LEARN JAVA GUI APPLICATIONS: A JFC SWING TUTORIAL is a self-study or instructor led tutorial teaching the basics of building a Java application with a Swing graphic user interface (GUI). LEARN JAVA GUI APPLICATIONS has 9 lessons covering object-oriented programming concepts, using a integrated development environment to create and test Java projects, building and distributing GUI applications, understanding and using the Swing control library, exception handling, sequential file access, graphics, multimedia, advanced topics such as printing, and help system authoring. The focus of LEARN JAVA GUI APPLICATIONS is to use the existing objects and capabilities of the Java Swing library to build a wide variety of useful desktop applications. Some of the applications built include: Stopwatch, Calendar Display, Loan Repayment Calculator, Flash Card Math Game, Database Input Screen, Statistics Calculator, Tic-Tac-Toe Game, Capital City Quiz, Information Tracker (with plotting), Line, Bar and Pie charts, Telephone Directory and a video game. LEARN JAVA GUI APPLICATIONS is presented using a combination of over 1100 pages of FULL-COLOR course notes and over 100 practical Java GUI examples and applications. To grasp the concepts presented in LEARN JAVA GUI APPLICATIONS, you should possess a working knowledge of Windows (or other operating system) and have had some exposure to Java programming concepts. We offer two beginning Java programming tutorials, JJAVA FOR KIDS and BEGINNING JAVA, that would help you gain this needed training. This course requires Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. To complete this course you will need to have a copy of the free Java Development Kit (JDK7) installed on your computer. This tutorial also uses JCreator as the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for building and testing Java applications. JCreator 5.0 is available for download at the JCreator.com Web Site. The Java source code and all needed multimedia files are available for download from the publisher's website (www.KidwareSoftware.com) after book registration. Teacher Reviews: "The Learn Java GUI Applications topics are introduced progressively to ensure that students of different levels can progress at their own pace. Many exercises and problems are weaved into the chapters to maintain student interest and build confidence. Overall, I appreciated your efforts to make the Java product user friendly." - Carly Orr, Teacher, Vancouver, BC. "Having used Kidware Software tutorials for the past decade, I have to say that I could not have achieved the level of success which is now applied in the variety of many programming environments which are currently of considerable interest to kids! I thank Kidware Software and its authors for continuing to stand for what is right in the teaching methodologies which work with kids - even today's kids where competition for their attention is now so much an issue." - Alan Payne, Computer Science Teacher, T.A. Blakelock High School

Between the ages of 8 and 12, kids often start to wonder if Christianity is true. In Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, detective J. Warner Wallace draws readers into the thrill of high-stakes investigation by showing them how to think rather than telling them what to think. In this children's companion to the bestselling Cold-Case Christianity, detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity. Includes author illustrations and links to a website (coldcasechristianityforkids.com) where kids can download activities, fill in case notes, and earn a certificate of merit.

For many years now, the world has been insisting that everyone should speak English. But across the world, countries have provided their young with initiatives to learn other languages also. Yet in recent months, Americans have now come to realize that there is now a need for people to able to speak languages that are more specialized. Certainly the fact is that one language which many schools are now considering including within their curriculum's, not just in the USA, but around the world is Chinese. Presently, 1.3 billion people speak Chinese around the world, and of this, 885 million speak Mandarin (the official language of China), which also happens to be the most dominant dialect. Currently in the USA, only 24,000 students (Grades 7 through to 12) are actually studying this language, but their numbers are steadily growing. However, the biggest problem that many educators in the US are facing when it comes to expanding their Chinese programs, is finding people who are actually qualified to teach it. There are only a few Universities in the USA which offer programs to allow people to train and gain their teacher's certification in teaching the Chinese language. One University (George Mason) included a program which would allow people to gain their teacher's certificate for teaching Mandarin, and a total of 2 people enrolled on the course. This is where exchange courses come in useful, and are very critical to helping ensure that this language, along with Arabic, can be taught in US schools. However for those that are interested in learning the Chinese language, you will find it can be very difficult. So you need to be prepared to spend a good deal of your spare time, as you will find it will take some time to learn. However, through this book, we hope to provide you with some useful information that will help you to learn Chinese.
