Fatbrain ReviewDesigned to accompany Java in a Nutshell, this companion tutorial provides practical, real-world Java programming examples. Intended for novice and advanced Java programmers, the book is grouped by skill level.
Like his previous Java books, author David Flanagan maintains his cut-to-the-chase approach. He teaches by example, and he doesn't include detailed documentation of the exact syntax and behavior of Java statements. Instead, he includes examples from the first and the second (Java 1.1) editions of Java in a Nutshell. He also covers the new AWT event handling model, the JavaBeans API, internationalization, reflection and object serialization. You will find new programming examples for RMI, database connectivity and security. There are also practical examples for I/O, networking and GUIs. The appendix contains Swing, a set of new, cross-platform, lightweight components that form part of the forthcoming Java Foundation Classes (JFC). The end-of-the-chapter exercises provide further avenues for exploring the Java programming.
