I saw your SCJD with Java 5 book. Will it be useful for learning advanced Java on my own ? I want to use only Java 6 to implement the examples given in the book. What are the problems that I could face when implementing Java 5 examples in Java 6 ?

Please tell me.

Everything in my book will work in both Java 6 and Java 7.

I would question whether this is the best book for you though. We had a very specific target audience in mind for this book - the SCJD candidates. They have some specific requirements, including building a Swing application, using RMI to connect multiple clients to a custom-built server, and reading a very custom designed data file to use it as a rudimentary database (certainly not SQL). All of this needs to be done using JDK 5 and safe multi-threading operations.

So if you need to learn any of those, then I believe that this is a very good book for you.

However when you start talking about "advanced Java", I feel that I would be doing you a disservice if I recommended my book to you without knowing more about what you are hoping to learn. If you are wanting to learn about web services, web applications, "standard" database connectivity, etc., then you may find that there are other books that better suit your needs.

Thanks. I was looking for something related to back end applications of java and maybe a bit of front end too. Can you suggest some resources for this ?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
