I have been going through the latest Errata list and have noticed one technical error, and secondly an issue whereby the examples should be updated to reflect updated answers in the end of chapter questions. I was wondering if it is the authors who update the errata list or whether it is someone else.

The two items I have found, which I have also submitted for Errata correction / update are as follows.

There has been an errata issued to make a correction on page 245 in the second doGet method to remove the line beginning String foo =.
However, this errata update will cause a compilation failure on the second from last line, which is out.println("Foo: " + foo);.

Considering that there has been an errata made to correct question 1 on page 215 to include option C as a valid answer, does this not implie that the example on page 205 should be updated accordingly as well ?

I would also find it beneficial if the errata list was grouped by errata list update date. It will then mean identifying changes since the last update would be easier

Best regards,
