5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Quick Read
This is a great book.How many technical books have you read in 1 week?That's what I did with this book.I love the Head First series. They don't make great reference books if you are an expert, but the expert on the title topic is not the audience.

5-0 out of 5 stars quick review
After I borrowed and read this book I decided to purchase it for the following reasons:
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book to get you started
After reading a great book titled "Thinking in Java (JAVA 1.4)" by Bruce Ekcel.That book is so far the best book I have read on JAVA so far.It has TONS of information and for the most part the author does a very good job in explaining the information.However my main complaint with the TIJ book was that it was very hard to read at times due to the author's writting style.

5-0 out of 5 stars If I coul give it 6 stars I would give it 7!
Not only the content is way to complete for the exam and the real life, the learning metodology is a work of art, it is very light to read (unlike other technical books that dry your brain in one hour).
5-0 out of 5 stars Authors have clarity
Authors know the stuff. They didn't just reformat the contents from other places to make this book
3-0 out of 5 stars Not Enough End-to-End Examples
This book has its strong points and weakness. It explains certain concepts really well. However it did not have much end-to-end exercise for people to practice. Only 1 end-to-end example in the entire book as I recall. Therefore, it is hard to sink in what you have read. Especially, jsp and servlets need to have multiple pieces put together in order to make the application run. The example does not need to be complehansive, but will help the readers to put all the pieces together. If you are looking for examples to guide you through, then this book is not for you. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, the one-stop shop for Java
This book really is the one-stop shop for Java language information. While many complain that the page count is very high and the book is slightly heavy, this is actually a *good* thing. I love the fact that all this info is in ONE book. One book to buy, one book to carry around, one book to reference, one book to bind them...hey wait a minute!
4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, AND door stop
This book is really useful to have on hand, but it is HUGE for a nutshell book. I realize that they need every page to document the code it is just makes it hard to keep this book on the desk.Over all I think the book could have used more examples on how to make the method calls rather than showing the methods and what they do.Over all if you need a book that documents most of the java libraries this is an excellent choice, but don't expect to pick up this book if you have no programming experience and learn how to call these methods.

5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensible
I use this Java book more than any other programming book I've ever had. That's probably because it's a reference book. Although all the reference material I could need is available online, I still like having the book on the desk next to me so I can look up a class or a method without playing around on the computer. I became a Sun Certified Java Programmer several years ago and although I've read many Java books before then and since then, the only book I would be hard pressed to do without is this one! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedic tome on Swing is a greatreference
This extremely hefty book on Swing has just about everything in it. However, it is intended to be a reference on Swing, not a tutorial. The problem with the Java Swing API is that it is so large and unwieldy itself that it is difficult to write a complete and useful reference that does not reflect that fact. If you need a good tutorial on Java Swing, you might want to look at the Core Java books by Cornell and read the chapters that apply to Swing. Cornell manages to carve out the basics of writing a Swing application very clearly without getting wrapped around the axle in details you do not need if you are a beginner. Then, come back to this book when you need to write an application to get the details you need. Since everything in Swing is a JavaBean, much of each component's behavior is controlled by a set of properties that are manipulated by accessor methods. Thus, this book has a table for each class that presents the class properties, the data type for each property, the accessor methods, and the default values. In addition, the book has plenty of demonstration code that shows how to use just about all of the various Swing components. The book even has chapters dedicated to changing the look and feel of components and also repainting issues, which loom large in Swing. You can download all of the book's code from the book's website at O'Reilly and Associates. I highly recommend this book to anyone who already knows the bare basics of writing applications with Swing and needs a useful reference. There is no better one out there in publication of which I am aware.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book With a Bad Title
This is for people who have a working knowledge of Swingand who want a comprehensive reference on their desks. I ampreparing for the java Developer exam and thought this would help me get up to speed with Swing. But this is an over kill. Trying to learn Swing with this book is like trying to open a can of Coke with a bulldozer. It would have been more helpful if the Title was something like 'Swing Reference'. If you want to learn some Swing to get some work done very quickly stay away. If you are in the Guru class then go for it. 4 stars because it is indeed a well written reference (Juding from Chapter 1 and 3 and some skimming) But not 5 stars because the Title is misleading

1-0 out of 5 stars yikes!!
I can't recall a tech book so thoroughly unreadable! Maybe if I was more well versed in Swing this might make a little more sense, but seriously....it's great that these folks know all the inheritance lines and can spit them out in eight words or less, but seriously...imagine this as a classroom lecture..anybody awake? anybody still here? well, this class inherits from that or this implemements that interface, and if you look closely, you'll see how this references what we said 47 pages ago (or better yet, what we're gonna say 36 pages down the road!)...all well and good...but we're trying to write real programs and solve real problems....c'mon guys, we're not experts here, else we wouldn't be buying the book!! how about a litle real world usage...I don't have to time to check out the API docs to try and figure out what these guys are yakking about...a major disappointment. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars The Next Big Thing...
What held me back from 4 stars was the repetition. This is a small book -- easy to read in one sitting -- and I felt that there was some repetition in a few places that would have made the book tighter, smaller, and a better read.
3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but narrowly-focussed, error-ridden and frequently annoying
There is a lot to like in this book, and a lot not to like.I'll talk about the negatives first and then discuss the positives.
4-0 out of 5 stars It's not about Ruby Replacing Java: Read it before any conclusion
This books doesn't say Java is dead. It points the problem that the platform and (mostly) tha language has and try to show alternatives.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great source for how to code specific situations
Anyone who has been involved in programming very long soon comes to realize the value of the various programming cookbooks.The cookbooks are not for the person who wants to learn how to program in a particular language, but are very useful for programmers with a basic knowledge of the language.The idea is simple, take the most common problems people deal with and put the solutions into a book.Simply state the problem and then show the code to resolve it.So, if you need to know how to do something you can look it up, enter the code, and test it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource
This is an excellent book-it manages to make itself appropriate for both introductory and experienced Java developers.If you've ever looked at any of the books in O'Reilly's "Cookbook" series, you'll know that the book is organized into "recipes", which illustrate how to accomplish various development tasks in Java.
5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite type of supplemental reference manual...
I make no apologies about being an "R&D" developer... "Rob & Duplicate". I learn best by seeing something that works, and then adapting it to my own needs. Therefore, a book like Java Cookbook by Ian Darwin (O'Reilly) is the exact type of book I look for and use on a regular basis.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pay attention!
Nearly every book on this CD is one (or two!) versions old.I'm still finding them very useful, but I knew what I was getting.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of content, but could be so much better
Initially, I thought getting seven books worth of content for the price of two was too good to pass up. They even throw in one of the books contained on the CD in hardcopy as well, making it more like getting the other six books on CD for the price of one. Why would you want to buy the books instead? Because they're much easier to reference.5-0 out of 5 stars Seven complete "how to" instruction books on CD-ROM
In The Java Enterprise CD Bookshelf, David Flanagan, Jim Farley, William Crawford, and Kris Magnusson collaborate to provide the Java user with seven complete "how to" instruction and reference books on CD-ROM, in addition to a print copy of Java Enterprise In A Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference. The books on CD-ROM include Enterprise JavaBeans: 2nd Edition; Java Servlet Programming; Java Security; Java Distributed Computing; Java Enterprise in a Nutshell: 3rd Edition; Java Foundation Classes in a Nutshell; and, of course, Java Enterprise In A Nutshell. This single volume, highly recommended, book/cd-rom combination is ideal for the novice Java user seeking a quick start-up and rapid learning curve as possible, and will prove invaluable refresher and reference for the advanced and experienced Java user as well. ...

Does this sound familiar? You know Java well enough to write standalone applets and applications, even multithreaded ones, but you know next to nothing about the language's networking capabilities. And guess what--your next job is to write a network-centric Java program. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
This book is certainly a good reference book for me when I need to know about network programming using Java.As you all know, Java Network Programming is a vast subject, on which a single book can make no justice of.But Elliotte has tried and he is successful with this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive reference (3rd Edition)
If you're doing anything with Java and Network I/O programming, the topic will most likely be covered in this book.The author does a great job describing not only how Java handles network programming, but the concepts and details of network programming in general.The book takes the core java.net classes and describes each method, what it does, how to use it, what to watch for, code examples, etc - it takes the API Javadoc and expands upon it.

This book is miles ahead of other Java gaming books...For one thing, this is an excellent book in its own right.For another, the other existing books on the topic suck.

This is the first time I've been disappointed by a book published by O'Reilly. There are, in my opinion, quite a few things wrong with this book. I'll mention a few.

5-0 out of 5 stars You want to write Servlets & JSP's - Buy This!
I'm not a big reviewer. I find writing a challenge, even if it's a positive experience, as it is now. I started learning Java a few months ago and bought a number of books on the topics I needed to really create a java website.
5-0 out of 5 stars Precisely the book I've been dreaming of...
This book is exactly what it claims to be: a general reference to hundreds of "everyday" situations Java Web developers face. Just as any cookbook, it doesn't go into the "deepest" details about every little thing, and it does give examples of ways to not reinvent the wheel. Some reviewers see this as worthy of only 1 star... This is only a 1 star book for readers who like to reinvent the wheel and waste time on unnecessary details... if you're like me and have deadlines to meet, you'll find what you need here quickly and efficiently.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great bang for your buck with useful, very well explained examples.
This book rocks.I started learning Java about 2 months ago with the Head First Java book, which is AMAZINGLY helpful (even if you know absolutely nothing beforehand).Once I got through that all that I began writing small apps on my own, but found in many cases that the API (Javadoc) was hard to understand because my limited Java knowledge leaves me with no context in many cases.I would think, "ok, it says this class can do this using these methods, and that's what I want, but how exactly do I put this into practice."Java Examples in a Nutshell fills this need perfectly with excellent examples(!), explanations, and clarifications.There's only so much that it can cover, but what it does cover, it covers really well.
5-0 out of 5 stars Summary of Java
Great overall summary of Java with examples.Replaces short surveys, tutorials and cookbooks of Java.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book of examples of specific Java concepts
This book should not be expected to substitute as a tutorial for people looking to learn the Java language. Instead, it is a book full of short programs that each illustrate specific concepts in the Java language. If you are needing a tutorial on the Java language in general, I suggest "Head First Java", which is also published by O'Reilly and Associates. You can either read the appropriate chapters of this book in parallel with that one, or look through this book after you finish the Head First Java book. If you already know Java, keeping an updated edition of this book around as a reference is a great idea.

Editorial Review

The Java Message Service (JMS) provides a way for the components of adistributed application to talk asynchronously, or for welding together legacyenterprise systems. Think of it as application-to-application e-mail. UnlikeCOM, JMS uses one or more JMS servers to handle the messages on astore-and-forward basis, so that the loss of one or more components doesn'tbring the whole distributed application to a halt.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction but need some updating to JMS 1.1
This is a reasonable good book, as you can expect from O'Reilly. There is a good introduction in the topic (e.g. where is Messaging used for, what kind of messaging does exist, what is JMS), and it offers chapters with some practical code how you send and receive messages, and so on. It contains real Java code with excellent explanation.

The basics were covered, but I felt this book was a little outdated.There werent alot of books to choose from so I chose this book because it seemed like it had the most coverage.

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent Book on JMS
If you're looking to learn JMS, then this is a decently good book to get you started. One of the best things about it is that it's not very thick and it gets to the point pretty quickly. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A book worth owning
The author covers some background, but mainly sticks to the business end of dealing with XML using java. The book is set out so you can read the parts that are relevant to getting a particular piece of technology working quickly.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good but could be more.
Second editions are always great. However, I find that I dont like all of the API reference in the book. I would rather look at APIs electronically and talk concepts in the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction, a little diffuse
Compared with .NET and XML this book tends to wander and rat hole a little. The book covers the basics. The SAX and DOM approaches. It also covers XSLT and serving XML. It also covers advanced topics like Castor, JDOM, and web services. But most of the subjects are covered at a cursory level and do not serve as a complete introduction.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Do you have all of the tools you need to build enterprise-class applications? If you don't, then this book is for you! Authors Jim Farley, William Crawford, Prakash Malani, Justin Gehtland and John G Norman, have done an outstanding job of writing the third edition of a book that provides a pragmatic introduction to the latest release of Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE).
5-0 out of 5 stars Java developers will want this as an essential desk reference
Jim Farley and William Crawford's Java Enterprise In A Nutshell: A Practical Guide packs in tutorials on a number of enterprise Java tools, offering new material covering Xdoclet and Java 5.0 Annotations, JavaServer Faces, and the Hibernate API. Also included are open source testing and build tools, tips on writing SOAP-based web services, J2EE security issues and operations, and much more. Serious Java developers will want this as an essential desk reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference for an immense topic
Java Enterprise in a Nutshell tries to do the impossible - fit Enterprise Java into a nutshell.I don't think it matters how big of a nutshell you have, it would be a truly impossible task.Farley and Crawford, though, do a nice job shoe-horning as much Enterprise Java as they can into an 800+ page book.They go over many topics including all the J2EE standards like EJBs and JSPs to open source tools like JUnit, Cactus, and Hibernate.The book goes into enough detail to get more than just the gist of the subjects, but not so much detail to overwhelm someone looking for information on a particular topic.The book also has relevant code sections for the various topics outlining how that technology might be used.Overall, a compact, clear, well written reference. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars avoid - it's now obsolete
It has been 4 years since this book came out. Despite the many high hopes in the computer industry in 2002, JMX has run out of conceptual steam. You can't tell that from the text. But since then, Service Oriented Architecture and Web Services have garnered far more mindshare.
4-0 out of 5 stars Java Management Extensions
JMX is a Java framework for managing enterprise applications in a distributed environment. The book Java Management Extensions takes the reader from a high-level mountaintop description of what JMX is in the first chapter, aimed at architects and management, who might be investigating the new technology, to a trench-digging description of how to expose a class for management through instrumenting an MBean.3-0 out of 5 stars Good coverage of JMX basics but not much on practicle usage
This book covers the fundamentals of JMX but where I was disappointed was that it uses a pretty basic queue example and doesn't really get into J2EE applications and praticle uses.I was left wondering when to use it.If I had it to do over I'd choose another book with more praticle applications for JMX. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent RMI and distributed computing wisdom
I personally have a very high opinion of the technical level2-0 out of 5 stars Cluttered and Too much unwanted material
Explanation is too cluttered and a lot of material is off topic(threads, sockets,..). On the other hand topics like the newer 1.2 Activation is not covered in detail. I felt "Java.rmi" book by Esmond Pitt to be a more useful resource.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really nice book for distributed system developer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book if you've already been introduced to web services.
If you start reading about web services developed in Java, you'll quickly find that there are a number of Java technologies that come into play.These include SOAP, UDDI, WSDL, and others.Since you'll need to know about all of them to effectively develop your services, you'll need a book that covers those areas in detail.One of your choices would include Java Web Services In A Nutshell.4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference book
Like the other Nutshell books in O'Reilly's series, this too is designed to provide the most valuable information in the least space possible.Some people criticize the Nutshell series over this issue, but it is really the strong point of this book-it is designed to be used as a desktop reference.I have always liked the Nutshell book, and this one is no exception.4-0 out of 5 stars Very good book
This book is a very good book to start with web service. The explanation and examples provide most of needs to start with a web service project. It has sufficient details to use Sun tools. Readers can easily found most of their interests on this topic. The major drawback is the short of coverage on implementations of weblogic or websphere, which are of interests of most programmers. This is excellent book for starters or mid-level developers ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book if you know a few things about programming
This book covers almost everything (that fits inside one volume) in Java. Very concise and precise, but needs some prior experience in any high level progamming language. Very good examples. This book help me a lot to dive fast in the Java's deep waters.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ahha delight for your mind
I have been working in this industry for past five years, I have been addicted to buying books on programming, The trouble with most of the books is that they don't focus on people who are programmers, They just re-hash for-loop while-loop its really irritating to read such topics insay 1 hour that you can squeezeout of your time. And most of the time you end up dropping the book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good survey style introduction to Java technologies
Learning Java provides a good introduction to the Java technologies that make up J2SE. While most of the sections does not go into enough detail to fully cover the area (and that would be impossible without making the book a multi volume effort) they provide enough detail to form the basis of further research.
