I am looking for a good book on learning File I/O. I read the Sierra and Bates SCJP book and I loved it. I am looking for a book that is at this same level but that gives a good overview of File I/O from the ground up. I am starting to work on the SCJD assignment and don't know very much about I/O at all. I have the SCJD book that is recommended here but it assumes that I know a bit more about File I/O than I do. I need something to get me up to speed on 1.4.1 File I/O.
Any recommendations would be appreciated. I am going to Microcenter tonight to shop for books.

The number one source I point people to wanting to learn Java I/O is the Sun I/O Tutorial. It isn't a book, and my opinion of Sun's tutorials is hit or miss, but I think this one nails it. Helped me tremendously, as well as many other people that post around these parts.
Thinking In Java, by Bruce Eckel, if you don't have it has a nice I/O section.
Then there is the Java NIO book by Hitchens (O'Reilly press), which is nice, but it is in addition to the java.io stuff.
And of course you can always post any questions around here.

Great ideas. I've downloaded the sun tutorials and I already had thinking in java on my laptop. I'm heading off for a week on a boat in Belize -- scuba diving, eating, and thinking about java. When I get back I hope that I'll be ready to dive head first into my SCJD assignment.
I don't know how I would have gotten through this past week at work without the assistance that I have received here. I don't know how to thank you!
