2 Java with Caffeine

In this chapter, we are going to describe one of the most important aspects of Java that has not yet been discussed: the organization of classes by  inheritance. This feature extends the previously introduced mechanisms of class declarations and method calls and makes Java a fully  object-oriented programming language. At the end of this chapter, you essentially know what object-oriented programming is (although the pragmatics of how to write large object-oriented programs is a complex topic that cannot be discussed in these short notes).
