I have been a software engineer for many years primarily working in C++.
I have just started working on a web application project where I need to write front end Java code that will interact with back end C++ code.
As I am still new to Java, I feel a bit frustrated working in Java since I find situations where it seems too restrictive compared to C++ which gives users the ability to pass pointers to methods for easy data manipulation.
It could be that I am no longer thinking like a modern day computer scientist and instead rely on old school manual memory management.
I would like to know if your book would help a C++ programmer like me get up to speed with Java to be more productive?
