Is the book giveaway for "Definitive Guide to Swing for Java 2" or "An Introduction to Software Construction with Java"? I wouldn't mind winning either one , but the banner says one and your post says the other...

first, you can try http://www.cs.uno.edu/~fred/OOJ for details.
why did we write it? about five or so years ago, we began a
major overhaul of our introductory software course sequence.
we looked at the texts available, and found none adequate for
the approach we wanted to take -- objects first, emphasis on
the distinction between specification and implementation,
emphasis on specifiy -- implement --test cycle, sneak in
fundamental patterns when possible, writing, small self-contained
programs at teh start considered harmful, etc.
so we started developing our own set of notes for the sequence
of courses. these notes evolved into the book.
so we really didn't set out to write a book. we were basically
doing curriculum design.
it's different from most of the intro books i've looked at
because it takes the above mentioned approach. but i'll admit
that i haven't kept up witht he intro java textbook market
religiously.
i'm sure jaime will weigh in with some unbiased views ;-)

Does itinclude OOPS and OOAD?I mean to say does it focus on J2EE architecture,its ideal implementation,design strategies or does it focus on Java only?
I would always appreciate such books at my library.So will I be the lucky one this time.i ve never taken seriously the books giveaway section.Shall I start now taking it seriously?Will it benefit me?I do not know?

That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
