It's because of the approach using in Cookbook series... The series seems similar to the style of Recipes series from Manning Publishing...

The apparent difference from other Java books is that the topics are in Problem-Solution pairs, which make the readers easier to find out the problem area they are facing in the TOC... Then go directly to the pages that contain the same problems as theirs...

The approach simply works for the intermediate developers... I've just shot some questions whether the book is good for beginners and advance level as well or not in this thread. I hope Mr.Ian might see that thread and reply to us...

There's a sample chapter on Data Structuring with Generics, foreach, and Enumerations (JDK 1.5).

The following is extracted from the book official home page, FYI... Hope it helps you to get to know roughly about the book...
This comprehensive collection of problems, solutions, and practical examples will satisfy Java developers at all levels of expertise. Whether you're new to Java programming and need something to bridge the gap between theory-laden reference manuals and real-world programs or you're a seasoned Java programmer looking for a new perspective or a different problem-solving context, this book will help you make the most of your Java knowledge.
.......
Java Cookbook, 2nd Edition includes code segments covering many specialized APIs--like those for working with Struts, Ant and other new popular Open Source tools. It also includes expanded Mac OS X Panther coverage and serves as a great launching point for Java developers who want to get started in areas outside of their specialization.

The cookbook is not dedicated to any particular area of java as such,but covers the entire java language.If you are looking for anything specific, then try something else.The cookbook is for someone who's trying to use the Java language.The first Ed covers JDBC,JSP,Servlets but not to that extent as a full fleged book would cover.It just shows solutions to common problems that you might face.

Yes, Pradeep, it's in chapter-22, section 22.3...
23.3 Beyond JavaDoc: Annotations/Metadata (JDK 1.5) and XDoclet

Just my 2 cents...

Its a standard to be followed during your development, so that your software can handle multiple languages.

i18n - 'i' followed by 18 letters (nternationalizatio) and ends with 'n'
