Welcome to the Ranch.
You mentioned on your website that you are updating your books for C#3.0 and Java7. How much do you think you will have to change the Cookbook, which you only wrote this year, for Java7? Would it require a new edition?

The cookbook won't require a new version just because Java 7 is released.

Instead, I will revise the cookbook based on the types of recipes that
readers would like me to add. Thus, its revision cycle will be driven by
usage patterns.

Thank you. So the sort of questions we ask here might induce you to add more recipes?

Yes.

Moreover, I find that the forums on JavaRanch reflect the current needs, desires, and thinking of Java programmers around the world. It provides a window into the entire Java community. I very much appreciate it.

So do I. I have learned lots about programming being told off by people like Yingst and Friedmann-Hill whenever I have posted something silly on these boards!
