All tech writers should write as well as this piece is written! Color levels a great idea... conveys at the "managerial," "designer," and "techie" levels of Zachman architecture. Kewl.

Perfect for the beginning programmer. I wanted advanced stuff, but that doesn't diminish the value of this great site. Good work.

I'm an Msc Student, also trying to learn Java.(I've bought 6 java books)

this site has a very nice way in teaching, the idea of more than one color is wounderful. However it tells the biggening the very biggening in java.

Excellent overview and the 3-color method was most useful!

The best first explanation on Object Oriented Programming for any starter in Java!!!
David 11-August-2001 - 04:04:36
Now I've finally decided to learn JAVA.

This was a great introduction. It sets a very solid foundation. I found the metaphor of the author who writes her Western in code to be very useful. The color coding was also helpful.
Ian Wood 08-April-2002 - 07:53:18
Very very cleaver way of teaching Java, the hour or so it took to read and do the "western" taught me more than six months of formal teaching
Dave Chaffey 22-September-2002 - 01:18:15
Wonderful! The perfect introduction for someone with absolutely no idea about Java, but with a bucket full of enthusiasm. Nice job.

extremely well-done! if there were more tech writers like this, i'd be a master programmer by now. my only complaints are the sometimes inconsistent variable names, and the lack of more content! i need more from this guy!
Doug Gempel 11-May-2004 - 16:59:05
That did make it somewhat easier to understand---signed ,from the old school
James 22-July-2004 - 09:33:02
Very well done! I believe you cleared up some of my OOP confusion. Thanks a lot!
Bob Crouch 07-August-2004 - 01:24:23
Finally I'm starting to get the idea of what an object is - how to create one(instantiate)- and how to use the attributes(variables) to express the actions/states of the oject. I'm just a tenderfoot - but this WesternTown is starting to grow on me.
Bob 12-August-2004 - 13:39:51
Finally, someone who writes about learning JAVA in a way that nonprogrammers can read and understand. Most programmers are horrible writers -- this was a refreshing read! I'm actually starting to learn about objects.

one of the best tutorials taht i have ever read...i really got attracted when he finally introduced "compiler"!!!!
khairul 08-November-2004 - 20:58:46
i've been trying to understand OOP for 6 yrs. This tutorial only took 1hr of my time to understand OOP. if i found this tutorial 6 yrs ago, i might already 'harvesting' 10k per month.. arghh!!
Zorgon 12-November-2004 - 00:08:08
I found this humorous... And it helped me understand the basics of Java in a really odd way... And it also gave me something to read in class...
Ian 04-May-2005 - 18:12:53
All sudenly became clear. A must for anyone struggling with objects.
Crickett 22-May-2005 - 08:43:43
I like the way this was all broken down in the three levels. It made it very easy to understand. If I had a question about why something was a certain way in the red section, all I had to do was look up to the yellow and green sections for clarification.
srinivasan 06-August-2005 - 07:57:45
This is one of the few attempts made to make java very simple .The author has brought out the complete idea of oop in this "Don't Fear the Oop!".He has explained the oop concept in a very realistic maner.so i greatly thank the author for his creative creation "Don't Fear the Oop!".All the java begineers must go through this creation.
EgoSoft 08-December-2005 - 05:11:53
Jos must have been a very special / gifted person, in order to be able to explain such a difficult topic as OOP in just a couple web-pages! His method of explaining and teaching will for sure live on in my own work...I'm impressed!
Shankha 01-January-2006 - 03:37:57
I knew C++. But still, the "object orientation" wasn't exactly clear to me. When I decided to make a transition to Java, I started looking for tutorials and I came accross this. Believe me, this is absolutely fantastic. OOP has never been so clear to me. Though it gives only an introduction to Java, the approach was really brilliant. So sad that such a brilliant author is no more.
TheGeekMom 11-July-2006 - 04:22:45
What a concise, accurate, and insightful presentation of the concepts of OOP. Few people have that special ability to translate complex concepts into a format that can be understood by the non technical amongst us.
DIVYA 12-October-2006 - 22:42:35
JUST WHAT I NEEDED FOR LONG... SOMEONE TO SAY IT SIMPLY AND MAKE PROGRAMMING FUN. . I WISH U COME UP WITH MORE OF THESE.. GREAT STUFF.. THANX A MILLION .. FINALLY I DON'R FEAR OOP
Dave 03-January-2007 - 11:00:03
Having read a number of papers to try and understand what OOP is all about, I stumble on this brilliantly simple piece of work! Although I'm still a little vague, I'm a million times more confident having read this.
Rahul kadian 27-November-2007 - 06:58:58
The best tutorial i ve ever read...
