A fantasic update to a great reference book.
am 5. Juni 1997
If you liked the first version of this book, you'll love the update!
As in the first ediiton, they have most of the Java package API's (see the end of the review) listed in the back along with an object model for each package.
The real value of the book lies in the front half, offering complete and consise descriptions of the changes in the JDK 1.1, so you can quickly glean what is new to the language.
Additionally, it offers sections on some of the newer features/API's such as JavaBeans, Reflection, Serialization, and so forth, even a quick comparison of the old and new event models with the return of the Scribble applet. Older sections on Applets, Java Syntax, and other categories are back and have been updated as well.
This book is a great Java 1.1 reference - it offers just enough depth beyond the online HTML documentation to make it an excellent source for a quick overview or refresher. It's not a book to learn Java from - but it should be the second book you buy. I can think of no better book to help in the migration from JDK 1.02 to JDK 1.1 development.
The only downside is a lack of JDBC, RMI, and security overviews (or package API's in the back!), which the book said would be covered in "Java Enterprise in a Nutshell".
