I think Java Cookbook offers a different point of view from reference and some other guide books. It doesn't have direct reference information, or general guidelines. Instead, it has subjects and simple examples to solve particular problems. You may find some examples too simple. It's pretty good for an intermediate, less obvious for a beginner and too general for an advance developer.
I had the opportunity to attend a course instructed by the writer of the book and I think he and his book deserves positive comments. I wish I had it authographed.

Example driven approach is very effective if you know Java but need some help. Coverage is very complete: 26 chapters covering such things as file i/o, Swing, RMI, applets, Java Servlets, JSP, e-mail, JDBC, XML, multi-threading, etc.

Hi Murat. THanks for the comments! If you or anyone else in the GTA wants their copy autographed, please drop me an email (my first name in the darwinsys.com domain) and I will be happy to work out a time for you to drop by the Education Center when I'm in town!
