Effective Visualage for Java covers well all the aspects of this incredibly terrible IDE. If you have to use VisualAge, this is the book to get you started. How a great programming language like Java could get shackled with such a deplorable development tool is beyond me.

After drowning in click by rote IBM tutorials, this book was exactly what I was looking for! A tour of the Visual Age tool followed by excellent discussion and examples of design techniques, make this book a truly effective way to get rolling with Visual Age. This book assumes you already know Java and something about JavaBeans and doesn't waste time holding your hand on the basics. The examples move fast and can be hard to recreate on your own, but the source code is included if needed. As a manager of Java developers, this book was a great way for me to get up to speed on how Visual Age influences the architecture and design style of my team. I am going to recommend it to all of my new developers. I didn't have any problem with typos. I hope the author puts out a edition for Visual Age version 4.0

I like this a book a lot. It is a pretty detailed and effective guide to the Visual Age tool for Java. It goes thru all the setting up the tool, creating code, navigating, debugging, versioning, etc.. But especial attention is given to JavaBeans composition in Visual Age to which about 4 chapters are devoted. The examples to this topic are detailed and this was very helpful to me. I recommend this book for Visual Age Java.

At last there is a book that explains all the features and facilities of VisualAge for Java. Scott Stanchfield, who has been a major contributor to the VisualAge for Java user community for years has now come out with a book that tops it off. It's an obvious choice for new users since it comes with a free copy of the Pro version for far less cost than the software alone. For the seasoned user, the book contains much valuable information that is absent in IBM's documentation. The only unfortunate thing about this book is that there was no edition back when Version 1 was released.

Format: Paperback
As an aging hacker who cut my programming teeth on Lisp machines, AI and Smalltalk, I appreciate the authors' almost fanatical embrace of the concept of a well-integrated development environment. Now that we are finally beginning to recover from the atrocity of C++, with VisualAge we have an IDE that starts to measure up to the Lisp development environments of the early 1980's. That isn't to say that the book is just a philosophical treatise in favor of IDEs; in fact, only a few pages explicitly extol the virtues of VisualAge as an IDE. Instead, the enthusiasm of the authors makes the book an enjoyable read as it does a thorough job of covering the basics of the VAJava environment for beginners, as well as giving lesser known tips for experienced developers. If there has to be a gripe about the book, it is the relatively large number of typographical errors, but I don't find this minor point to be a significant detractor from an otherwise excellent book. Its 1000+ pages, along with the full professional edition of VisualAge for Java, all for under.. (price).., puts this book on my all time bargains list.

My understanding of VAJ increased after reading just the first chapter. This is not a "how to" type book, although it can certainly take the reader from scratch. But it offers so much more - a firm explaination of why VAJ is a better tool for Java development. I'm the type of developer who needs a clear understanding of a product before I start using it and this book does an excellent job of providing that foundation.
Also, the authors maintain an active mailing list for those who have trouble implementing the examples. They show a cheerful willingness to answer questions.
Highly recommended.
PS: I passed IBM's Visual Age for Java certification exam with an 85 using this book as my only reference and having never had any on the job experience with the product.
