. Today, I finished uploading the slides, and they are publicly available under the Wiki section on the site with solutions.

Enjoy your Java!
