Minor typographical errors whose corrections are obvious have not been given here.
page 48, Programming Exercise 2:
Delete the line:
totalNumberOfClams = numberOfApples * clamsPerApple;
page 108, fourth line from bottom:
Change "String" to "int" so the line reads as follows:
"is an assignment statement that sets the value of the int variable appleCount to"
page 207, Programming Exercise 7:
Change first line of exercise by changing "problem 7" to "problem 9"
page 253, Display 4.11 (part 1 of 3), the method setPrice:
Change "groupCount" to "count" throughout. (Four changes, including one in the header comment and one in the parameter list.)
page 278, if-else-statement just before Self-Test Questions:
Change "speciesName" to "getName."
page 321, eighth line down:
Delete the word "static." (The method is not static.)
page 373, answer number 21:
change "private" to "public" in the definition of the method write.
page 377, Programming Exercise 6:
Change "Programming Exercise 3/page 175" at the end to "Chapter 3 Programming Exercise 6/page 206."
page 378, Programming Exercise 7, ninth line from the bottom:
Add the word "one" so it reads:
"reset methods (one to set the value, one to set the type, and one to set both);"
System.out.println("The second entry is " + entry);
entry is actually the third entry. There are two more output statements on the same page with the same mistake.
page 447, Chapter Summary:
One entry is repeated.
The text at the top of the page says "In Java, n = 42 does not return a value."
This is incorrect. In Java, the assignment operator returns the value of the right-hand side, so n = 42 returns 42. A possible rewording would be:
"In C and C++ the expression n = 42 returns the value 42, which either is or will be converted to a boolean value depending on what version of C or C++ you are using. In Java, n = 42 also returns the value 42, but 42 is not of type boolean in Java nor will it convert to type boolean. So, in Java, this mistake will produce a compiler error message. (See page 168 for more details.)"
