Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the second edition: "This book provides an overview of Java … . Each chapter is supplemented with practical programming exercises. … This is essentially a good book. … the combination of code templates with good supporting discussions allows a competent Java programmer to rapidly expand his or her skill base to include network programming." (M. S. Joy, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (3), March, 2008)

From the Back Cover

The continually expanding popularity of both the Internet and local intranets means that the ability to construct reliable network software is a vital skill for many of today's programmers. At the same time, Java's comprehensive libraries of readily-accessible network programming features ensure that Java remains at the forefront of network software development. The first edition of An Introduction to Network Programming with Java provided a 'streamlined' work that could serve equally well as the core text on an undergraduate module and as the quick, clear, 'no-nonsense' guide required by a busy IT professional. Notable amongst its features were its numerous code examples, screenshots and end-of-chapter exercises. The second edition retains these features, but builds upon the success of the original text by introducing the following changes and additions: • Language changes throughout the examples (and the model solutions on the Web site), largely reflecting the significant changes introduced by J2SE 5.0; • Comprehensive update of support software, particularly that used for Web applications; • New material, such as non-blocking servers and the use of the DataSource interface and Data Access Objects (DAOs) for connecting to remote databases; Jan Graba is a Senior Lecturer in Software Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University, where he has specialised in the teaching of network programming with Java for the past five years.

Format: Paperback
I was looking for a good book on network programming and came accross this one.
It seems that author tries to cover everything from file access, multithreading, JDBC, CORBA and RMI to UI, things that, yeah, can be used in a networked applicaions, but do not exactly match the title of this book. Besides the important aspects of network programming in Java like JCE and JSSE are absent in this book.

I also found it very interesting that the chapter on concurrent programming is called "Multithreading and Multiplexing" - Java language does not support a concept of multiplexing. That term comes from the digital circuit design.
If the author's intend was to write a book on networking, there is too much filler stuff. If this book was supposed to be about an introduction to enterprise Java, then the title is a miss.
