Cisco Networking Academy Program Fundamentals of Java Programming Companion Guide is the Cisco approved textbook that supplements the Sun Microsystems-sponsored Cisco Networking Academy(r) Program web-based curriculum. Java is a popular, multiplatformed, object-oriented programming language that focuses on object manipulation and interaction rather than programming logic (like C, C++). The in-depth coverage in this guide provides students with the necessary knowledge to help them prepare for the Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform and employment as Java programmers. The Companion Guide introduces students to object-oriented programming, language fundamentals, and the Java Application Programming Interface (API). Students will learn how to create classes, objects, and applications and use the Java language's object-oriented technologies to solve business problems.

Cisco Press is a collaboration between Cisco Systems(r), Inc., and Pearson Education that is charged with developing high-quality, cutting-edge educational and reference products for the networking industry. The products in the Cisco Networking Academy Program series are designed to prepare students for careers in the exciting networking field.
