This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
And the winners are ... <h1>Grzegorz Klebus</h1> and <h1>shailesh sonavadekar</h1> There were 58 valid entries, probably about 30 people. So the odds of getting a book were really good! Questions? Comments? Should we do this again?

Dear Paul I mean a forum for researchers in the oop & java area . People can discuss about the research papers,ideas and problems they are encountering. how to go about research etc.
Hi Javaranchers, I was very excited seeing that I won (who wouldn't)! Thanks for the opportunity. Well... I have to admit that I had a closer look at Javaranch and participated in the discussion after I had seen Paul's announcement on a newsgroup (btw, it was well worth doing ;-) I'm happy that the other winner is a frequent contributor (congratulations, Shailesh -- seems like my major contribution was a properly formatted user name ;-). Anyway, I find Javaranch discussions very interesting and having a substantially better signal-to-noise ratio than the Usenet. Regards, Greg
