Hi everyone,

don't know exactly where to post this:

on chapter 2 on "Complement and Negation Operators" there are this lines:



but the actual result should be 1.21 and not  -1.21

I know it's a small thing but I think is good to be corrected.

thank you,
Stefan Banu

Hi Stefan!
The full code is:


On the third line the variable zooTemperature is reassigned to -1.21, as printed on line 4. The fifth line then reassign the variable again, with a double negation. So the result is stil -1.21

Hi,

In the introduction on page xxxiii there is a small typo in my opinion.

"The review questions in each chapter are designed to help you home in..."

should be "...hone in..."

I'm not a native speaker, so my apologies if this was correct and I got it wrong.

Kind regards,
Guillaume

Hi,

Still in the introduction, on page lx, I am wondering about the accuracy of the following statement:

"14. D, E. Line 10 includes an unhandled checked IOException..."

Actually, exactly at line 10 there is nothing wrong according to the Javadoc for BufferedInputStream.
But I have to admit, a lot is going wrong in this excerpt code.
And in the end, it is up to the reader to verify this for a better understanding for the exam.

Kind regards,
Guillaume

The IOException to be handled is actually on line 11, when a new FileInputStream is created.

You are correct. I added it to the errata. Interestingly, it was right in the Java 11 book. And this isn't a part we change so an editor must have misread.

Hi,

Since I'm not sure where to put this, I will continue here.

Although the rules for identifiers on page 35 are clear, the rationale on page 36 in the examples could be more precise.

In particular, instead of
 "@ is not a letter, digit, $ or _"
I would suggest
 "@ is not a letter, digit, currency symbol or _"

The next one is even a bit wrong according to the rules.

Instead of
 "* is not a letter, digit, $ or _"
I would suggest
 "* is not a letter, currency symbol or _"
(digit would not be allowed here)

Hi,

About that last one, I would also propose a similar correction for answer to review question 4 of chapter 1 (page 910).

It would be more accurate in my opinion to say "currency symbol" instead of "dollar sign".

We actually had currency symbol in our Java 11 book and a reader noticed this was wrong. The following is from the Java Language Specification. The word "currency" doesn't appear in the JLS so we decide to go with $ in the Java 17 book.

It makes no practical effect for the exam. They won't show you an identifier with a euro character or the like.

A "Java letter" is a character for which the method Character.isJavaIdentifierStart(int) returns true.

A "Java letter-or-digit" is a character for which the method Character.isJavaIdentifierPart(int) returns true.

The "Java letters" include uppercase and lowercase ASCII Latin letters A-Z (\u0041-\u005a), and a-z (\u0061-\u007a), and, for historical reasons, the ASCII underscore (_, or \u005f) and dollar sign ($, or \u0024). The $ sign should be used only in mechanically generated source code or, rarely, to access pre-existing names on legacy systems.

Hi,

On page 183, right before the section "Sorting", one can read

"...which is also a way of referring to that tenth element."

to refer to the element at index 10.

What one actually means then is "the eleventh element" (which does not exist).

Hi,

The following is a tiny one in the text and is more for completeness.

In the correction of question 19 for chapter 4 review questions on page 923, I would rather say something like

"This is the case for option A since the element at index 1 of s2 comes first alphabetically."

This makes it clearer in my opinion.

Kind regards.

Hi,

At the top of page 364, the enum value that is mentioned is Season.FALL, while the code (at the bottom of page 363) actually uses Season.WINTER.

Hello, all.

I found 2 possible erratas on book OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 17 Developer Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-829.

1) On page 443, in the example the result should be 7 and not 8 on line .

2) In Table 9.6, (page 485) it says . It should be .

Where could I find the whole erratas table for this book?

Kind regards.

László.

Old people would use "home in" because that used to be the standard usage. Recently people have started using "hone in" instead. So there's sort of a controversy. You might want to choose a different phrase.

I ran it again and still get 8. Which matches the book. Remember that with composer, the parameter (before) runs first. So 3+1 = 4. Then the instance (after) runs making 4*2 = 8

Agreed. This is already in the errata.

Hi,
I noticed a mistake one page 908 and page 961. On page 908 question 21 says to pick 2 answers, according to page 961 those are B and D. However only answer B is correct.

The explanation on page 961 says that since line D is commented out, the update is lost. However since in the code example a try-with-resources is used on the connection, the connection gets closed. According to page 894, this an autocommit edge case of which the behaviour is undefined, therefor the update might be commited or rolled back. Meaning answer D is wrong, as the update might occur.

Chapter 1, Review Question 5, Option B:
The answer is marked as false. However, if the object created on line 9 is eligible for GC after line 13, isn't it then also eligible for GC after line 14? Or does the System.gc() is interpreted as: the object might have been GCed and therefore might not in all cases be eligible i.e. it might not exist?

Looks right to me:

The calculation for the US/Eastern time into GMT is: 07:50 - (-05:00) = 12:50

Chapter 7, Review question 14 Option D, pages 410 & 934. The question uses "non-sealed" and the answers assumes that the question uses "nonsealed" (without the dash).
Looks incorrect to me, making option D correct.

Edit:
I just see this already in the errata.

Hi Jeanne/Scott,

I hope you are both well. This is only a minor issue on page 565, last sentence of the section entitled Linking Streams to the Underlying data:

"First, it looks at the source and seeing three elements."

Did you mean to develop the thought process further here?

I'm enjoying the book so far, it is even better than previous editions. I love how the essential information is logically summarised in tables throughout the book. Really, really clear approach to organising the content!

Yes, you're right. The book assumes the most "restrictive" here (and if it's eligible for GC somewhere in the code, it will always be so later on in the same code).

Chapter 11, page 616, "Basics of Try-with-Resources":

Also, notice that parentheses are used to list those resources, and semicolons are used to separate the declarations. This works just like declaring multiple indexes in a for loop.


Multiple indexes in for loop are separated by commas, while multiple resources are separated by semicolons. In addition, the type can be declared only once in a for loop.
Hence I don't understand the "works just like".

The book has two B and D. The errata says give yourself credit for D. So it is inconsistent but the book does match itself.

The intent was first eligible for GC. I like your justification on why it isn't wrong though . We did it that way in our Java 8 and 11 books. That said, you did find a good edge case of interpretation. have a cow. I made a note to see if want to to add "first" next time.

I prefer separate threads because it makes it easier to track/reply. But I'd rather hear from readers even if it is in one large thread. I don't get 2:50 when I run it. What locale are you in. [edit: I see it works for Manuel too]

It's backwards Option D is. "If class A is extended by B, then B is a superclass of A"
If class A is extended by B means

This makes A the superclass of B which is the opposite of what option D says.

Hmm. It was like that in the Java 11 book too. I think we meant to say "sees" and not "seeing". I'll put it in our list for the next edition.
