    Quick Java Help

    This short and sweet pocket-sized Java guide covers the subject quickly and to the point. It brings together the main Java concepts in a single, compact format. Sometimes it's nice to have a feather-light reference in your rucksack.

    While tiny, the guide contains the following:

    Part I. Language
    Chapter 1: Naming Conventions
    Chapter 2: Lexical Elements
    Chapter 3: Fundamental Types
    Chapter 4: Reference Types
    Chapter 5: Object-Oriented Programming
    Chapter 6: Statements and Blocks
    Chapter 7: Exception Handling
    Chapter 8: Java Modifiers

    Part II. Platform
    Chapter 9: Java Platform, SE
    Chapter 10: Development Basics
    Chapter 11: Basic Input and Output
    Chapter 12: Java Collections Framework
    Chapter 13: Generics Framework
    Chapter 14: Concurrency
    Chapter 15: Memory Management
    Chapter 16: The Java Scripting API
    Chapter 17: Third-Party Tools
    Chapter 18: UML Basics

    The book is well organized and well written. It contains micro-snippets of code for virtually every topic covered. It's a helpful book to keep around for review or quick lookups. If you are new to Java but already a programmer of another object-oriented language, you could read it to get a quick, high-level overview. I have found it to be among the most useful Java books I own.
