Aimed at those who have some previous Java experience, Java Examples in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition provides an outstanding collection of code samples that are designed to help you improve your programming skills--by studying code that works. With over 150 expert examples that illustrate a wide range of Java APIs, this volume definitely can bring your knowledge of Java to the next level.
Many programming titles rely on code excerpts to illustrate key programming concepts. This book reverses that approach by emphasizing the code itself, enhancing it with introductory material and explanations. While some short examples illustrate simple algorithms (such as random-number generation and sorting), many of the examples are substantial: for example, how to create a multithreaded Web server, a proxy server, and even a simple Web browser (by using built-in Swing classes for a user interface). These longer examples occupy several pages; generally, they're well-commented models of coding clarity.
This second edition adds extensive support for the Java 2 JDK 1.3 standard. Later sections provide sample code on most recent developments in enterprise APIs, including Swing, JDBC, and XML. This text concludes with one of the best short tutorials that you're likely to find anywhere on JSP and servlet programming, including excellent detail on deploying JSP-based Web applications.
Although it's designed to be a companion title to Java in a Nutshell and other O'Reilly Java offerings, there's little doubt that this book stands on its own quite well. And, given the short exercises at the end of every chapter that help you expand your command of Java features and APIs, this is a worthy and up-to-date resource for all levels of Java programmers. --Richard Dragan

"This essential, learn-as-you-go tutorial invites new and seasoned Java developers to let go of worries about the complexity and sophistication of Java and simply jump in and try effective new programming techniques and code. It's a very good place to start if you're thinking of trying something new." Industrial Networking & Open Contol, April 2004 "This is not, perhaps, for the gnarled old 'sandals and beard' developer at the back of the office, but if you're a junior developer, or perhaps a highly experienced developer moving into Java for the first time, you won't find much better reading, and doing, than this." - Davey Winder, PC Plus, Nov (Rating 9/10)
