What is so unique about "Java Programming cookbook" ? Why there is just another beginner book when we have lots of good book's out there in the market? Is this book a late comer?
"Java Cookbook by orielliy publications" is already there which gives recipes and practical examples. In my opinion it is a worth read. Also, Beginning Java by Ivor horton is the best java book I have ever read.
Is there anything unique about this book? Or is it just another java book which is not worth trying?
Before buying a book I think these questions make sense.
First, its good that you have found a Java book that you like. I am always happy when someone becomes a Java programmer!
As to what is in my book, here what I said on a previous post:
My cookbook does not teach Java, per se. Rather, it is a "hands-on" guide that shows how to accomplish many common, practical tasks in Java. Thus, it assumes a basic, working knowledge of Java.
Each recipe follows the same format and includes the following items:
. The key ingredients (classes, interfaces, and methods used by the recipe) . Step-by-step instructions that show how to craft a solution. . An in-depth discussion of the steps . A complete example that puts the recipe into action. . Options and alternatives
You can find a table of contents, along with chapter 1 (which introduces the book) at its page on the McGraw-Hill web site.
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.
Also on my web site is a new commentary that explains why it "took me so long" to write the book. As you will see, I have been wanting to write a programming cookbook since my college days!
