Jeanne,

I tried the links you posted above, but the don't seem to work for me. The one for the table of contents is not the same as listed on Mr. Horstmann's site here. The link to the sampljust drops me at the Manning Publication's home page, and not the sample. I cannot find the book or anything by the author, but I admit that I have a better than average chance of overlooking the proper links. Any way, thought maybe you or one of the other Sheriffs could check.

Regards,
Robert

Welcome!

To the Admins: The Table of Contents and sample chapter link at the top are connected to a different book and publisher site.

Hi everyone and sorry about not replying earlier. I just came back from a conference, and while doing the LIFO thing in my inbox, I realized that I was supposed to report to ranch duty!

Any questions about Java 8?

What is everyone's favorite feature?

Cheers,

Cay
