Overview

The Java Professional Library contains durable, hardcover editions of our four indispensable Java references:

  • Java in a Nutshell, the essential quick reference for all Java programmers. This accelerated introduction to the Java language and its key APIs allows seasoned programmers to start writing code right away. The third edition covers Java 1.2 and Java 1.3.
  • Java Examples in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition. David Flanagan, the author of Java in a Nutshell, has created an entire book chock-full of real-world Java programming examples that developers can both learn from and modify for their own use. The second edition covers Java 1.3 and contains 164 complete, practical examples: over 17,900 lines of densely commented, professionally written Java code covering 20 distinct Java API's, including Servlets, JavaServer Pages, XML, Swing, and Java 2D.
  • Java Enterprise in a Nutshell, O'Reilly's classic-style quick reference for all of the classes in the various packages that comprise the Enterprise APIs, such as JDBC, RMI, Java IDL, Servlets, JNDI, and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB).
  • Java Foundation Classes in a Nutshell, a companion volume to Java in a Nutshell for programmers who write applications that use graphics or graphical user interfaces. This fast-paced introduction to the Java APIs that comprise the Java Foundation Classes (JFC) is also a quick reference to all of the classes in the javax.swing and java.awt packages and their numerous subpackages.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you're a serious Java developer, this is big news: O'Reilly has bundled all four of David Flanagan's excellent hardcover Java references and tutorials together, at one great price.

There's Java in a Nutshell, now in its Third Edition and updated through the recently released Java 1.3. In this book, Flanagan presents a comprehensive quick reference to every core Java API (beans, math, lang, io, net, security, util, crypto, and more). He also presents a thoroughly rewritten, fast-paced, no-fluff introduction to Java -- one that no longer assumes you know any C or C++.

There's Java Foundation Classes in a Nutshell, offering a high-level tutorial and detailed quick-reference for all the APIs you need to build applications or applets with graphical user interfaces or graphics -- AWT, Swing, Java2D, printing and data transfer APIs (including drag-and-drop); plus the applet API (not technically part of JFC but critical to client-side programming).

Then, there's Java Enterprise in a Nutshell. In this book, Flanagan and three expert enterprise developers present a rapid tutorial and detailed quick reference covering most of Java 2 Enterprise Edition: Java Database Connectivity and SQL; CORBA and IDL, Remote Method Invocation, servlets, JNDI naming and directory services, Enterprise JavaBeans, transactions, and more.

Finally, there's the relentlessly useful Java Examples in a Nutshell, which illuminates Java's core APIs, graphics APIs, and enterprise APIs with more than 160 practical code examples.

The breadth of these examples is remarkable. There's simple stuff: basic sorts, string buffers, factorials, basic exception handling. There's practical, usable code for I/O, threads, networking, and Web interactivity. There are chapters on security and internationalization, reflection and object serialization, Java2D graphics, data transfer, JavaBeans, applets, RMI, SQL-based database access, and servlets and JavaServer Pages. There are even XML examples, using SAX2, DOM, and JDOM.

Together, these books represent an extraordinary resource for Java developers at all levels -- not to mention an exceptional value.(Bill Camarda)
