Written by a trio of Sun Java course instructors, this book uses a straightforward bottom-up approach, starting with core syntax of Java and moving into progressively more graphical and sophisticated aspects of development. The familiar textbook style makes the title very suitable for self-paced study, even if you're not shooting for certification.
Each chapter includes a test, and the answers are explained. The authors use code snippets that are not overwhelming in length to keep their readers focused on the concept at hand. A large portion of the rear of the book is devoted to a Java 2 API reference, and the CD-ROM features a test limit to help you get psyched for the big exam. If you've got the time and dedication to master the material, this fine guide is all you need to get Sun's stamp of approval as a developer. --Stephen W. Plain
Topics covered: Java language fundamentals, objects and classes, event management, components, graphical user interfaces, database integration, thread management, and Remote Method Invocation (RMI). --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
