CONTENTS | PREV | NEXT The Java Language Environment

2.3 Summary

To sum up this chapter, Java is:

  • Simple--the number of language constructs you need to understand to get your job done is minimal.
  • Familiar--Java looks like C and C++ while discarding the overwhelming complexities of those languages.
