26. August 2004 Garage
Enter your Java Garage...where you do your work, not somebody else's. It's where you experiment, escape, tinker, and ultimately succeed. Java Garage is not your typical Java book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Accessible book. 8. September 2004
Von J. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Tons of books exist on Java. So why choose this one? If you are a professional Java developer, there are plenty of handy references that will fill the needs of your daily class and method writing. But really, do we curl up with a copy of "Java in a Nutshell" or "Java 2: The Complete Reference"? Okay so maybe we do. But rather than reading like a college lecture as many Java books do, this one reads like a discussion with a good friend. It provides an accessible style and superior coverage for both the beginning and advanced Java programmer. (** Plus it has information on J2SE 5.0.)

For the Java novice, the book gives entertaining, non-technical analogies that help describe basic concepts. It uses a direct and stimulating approach. As someone who has tutored university-level Java students, I recommend this book as a starting point if you are struggling with the concepts of Java programming. The first chapters are an excellent introduction to the fundamentals. After grasping the basics, you can then pick and choose which chapters are most relevant to you, as there is very little "chapter building" from then on. An indispensable "Glossary on Steroids" serves as a reference for words and concepts you may not immediately know or recall.

I also recommend this book as an introduction to advanced topics and as a reference for when that "how does this work again?" issue arises. "Fridge" sidebar notes provide technical value and entertainment. Also included are invaluable chapters on application deployment and using regular expressions in Java. You also will get coverage of Java 5.0 during the course of the book. You'll find that Java 5.0 is a running thread (no pun intended).

This is text with actual, working, compilable code examples, not a picture book. When it comes to computation, working code is worth a thousand words.

5.0 von 5 Sternen All about the Garage 4. September 2004
Von Victor M. Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Java Garage is a greate book.

I was fortunate to be able to participate in the technical review process for the the book, during which time I was able to read it. It covers the basics of the Java Programming language very well without bogging the reader down with every nut and bolt as to how things work.

There are topics in the book that aren't in regular Java books. For example: Packaging and Deploying Java Applications, Using System and Runtime, and several more.

Overall I felt that this book was a good source of knowledge as well as a fun read. Eben Hewitt has a good sense of humor that keeps the book lively and interesting.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Headache. 12. November 2004
Von Thomas Paul - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Headache. That is what I got every time I picked up this book. Too cute. Too many short sentences. Sentence fragments. Headache. Recipes. Like reading my 12-year-old daughter's instant messages.

First thing to note is that this is a beginner's book. You won't find that anywhere in the description unfortunately. Second thing to note is that I blame this on "Head First Java". You know how when a successful TV show comes out and all the other networks try to copy it? You know how they never do it right because they always miss the point? It's as if someone saw "Survivor" and decided it was a success because people ate bugs so they made a show where people had to eat bugs to win. "Head First Java" uses humor to help focus the mind on difficult concepts. It makes use of educational techniques that have been studied by scientists. This book uses humor to be cool(?), funny(?) but most of the time the book is just annoying, which is a real shame because there is some good information here and some of it is very well presented. Other times I was left wondering why he stopped and didn't finish explaining a concept. Then there are these stream of consciousness blurbs that seem to just come out of nowhere and go on about anything except the topic at hand. I assume the author is trying to be amusing and be less like a traditional technical book but he fails at the former and overachieves at the latter.

At one point in the book the author suggests that if you still have questions that you should get some Zoloft and take up a hobby like gardening. I think it's a little odd for an author to suggest that his curious readers are in need of anti-depressants but if forced to read this book, it may not be a bad idea. cya.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much filler for my tastes 3. November 2004
Von Charles Ashbacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Your reaction to this book will largely depend on how you like your training to be served up. If you prefer a "just the facts and examples" approach, then there are things that you will not like. Three short chapters, 10, 23 and 30, present recipes for lamb chops, guacamole, and flapjacks respectively. At the start of the chapters, there is a brief segment called "Do Or Die", which contains a list of "things to do." Presented largely as a joke, for example the list at the start of chapter 16 is:

*) Clean my room.

*) Take out the trash.

*) Double RAM in server.

*) Take over the world by ruling a race of mindless robots that I control through my Tivo.

they really did very little for me. My philosophy is that I purchase a book for the content and it would be better if the extraneous material were left out so the book would be smaller, cheaper and a few trees could be saved.

This is also a part of my next criticism, in that while the book covers J2SE 5.0, since it is for beginners, very little of the material new to 5.0 is covered. Enumerated lists are covered to completion and generics are used in a few examples. However, since generics are to be thoroughly examined in a sequel, they are not really explained. Since I am familiar with templates in C++, I found them easy to follow, but there is no question that the beginner will be confused. Java is now a huge language, so why not take every opportunity to explain more about the language rather than give us non-directional padding.

The author occasionally goes elsewhere in the material. For example, on page 201, immediately after the section header, "Exceptions and Inheritance", there is the paragraph:

"Look. Let's be honest. I don't like this anymore than you. I just want to go go go. Maybe get a truck and drive. Out on the open road. I look out at the pool and it looks fantastic. I know that it's ice cold. I know it is a burning freeze of water. But it looks so serene and inviting. Maybe I could like being a giant block of ice. Drop in and freeze and then bob up and down forever, like a cat dangling its tail on a fence, lazy, slow, back and forth. This clock wouldn't tick anymore. In a meaningful way, for me, anyway."

Sections like this just bored the yawns out of me.

Independent of the excess, the author does a reasonable job of explaining the basics of Java. The book can be used to begin your instruction in the language, although I would not recommend it. Since, there are so many other books out there that do the same thing, there really is nothing in the area of instruction to make this one stand out.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Easily Assimilated 23. Oktober 2004
Von W Boudville - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The cover is amusing. You see, I'm in a technology startup working out of a garage. How iconic. And yes, I do my best work in the garage.

But leaving that aside, the book offers a quick tour of Java 1.5. Which has been rebranded by Sun as J2SE 5.0. It shows how far applets have fallen. Remember in 1996 when Java came out and applets took centre stage for client side applications? Since then, they have been steadily deprecated. Now, out of 35 chapters, only one talks about them.

A fair amount of the book talks about Java features predating 5.0. Like the chapter on Strings, which could mostly apply to Java 1.3 or even 1.2.

Hewitt gives a quick walkthrough the major ideas of Java. The book deliberately makes no claim to be comprehensive. Instead, it might be seen as a reaction against, and an alternative to, the 1000 page tomes that try to cover all aspects of Java. Instead, you get here a text that can be easily assimilated.
