Wow,
Some excellent work was done here-and I am not saying it so I can get the book though I wouldn't mind if I did -but the coverage of this vital area is very professional.
In fact I fell in love with at first sight because it reminded me of my K&B 6! I do not know if any good book in any programming language can be written in a style different from theirs.

The language is so simple, a fresher registering for CSC 101 can grab the information Ok maybe i am exaggerating but in many ways its true. Thank you for the book.

However, I will like to know if prior to Java 7, string comparison was possible- as in equality, greater than, less than etc. or if it came with the enhanced switch operator which can take strings.

Is there a simpler way to memorize this hierarchy of operators/precedence thingy-it could be very tricky at times. Anyone to the rescue ?

The McGraw-Hill study guide books have a particular design 'pedagogy' that all authors must follow... so if you examine the other books in the series, you'll notice the same look and feel as well.

I'll put some thought into this... it is a challenge (knowing all of the precedences), even once familiar with the subject. The best way, is probably in understanding *why* the precedence was implemented as it is.

Thanks for the reply Robert,

I should have noticed. I have not done much reading from Mc graw hill Series though. I had a question about string processing in Java.


However, I will like to know if prior to Java 7, string comparison was possible- as in equality, greater than, less than etc. or if it came with the enhanced switch operator which can take strings.


Could you help out with that?
Thanks.
