Is there any coverage of sockets and/or RMI in this book. How about Reflection? I need a firmer understanding of these topics.

How about an overview of the java class libraries, and a primer on using the Java Docs?

A step by step guide to setting up a PC for Java Development?

thanks.

Here's the content page that I copied from McGraw-Hill's website

To me, its seems pretty standard for any beginner's book into Java & OOP. I wonder if there're any sample chapters around that could let us review its style & contents to find out what makes it special among the others

1: Inside Java
2: Data Types and Variables
3: Expressions and Statements
4: Control Structures
5: Arrays
6: Methods and Polymorphism
7: Classes
8: Inheritance
9: Exception Handling
10: Multithreading
11: Files and Streams
12: Graphical User Interface
13: JDBC and Java Data Objects
14: Java Applets
A: Final Exam
B: Answers to Quizzes and Final Exam


SCJP 1.4 * SCWCD 1.4 * SCBCD 1.3 * SCJA 1.0 * TOGAF 8

Mmm... Pradeep, I do believe that the book is targeted for beginners... But u know, I've never seen Mr.Jim since the promotion started...

The book is based on the version 1.4, I think... U know one thing, knowledgable information about this book is hard to find online... It would be better, if the author comes here and fill the gap of the needed information about the book to the ranchers...

It seems like the promotion will end without the author...

No those topics are a bit out of scope for this book. I wrote the book with a rookie in mind. However, those topics I cover in my J2EE, The Complete Reference - along with many other advanced topics.
