Table of contents


Welcome to Programming Fundamentals with Java.

This book is a compilation of material that I have published over the years for the benefit of those students who desire to enroll in my beginning OOPcourse but who don't have the required prerequisite knowledge for that course. If you fall in that category, or if you just want to get a good introduction tocomputer programming, you may find this material useful.

Even if you have completed a programming fundamentals course in another language, or you have considerable programming experience in another language, you maystill find this material useful as an introduction to the Java programming languageand its syntax.

In case you decide that you don't need to study the material in this group of modules, you may still find it useful to take a look at the following threemodules. These three modules will show you how to configure your computer and get started programming in Java.

You may also find it useful to search the web for and study a few tutorials on the Windows "command prompt" as well as a few tutorials on Windows batchfiles. Here are a couple of possibilities that I found with a rudimentary search:

If you are using a different operating system, you may need to find similar tutorials that match up with the operating system that you areusing.

Most of the topics in this Book are divided into two modules -- a primary module and a review module. The review modules contain review questions and answers keyed tothe material in the primary modules.

In addition to the modules contained in this group, you will find several of my other tutorials on programming fundamentals at Obg0510: Programming Fundamentals . Those tutorials are still in their original html format and you may need to goto the Legacy Site to access them fully. They are awaiting conversion to cnxml, which is a requirement for publishing them as modules oncnx.org.

As you work your way through the modules in this group, you should prepare yourself for the more challenging ITSE 2321 OOP tracks identified below:

The DrJava IDE and the Java Development K It

In order to work with the material in this group of Programming Fundamentals modules, you will need access to Oracle's Java Development Kit (JDK) . You will also need access to a text editor, preferably one that is tailored to the creation of Java programs. One suchfreely available text editor is named DrJava .

However, DrJava is more than just a text editor. It is an Integrated Development Environment ((IDE) that is designed for use by students learning how to program in the Java programming language. Irecommend it for use with this group of Programming Fundamentals modules.

See A Quick Start Guide to DrJava for instructions on downloading and installing both the DrJava IDE and Oracle'sJava Development Kit (JDK) .

The Quick Start Guide also provides instructions for using the DrJava IDE.


This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.

Financial : Although the Connexions site makes it possible for you to download a PDF file for thismodule at no charge, and also makes it possible for you to purchase a pre-printed version of the PDF file, you should beaware that some of the HTML elements in this module may not translate well into PDF.

I also want you to know that, I receive no financial compensation from the Connexions website even if you purchase the PDF version of the module.

In the past, unknown individuals have copied my modules from cnx.org, converted them to Kindle books, and placed them for sale on Amazon.com showing me as the author. Ineither receive compensation for those sales nor do I know who does receive compensation. If you purchase such a book, please beaware that it is a copy of a module that is freely available on cnx.org and that it was made and published withoutmy prior knowledge.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
