Hello Herb Schildt,

Its nice to see you in this forum.

I have studied few books on Java, like Head First Java, Java programming by Balaguruswamy.

What is so special about the book 'Java programming Cookbook' compared to other books. Does it help for the people who would like to pursue the SCJP exam?

Thanks for your answers in advance

Regards
Parash

Hi,

You can read an overview of the book here - http://www.mhprofessional.com/product.php?isbn=0072263156

Basically, it seems that the book is like a "quick-n-dirty" fix-it-asap guide ..

IMHO, it is definitely not suited towards SCJP, for SCJP consider buying the K&B book.

HTH

I think this book is showing us the very practical programming task. Am I correct?

Did anywhere in your book, the real practical way using the Interface and Abstract class detail? With my experience I know that none of the new developers are clear about the difference.

As I mentioned in my reply to a previous post, my cookbook uses a "hands-on" approach that shows how to accomplish a number of common Java programming tasks. The recipes span all skill levels. For example, there are recipes that show how to read from a file, which is fairly easy. But, many of the recipes are significantly more advanced. For example, there are recipes that demonstrate the use of regular expressions, show how to create a ZIP file, or create a real-time thread state monitor.

An example recipe can be found on my web site. Just click on the book's title on the home page. In the description for the book, you will find a link to a sample recipe. It will give you an idea of the format that I used.
