  • Course details

    Do you learn best by doing? Why not learn Java that way? Learn Java Concepts by Example is a Java cookbook that pairs four Java programming challenges with step-by-step solutions. Julian Robichaux shows how to create command-line applications to search text and access a relational database, a GUI app to display and resize images, and a Java API to access third-party webpage content. By practicing these examples, you'll learn concepts such as regular expressions, arrays, JDBC, JAR files, Swing, Java math, lambdas, and RESTful programming—all within the context of real-world applications.

In this section, we're going to use the Jackson JSON library. There are two versions of Jackson, the full Jackson library and the smaller and more lightweight Jackson Junior library. The full Jackson library split some of it's functionality up into multiple JAR files so the main Jackson package is split up into core, databind and annotations. I find it a lot easier just to use the Jackson Junior library. It has a limited set of functionality but it's got everything we need in a single JAR file. I've already downloaded the Jackson Junior JAR file, so let's add it to the Lib folder and the Build Path like before. Right click the project, choose Import, File System. And import the JAR file. We can move this to this to the Lib folder like before. And right click Build Path, Add to Build Path. Before we get started, I also want to do a…
