5genial, Jul 10, 2023
It is very thorough. Almost everything important about java is in there including JDBC, JNI, Java Beans, Servlets, security management, even the specification of the virtual machine and most is explained well understandble. It is the best java book I ever saw!

1Worst Java Book I've ever read., May 3, 2023
This is the worst java book I've ever read. The book is unorganized and the content is not suitable for the beginner at all.

The companion CD-ROM is useless.

If the authors would like to publish the new version for JDK 1.2, there will be a lot of works they need to get accomplished.

Simple words from me.... Don't buy this book.

2Not the best Java book on the market, Jul 6, 2023
Covers alot of fancy staff but has a great lack of contents. It seems like the author has rushed through the book just to fill it out with the Java 1.1 features and forgot to describe the import basics behind the language. There's now way you're gonna be a Java guru by reading this book!

1There are better books, Dec 29, 2022
This book is poor in contents, i have the second edition and is the same that third, i bought this book thinking that it would be as good as the second version, but it is almost the same...
If you want to buy some book about jdk 1.1 buy the java class libraries.

2Comprehensive coverage of 1.1 tools and 1.0 programming., Oct 21, 2023

Java 1.1 introduces several major features to Sun's Java products, such as Java Beans, JAR files, and more. This book provides good coverage of these new tools and techniques.

Java 1.1 also brings on several changes in the language itself. There are new methods that improve on, and replace, older methods. Sun's Java compiler generates warnings when a method has been deprecated. The examples in this book have NOT been updated, so you will need another book to teach you to develop proper Java 1.1 source code.

This book is a learning book more than a reference. It covers programming techniques that other books frequently skim over. I was impressed with the wide range of topics such as database, network, graphics, CORBA, and JavaScript. I only wish that it presented these topics with Java 1.1 features and techniques.

If you already are familiar with Java 1.1 programming and would like to familiarize yourself with the new Java 1.1 tools, you may find this reference to be helpful.

If you are planning to learn the Java language from this book, then you will be disappointed to learn that some of these programs use old techniques specific to Java 1.0. Java 1.1 introduces several new classes and programming techniques which you will want to know, so consider another book.

Personally, it amazes me to see how many books I have purchased over the years that were thrown together to meet a tight publishers deadline. While this book has many pages of useful information, it is not entirely up to date. Even the CD-ROM comes with the 1.0 version of Java, not the 1.1 version.

I was pleased to see that the entire text of the book is on the CD-ROM, along with the text of other QUE books, Using JavaScript and Using J++. I gave the book an extra point for this feature alone.
