10. Object Oriented Programming using Java by Rudolf Pecinovsk

OOP - Learn Object Oriented Thinking & ProgrammingThe whole textbook is designed as a record of the dialogue of the author with his daughter who wants to learn programming.

The author endeavors not to explain the Java programming language to the readers, but to teach them real programming. To teach them how to think and design the program as the experienced programmers do.

Entire matter is explained in a very illustrative way which means even a current secondary school student can understand it quite simply

12. Object-oriented Programming in Java Textbook by Richard L. Halterman

Object Oriented Programming using Java

This book provides step-by-step lessons that cover OOP (object-oriented programming) and the Java language comprehensively with clear examples, code, and figures. You’ll use Java’s built-in objects to create applets. Design your own classes and assemble them into sophisticated, complete programs that run inside an HTML browser or as stand-alone applications. Create objects using the simple ideas of sequence, selection, and iteration. You’ll delve into Java’s Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) to create full-color, multimedia Java applets, components, and containers. Explore Java’s versatile input/output streams and utility classes. Master using threads and networking to create Web-capable client/server programs.

It is aimed at students with little or no programming experience, and it uses DrJava as a vehicle for student experimentation object-oriented programming concepts.

Object-oriented Programming in Java is available under a Creative Commons license.
