Product description

From Amazon

David Flanagan looks to be trying to corner the market in Java titles. Java Examples in a Nutshell is his fourth and is designed to be read in conjunction with the earlier books in which he says, it proved impossible to include all the example code he would have liked.

Like all good coding books it starts with "Hello world", used in this case to illustrate how to correctly set up your Java environment. After a few more basic examples there is a set of exercises which test your grasp of the material. From then on Flanagan tends to refer you to other books in the series to provide background and reference material relevant to the examples under discussion--a great marketing tool. In practice, any basic Java reference will provide this information. What they won't do is provide so many or such well thought out code examples for you to play with.

After the first few chapters you will be glad all the code is available for download as the examples become longer and more complex with ever less text between them. The simple Web browser example alone goes on for many pages.

Despite starting at the absolute beginning Java Examples In A Nutshell goes to the limits with sections on using RMI, JDBC, XML, servlets, JSP and lots more. It covers GUI programming, sound, encryption, internationalisation and other technologies essential for creating practical programs--all with exercises to ensure you really do understand.

While Java code is available from many Net sites the combination of organisation, examples and exercises make this a massively useful book for any budding or working Java programmer. --Steve Patient --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"This essential, learn-as-you-go tutorial invites new and seasoned Java developers to let go of worries about the complexity and sophistication of Java and simply jump in and try effective new programming techniques and code. It's a very good place to start if you're thinking of trying something new." Industrial Networking & Open Contol, April 2004 "This is not, perhaps, for the gnarled old 'sandals and beard' developer at the back of the office, but if you're a junior developer, or perhaps a highly experienced developer moving into Java for the first time, you won't find much better reading, and doing, than this." - Davey Winder, PC Plus, Nov (Rating 9/10)
