Introduction

The ACM Education Board Java Task Force was formed for the following purpose:

To review the Java language, APIs, and tools from the perspective of introductory computing education and to develop a stable collection of pedagogical resources that will make it easier to teach Java to first-year computing students without having those students overwhelmed by its complexity.

We collect here the 13 submissions to the ACM Task Force related to the Java Power Tools. Since each submission was limited to 2 pages, the submissions act as mini-tutorials for the JPT and may be of some interest to the teaching community.
