The Barnes & Noble Review
Today, you're going to do something new with Java. Maybe you'll use a Java package you've rarely worked with, or implement a different architecture, or perform a task that's unfamiliar to you. Where are you going to find the immediate solutions you need? In Java 2 Black Book, Second Edition.

Steven Holzner covers Java 2, Version 1.3 from soup to nuts, never hesitating to address complex techniques when necessary. Each chapter starts with a high-level introduction to the essence of its topic, leading to a series of specific techniques and code examples that address the challenges developers encounter most often.

If you're building programs with user interfaces, you'll find the book's 600-plus pages on AWT and Swing indispensable (and that's not counting the two bonus chapters on CD-ROM covering Swing tables, trees, and text components). There's extensive coverage of XML (both DOM and SAX); practical help with creating packages, interfaces, and JAR files; expert exception handling techniques, and much more. Java 2's too large for anyone to know it all, but with Java 2 Black Book, Second Edition, your solution is close at hand. (Bill Camarda)
