Java Examples in a Nutshell

by David Flanagan

Java Examples in a Nutshell Synopsis

The author of the best-selling Java in a Nutshell has created an entire book of real-world Java programming examples that you can learn from. If you learn best by example, this is the book for you. This third edition covers Java 1.4 and contains 193 complete, practical examples: over 21,900 lines of densely commented, professionally written Java code, covering 20 distinct client-side and server-side APIs. It includes new chapters on the Java Sound API and the New I/O API. The chapters on XML and servlets have been rewritten to cover the latest versions of the specifications and to demonstrate best practices for Java 1.4. New and updated examples throughout the book demonstrate many other new Java features and APIs. Java Examples in a Nutshell is a companion volume to Java in a Nutshell, Java Foundation Classes in a Nutshell, and Java Enterprise in a Nutshell. It picks up where those quick references leave off, providing a wealth of examples for both novices and experts. This book doesn't hold your hand; it simply delivers well-commented working examples with succinct explanations to help you learn and explore Java and its APIs. Java Examples in a Nutshell contains examples that demonstrate: Core APIs, including I/O, New I/O, threads, networking, security, serialization, and reflection; Desktop APIs, highlighting Swing GUIs, Java 2D graphics, preferences, printing, drag-and-drop, JavaBeans, applets, and sound; Enterprise APIs, including JDBC (database access), JAXP (XML parsing and transformation), Servlets 2.4, JSP 2.0 (JavaServer Pages), and RMI. The book begins with introductory examples demonstrating structured and object-oriented programming techniques for new Java programmers. A special index at the end of the book makes it easy to look up examples that use a particular Java class or accomplish a desired task. In between, each chapter includes exercises that challenge readers and suggest further avenues for exploration.

Java Examples in a Nutshell Press Reviews

This essential, learn-as-you-go tutorial invites new and seasoned Java developers to let go of worries about the complexity and sophistication of Java and simply jump in and try effective new programming techniques and code. It's a very good place to start if you're thinking of trying something new. Industrial Networking & Open Contol, April 2004 This is not, perhaps, for the gnarled old 'sandals and beard' developer at the back of the office, but if you're a junior developer, or perhaps a highly experienced developer moving into Java for the first time, you won't find much better reading, and doing, than this. - Davey Winder, PC Plus, Nov (Rating 9/10)
