Congrats Richard Reese on your new book.

I'm curious as to which features of Java 7 that you offer coverage on.

Thanks,
Robert

The book covers all of the features covered by the exam including the new Java 7 enhancements such as using strings in a switch statement. What I tried to do was to provide more in-depth coverage of the run-time behavior of Java in terms the the stack, heap, and how memory is allocated for objects. This is almost always missing from other books. Without this level of understanding it is difficult to address the problems that occur at run-time.

Coverage of the objectives goes beyond a simple review of certification objectives.
