I've covered them in past editions of Sams Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days, but haven't found room in the 24 Hours book.
The advanced material covered includes Swing (four chapters), JAX-WS, Java2D graphics, Android apps, data structures, reading and writing files and the biggest new addition to the book, a chapter that covers closures.
What about servlets and JSP has your interest? I used to run websites with them, but gravitated towards PHP (in a LAMP environment) because deployment was easier and LAMP uptime is so great.

Thanks for the swift response!
I'm inclined to agree with you about the merits of the LAMP stack, but unfortunately the day job requires me to work on a legacy JSP/J2EE app. Still, your book covers the topics I'm really interested in, so I'll make sure I pick up a copy (assuming I don't win one first ... ;) )
