This week's book giveaway is in the Cloud/Virtualization forum. We're giving away four copies of Learning OpenStack Networking: Build a solid foundation in virtual networking technologies for OpenStack-based clouds and have James Denton on-line! See this thread for details.
Two books I can think of: Jini in a Nutshell -- really a reference, but the examples are small and simple. I would buy anything written by Oaks and Wong on sight -- they're very, very good at breaking things down for easy digestion. Jini by Example -- This is Keith Edwards' follow-on to Core Jini, which from all accounts was a bit of a rush job.
