It's a compliment to say that this title resembles a telephone book. With over 1,000 pages (and printed on similar paper stock), The Java Developers Almanac, like a phone book, is organized alphabetically. Early sections look at Java 2 classes by package, such as graphics (including Java 2D), file I/O, network programming, and AWT and Swing. Early sections include several hundred short code excerpts, which provide key programming solutions.
The heart of this text is an A-to-Z compendium of over 2,100 Java classes, and a whopping 24,000 methods and properties. Readers get a listing of what's in each class, along with prototype and arguments. As an "almanac," the book contains no room for explaining what each method does--by using a clever set of symbols, however, each listing provides the details of each method (such as which ones are "final," "static," and the like), plus the version of Java in which each method first appeared (JDK 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3). These reference sections set a new standard of clarity for documenting classes. (Method and property names are aligned in the middle of the page, regardless of return type; a typographic convention that makes it easy to find what you need quickly.)
Later sections provide useful references that list the changes from Java 1.0 through 1.3, as well as PersonalJava, the Java Native Interface (JNI), plus some of the details of the Java Virtual Machine (with a listing of byte codes). An innovative index cross-references all methods and classes (including where objects are used as parameters and return values). Truly encyclopedic and remarkably well organized, this book is a virtual must-have for any serious Java developer. --Richard Dragan

This is not a book to learn Java or object oriented programming. This is an excellent reference for the experienced object oriented programmer.
The _Java Developers Almanac_ is a "must have" reference for contractors and "road warrior" programmers who only have a briefcase for an office.
The printing and paper quality is good too. The book should be printed every quarter !
Then, they need to change paper to that super thin india paper stuff. That's the best. It's thin and light so it packs a ton of stuff in a very small package.
I know that I can view it online, or I could get a CD. But there's something about having it in a book and open on the desk that makes it easier to work with than flipping screens!
The book is very compact, and does a nice job of compiling many classes together in one binder. It is only occasionally useful to me.
Much like the my old MS C++ run-time library reference, this book is right next to my computer at all times!!
Well.. Lesen Sie weiter...
The bulk of the book is just a list of method names, return types, parameters and other tidbits of information on them. It is handy when looking for method names at a glance. Lesen Sie weiter...
