does the book contain projects to follow just like any other books on programming wherein you define a project and study java and apply it to the project? as you go along, you enhance the project. by this approach, you will be learning the basics of java and on to a more advanced one. i want to have this book and re learn java and teach it to others.

Each chapter of the book contains chapter objectives, numerous examples, illustrations, review questions (with annotated answers) and programming exercises.The website offers lecture notes, programming examples, exercises, and more.

Does the book explain the setup of a java environment in *nix environment ?
For example installation of the JDK,usage of IDEs like eclipse ?

As long as you have the JDK installed and know how to give commands at the prompt line, you should have no problem compiling and running the Java programs from the book.
An appendix in the book provides some pointers on how to use the tools in the JDK.

And one more thing ...
We do not cover IDEs such as Eclipse, as they do have a high learning threshold. We did not want the workings of the IDE to coem in the way of learning programming. When that is said, the sample code is provided as Eclipse projects. :-)
