4.0 out of 5 stars 361 FAQs!, August 18, 2004
This review is from: Official Eclipse 3.0 FAQs (Paperback)
For those Eclipse users amongst you, this recent book may be a useful extension of your physical library. The authors have assembled 361 FAQs under one cover. These pertain to the latest major stable release, 3.0. In the jargon of O'Reilly, a major competitor to this publisher, the book is the equivalent of one of their "100 Hacks" books on some computing topic. But here offering over 3 times more tips.

The book is designed for random access. Each FAQ is titled with a question that the FAQ then answers. So the directory pages should suffice in guiding you to an answer, if it exists, of course. Each FAQ's explanation can be read in isolation of the others. Though one very nice feature is how they cross reference each other where appropriate. The old fashioned equivalent of hyperlinks, remember?

The technical level is moderate. You are required to have the rudiments of Java. It is not the authors' remit to teach this to you. But if you have this background, the book should be intelligible.

Of course, the entire book could be online. But some will prefer this hardcopy.
