BTW, Scott, do you really like the repository thingie, though ;-)

Also, the authors maintain an active mailing list for those who have trouble implementing the examples. They show a cheerful willingness to answer questions.
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.
What being said the book has an incredible amount of filler. It really needs a good editing. Particularly bad was the amount of really trivial information. For example on a text box named "Class Name" there is no need to explain that the class name goes here. This tendency to focus on the trivial flawed an otherwise excellent book.
On the negative side, I find too many typos. Also I have found some of the examples incomplete. It would also have been an idea to publish a page with corrections.
But overall, this is probably the best book on VisualAge for Java available today.

I've only just begun using VAJ. The VAJ mindset was quite foreign to me at first and this book has been EXTREMELY useful. Read morePublished on Feb. 28 2001 by Charles T Wise
