Hi K -

Let's see what's new:

- a little about boxing
- more about date formatting
- a pretty long primer on generics
- a lot of new stuff on collections, like comparator and comparable
- an intro to enums
- the enhanced "for"

If you've already got the 1st edition and you're short on cash, I'd recommend going to the bookstore and browsing thru the new collections / generics chapter, and maybe a quick glance at the appendix!

Bert,

As suggested in another thread, will Kathy and you consider to write another HF book for complete and advanced Tiger features? Or a book that covers those major areas in detail?

Nick,
For the complete details, there already is THE COMPLETE REFERENCE by Herb out there, where we can find so many detailed topics about the J2SE 5.0...
Though that is not in HF format...

Bert, could you give a small opinion on that book? Thanks a lot...

The book is quite good for preparing SCJP Tiger, however, I think the book is "completed", but not "advanced" enough.
