Hello,

I looked through TOC, and found some mentionings of new Tiger
features, like Generics. I am curious, how deep the book describes
new Tiger features?

Thanks,
MZ

Hi Mikalai,
Peter has talked about the depth of Tiger's features in his book in this thread

Here I extracted some informative words from Peter below... Hope it might be useful for you to know about the depth of Tiger's features in his book..


.......To cut a long story short, I put a great deal of effort into covering EVERY single new feature of Java 5, with one exception. The sole exception is metadata tags. This is a potentially powerful feature that will let you label code in a way that persists through to the binary and can be detected by other tools..........
