Hi authors,

I had a few questions, regarding the book..

1. Does the book assume you know Java well enough? Or does it teach Java too?
2. Does the book assume that the reader has done mobile development previously?
3. What is the format of the book? Does it assignments and exercises like a text book, or is it more of a "hands-on" format book?
4. Does it use eclipse to teach, or it is independent of IDE?

Thanks

We assume that you have a working knowledge of Java, there is not a Java review in the book.
While mobile development experience would of course be helpful, it is not required.
This is more of a hands-on/try it yourself book. All of the code is available for download.
The book is really geared towards using Eclipse, though some of the more important command line tools are introduced.
