Exploring Java

This book targets programmers that want to add Java to their
repitoire. It spends very little time covering the language syntax,
operators, data types, and so on. It jumps right in and covers
subjects ranging from creating Zip files to UDP sockets. Some
subjects are treated very superficially, such as RMI and JavaBeans.
Some notables that are not covered at all include JNI and JDBC.
AWT, Threads, Sockets, I/O and many other subjects are covered
in-depth.
What this book lacks in tables and diagrams it makes up for in code
snippets and examples. There are no exercises, though, which is a
letdown. Overall, it is well-written and easily understandable by
anyone with prior programming experience. (Bodie Minster - Bartender, Feb

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
