Product Description

From the Inside Flap

This edition of the Java™ Programming Language Specification represents the largest set of changes in the language's history. Generics, annotations, asserts, autoboxing and unboxing, enum types, for-each loops, variable arity methods and static imports have all been added to the language recently. All but asserts are new to the 5.0 release of autumn 2004.

This third edition of The Java™ Language Specification reflects these developments. It integrates all the changes made to the Java programming language since the publication of the second edition in 2000.

The language has grown a great deal in these past four years. Unfortunately, it is unrealistic to shrink a commercially successful programming language--only to grow it more and more. The challenge of managing this growth under the constraints of compatibility and the conflicting demands of a wide variety of uses and users is non-trivial. I can only hope that we have met this challenge successfully with this specification; time will tell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellect, definitive guide to Java... May 26 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is essential for learning Java, and should be read by anyone serious about learning the language. Pay special attention to the example programs, as they highlight special cases and subtleties that are not explained in other books, and often misconstrued by the authors of other books.
Bear in mind that this books is available for free from Sun Microsystems's web site. They offer it in either HTML or in PDF. So you can save some money.

4.0 out of 5 stars great technial resource July 31 2000
Format:Paperback
This book is not for newbie or non-technical person. If you want to sharpen, your java skills add this book to your shelf. Although JavaDocs should be the first place to look for technical specification but this printed, form has its own advantage. Specially if it's hard for you to read online grab a copy of this book. Book is technical, precise and well compiled. Great reference book. Hey, if you are one of those people who go for examples rather than specification then save you money for something else like almanac

Format:Paperback
It is Java's definitive manual authorized by SUN, as compared with ISO-14882 for C++. Any serious Java users should put it on their desktop for final reference. However, I don't think that it is easy to understand and fit for reading through, especially for newcomer.
