This book uses various typefaces:

  • A special monospace font is used to help you distinguish code-related terms from regular English, for. Here's an example: The actionPerformed method handles menu selections, setting the appropriate drawing flags as needed.

  • As I develop the code in this book, the new code being added will appear this way:

     import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.*; public class Intercom1 extends Frame implements Runnable, ActionListener {     public static void main(String[] args)     {         new Intercom1();     }     .     .     . } 

  • Each chapter has a real-world scenario, which looks like this:


    You're going to find real-world experience and insights in real-world scenarios like this one. These track what's going on in the computer industry, in the technology under discussion, or just generally in programmer's lives these days.

  • Notes, tips, and cautions look like this:


Notes provide additional information related to the surrounding topics.


Tips provide shortcuts to make a task or better ways to accomplish certain features.


Cautions alert you to potential problems, or to common pitfalls you should avoid.
