Jeff, welcome to JavaRanch.

Inside the book do you have examples of handling lists/arrays?
Also do you cover the subject of web services clients for android?

Thanks,

Bogdan

Hi Bogdan,

Chapter 2 of my book discusses arrays, both one-dimensional and two-dimensional.

Chapter 8 focuses on the collections framework and has lots to say about lists: the List interface, and the ArrayList, and LinkedList List-implementation classes.

In all cases, there are quite a few examples.

I don't focus on web services clients. In fact, there is very little about Android in this book because my goal is to provide thorough coverage of the Java language and foundational APIs (such as the collections framework) to prepare the reader for getting into Android (by giving the reader a solid Java foundation). However, there is a small Android example in Chapter 10 and some mention of Android in other places (a list of system properties supported by Android, for example). However, that is the extent of the book's Android coverage.

Thanks for the welcome.

Jeff
