Product Description

From the Back Cover

Take your programming expertise to the next level with help from Java programming all-stars Herb Schildt and James Holmes. Together they unlock the secrets that professional programmers use to create world-class software. Inside, Herb and James apply Java to a wide variety of high-powered applications, each demonstrating different features and techniques. Examples range from language interpreters, Web crawlers, and e-mail subsystems to expression parsers, statistical tools, and financial applets. You'll even see how to apply Java to Artificial Intelligence (AI)! Each application can be used as-is, or as a starting point for your own development. From networking to parsing to AI and beyond, this book contains some of the most exciting Java code found anywhere.

Inside you'll

  • Explore the genius of Java
  • Create an expression parser for numeric expressions
  • Build a Web crawler
  • Design and implement a computer language interpreter
  • Develop a complete e-mail subsystem

5.0 out of 5 stars easy read, fun examples May 15 2004
I enjoyed tinkering around with the code examples in the book. Lots of neat ideas and the book filled in the gaps where I was curious about how some things work.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book March 1 2004
Mr. Schildt is a great writer and a first class thinker. This book is up to his usual standard. But I have some quibbles:
1. He uses AWT in a few spots. Does anyone use AWT anymore? Swing would have been more beneficial.
2. The code is not refactored. I would image Mr. Schildt had to do this because of the limits on book size but the impact of the book would have been much higher if had applied ExtractMethod a few times.
All in all, another excellent book from Mr. Schildt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done herbert!! Feb. 15 2004
I have to admit! The first time I saw this book on, I imagined a java book with same old stuff. The used price of the book was relatively high as well. My passion for java made me go for this book, and boy I am so glad that I did. The fact is there is a difference between knowing java and being able to use java to write some cool applications. The latter is the mission of this book. Whether you are interested in Java-AI or just want to write your own Internet Explorer, this book shows you how. So, what are you waiting for! Buy it, enjoy it, and when you are don e with every bit of it, pass it on to others.
