Exploring Java (Java Series)

Exploring Java introduces the basics of Java, the hot new object-oriented programming language for networked applications from Sun Microsystems. Exploring Java enables programmers to quickly get up to speed writing Java applets, programs executed within web browsers.Even before the first release of Java, companies from Oracle to Netscape and Microsoft licensed Java to integrate with their Internet products.

excellent tutorial, not a reference

Great book, clearly written, lives up to the O'Reilly name. This is no "Dummies" book. Includes some discussion of the state of java and security, etc. I read the first edition, and the only thing it's missing is a CD... For a top-notch and complete Java reference, check out The Java Application Interface, Vols 1 and 2, by Gosling, et al. (Addison Wesley)

The best Java book in the market. Look no further!

I went through many books before stumbling on this one. The book is well organized and clearly written. All of my programmer friends swear by this book. It does not overwhelm the reader, and introduces the topics in a very clear and organized manner. A MUST read for a beginning Java programmer, but I would not suggest it to an individual new to programming.

Best single volume treament of Java

Although in need of an update for Java 2 (which I understand is in the works), I have found Exploring Java to be the single best treatment of Java programming for the experienced programmer. Even though I have a fairly extensive collection of Java books, I find myself using Exploring Java more than all the other texts combined.

It's a great book but not for novice.

Exploring Java is the Java book I used the most out of all my Java books which includes the Sun Java Series. It is a very good technical book but definetly not for a beginner and by beginner I mean someone who doesn't know any type of programming language at all and doesn't know OOP concepts. But for a someone who has done a fair amount of programming and want to pick up Java. I must say that this book is a must have in your Java book collection.

I recommend this to friends

This is the one basic Java book that I recommend to all my friends. The writing style is exceptionally clear and to-the-point. For someone with some programming experience, the book is informative and doesn't waste time. I suspect that novices will also find the book helpful, with with about 4 concise chapters on the Java language and object-oriented programming.It gives an excellent overview of the Java API, including the AWT, and it's the kind of book you'll use for *more* than a week or two.I'm pleased with the number of examples in the book: sufficient, yet not so many that the real stuff (the useful information) is left out. The examples are well chosen, and often are general-purpose tools that you'll want to use yourself or base your own code on. While the book doesn't claim to go into depth on the more involved topics, it does have nice introductions to some of them, such as JavaBeans.My only complaint with this book is that it focuses only on Java 1.1 and doesn't warn you when a feature being discussed is not part of Java 1.0. (Obviously, this becomes less of an issue as time goes on.)
