2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 30, 2007
Format: Paperback
Many readers coming to this might like what is described about java. Very different from RPG. The biggest change is the intrinsic object oriented nature of java. If you use RPG 3, then this will certainly be the most distinctive part of the narrative. RPG 4 programmers will at least be familiar.

There are many neat features about java that you should note. Like the higher level data structures, Vector, HashSet, Hashtable etc. These have been thoroughly debugged, and can save you much time recoding. Another difference is a full widget system. RPG came of age when graphics meant character oriented tables. Speaking of characters, java comes with internationalisation. Whereas RPG shows its heritage from an ascii background.

Unsurprisingly, the book has an extensive section on connecting java to a database. Some readers will perk up at this. You can closely compare functionality with RPG. Here, the latter is probably still stronger. But the java designers at Sun have done a competent job with JDBC.

I ordered this to help me grow with the new technology. Java is every where, and as a longtime IBM RGP programmer, it is hard to keep up. This wont make me an expert, but I hope it will be enough to get an employer to take a second look at my skills and give me a chance. I like the book.
