Perhaps this should be in Blatant Advertising, but oh well.
I clicked on the link to learn about your book, but it didn't have very much information. So, a few questions.
Who is your target audience?
What do they need to know? e.g. patterns, how much programming background, and how much specifically java knowledge, UML.
Will there be electronic excerpts available somewhere?
Do you have a website?
Thanks

the book is targeted at first semester comp sci students
with no particular background.
and the publication date is 4/18 i'm told.

beginner programmers, no knowledge of programming is required.

Nothing in particular. You will be introduced in the book about
Java, UML, and some patterns; the pattern presented are only considered as they arise in our discussions when discussing design to solutions to problems given in the book. Java and UML are introduced as needed.

Yes, there is plenty of both complementary material to the book
as well as code of the book. The website to look:
www.cs.uno.edu/~fred/OOJ/
The book is accessible to all readers and it presents programming with objects from the beginning while stressing design as well as good programming practices. Overall we introduce programmers via the design of components before design of complete applications, as well as the separation of the solution to the problem (model) from the i/o (view/controller).
Thanks for your inquiry about the book; take a look, and as Fred (my co-author) likes to say, it will change your life.

Ersin: I was already working on my post when you were creating yours. They were worded slightly so I left it there. Not trying to steal your thunder!
