• Flexible, convenient presentation – The JVM is not a physical chip but a piece of software found on every computer in the world, so students can write and run their exercises on any computer without worrying about compatibility; ideal for commuter or distance education, or schools with limited resources.
• Focus on the JVM Language — Explains how the Java language actually causes things to happen.
• Presentation of alternate architectures – Compares the JVM to the original IBM-PC chip, the Pentium, the Power PC, and an embedded controller chip to explore how other computers express the same principles.
• Principle-based approach — Allows transfer between machines.
• Multi-Language Examples — Integrate several computer operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Mac, BeOS and Solaris; students do not need a prior understanding of Java.
• Tested code examples – Eliminates errors that could confuse students.
• Optional chapters that are tunable to individual equipment.
• Key Issues — Summarizes each chapter with a brief review of important concepts.

Patrick Juola received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1995, specializing in computational psycholinguistics. He worked as a postdoc in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford from 1995-8, then accepted a teaching position at Duquesne University. His research interests include computational psycholinguistics, humanities computing, digital and linguistic forensics, and computer security. This book is an outgrowth of his teaching experiences at Duquesne.
