This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
hi Rogers Cadenhead, I found the book very interesting after seeing its contents in the index. I have few questions.
1. Does this cover the explanation of JVM ,like how a compiler and JVM works internally in depth,because understanding JVM is very important right??
2. Its great that the book covers web services with JAX-WS . Does it cover the basics like creating a xsd file,soap file and related files??
3.Without knowing Java ME , how does the book cover android applications ??
The book's chapter on JAX-WS covers how to create a client and all the components of a server -- the server interface, service implementation bean, and service publisher. There's also an activity where the reader creates a simple weather reporting web service.
The XML covered is an examination of WSDL files.
As for the JVM, the book doesn't get under the hood. It's a bit beyond the scope of a beginner's book.
