Hi Ian,
I wish I had bought your Cookbook a little earlier as I found a lot of recipies useful especially the String manipulation & Date parts.Hope that the 2nd ed lives upto its predecessors name.

Since the second edition is covered with many great features of J2SE 5.0, I believe that there are many new topics which are valuable to us. The sample chapter got a taste for Tiger's new feature(Generics, foreach and Enumerations)...

I love that chapter also... I do believe that there are many of such Tiger's new features recipes in other chapters as well...

I think Cook book will help to prepare for the Tiger beta exam. So winners are lucky.

Thanks for your kind words about my book.

While I don't have 100% coverage of every new feature - the book was already over 800 pages, and we didn't want to have to sell a moving dolly with every copy :-) - I do talk about (I think) all the most important ones that you are likely to need on a frequent basis.

Cheers
Ian

Does this version of the book use the NIO api at all?

Nigel, I don't see it in the TOC of the book as well...

I think it's eliminated with intention, since most of the common problems in the real life can be dealt with other APIs as well... :roll:
