As you know this is a great community in which to learn Java and we don't have too many rules around here, but we do have a Naming Policy. Please read this policy and adjust your display name accordingly.
You can change your display name here.
Until you abide by this rule, you are not eligable for the Book Promotion.
Thanks.

  • It covers the very latest APIs: 1.4.2 (e.g. it covers the GTK+ look and feel), with tips about features expected in 1.5.
  • It's from Sun and was reviewed by the engineers that work on Swing.
  • It's designed to be quickly accessed -- dive in, dive out.
  • It's incorporated much reader feedback from over the years.
  • It's based on a website, so you don't check have to buy the book to get the information, but if you do you can use it in whichever form is more convenient, and you can check for updates easily.
