Product Description


"This is a great book for the beginner or intermediate developer -- experts should already know this stuff. It will help you create better, cleaner, more easily maintained code. If you work with other developers, I recommend getting several copies for the group...The Elements of Java Style proves that 'Good things come in small packages.' Physically, it's a small book, and weighs in at just 142 pages. However, the positive impact it can have on your work is all out of proportion to its size. That's because the ideas presented aren't limited to a single language, and the way the ideas are presented is very compact. The Elements of Java Style isn't about the code you write, it's about the way you write. Its central premise is that your writing style either enhances or decreases the readability and understandability of the code you write...Over the years, I've read lots of books that I would recommend to different developers, but this book is one of a few that I would recommend to all developers. Pick up a copy, give it a read, and I think you'll agree."

"The Elements of Java Style is a useful resource for those wishing to refine their skills in the language and apply them in a team environment."
Science Books & Films

"By and large there is little to argue about. The Elements of Java Style is perfect in what it tries to achieve."
The Development Exchange's Java Zone

Book Description

Renown author Scott Ambler and a team of Rogue Wave Software developers have joined together to write The Elements of Java Style. While there are many books that explain the syntax and basic use of Java, this book explains not just what you can do with the syntax, but what you ought to do. It illustrates rules with parallel examples of correct and incorrect usage. Not only will Java developers and programmers who read this book write better Java code, but they will become more productive as well. Programmers who take the time to write high-quality code from the start will find it easier to modify it during the development process.
