Hello Everyone. Could anyone tell me if the book Objective-C Fundamentals covers the following topics:
1. Threading and Performance of iPhone Apps
2. SDK 3.0 features like MapKit, Video and Photo handling
3. Systems integration
4. Integration with Enterprise back ends like Oracle/SAP, etc.

BTW, hope the authors have covered a comparative analysis of the language against C,C++, Perl and Java - so that readers can easily see the abstract structural and syntactic differences.

Hi Raja,

I have only written parts of the book, so some of the other authors might be more suitable to answer this question, but I'll try:

1. Performance is considered throughout the book and there's a whole chapter about concurrency with GCD.
2. No, to my knowledge those topics are not covered. The book focuses more on the low-level language stuff, plus _some_ frameworks like Core Data for data persistence.
3. I'm not sure what you mean.
4. Nope.

- Johannes

Thank you for your reply. W.r.t. point 3, I meant System's Integration of iPhone Apps with other systems, packaing and deploying of the app on a device. That is to say apart from the Language basics and frameworks would it help deploy say an application that was written in Objective-C to a device and show how to integrate with a service? I think I got the answer from your reply, which is "No" this book focuses on the language aspects only!

BTW, a quick update, I went through a few sample pages, I think it is going to be a great read for me, to catchup with the language as I am new to Objective-C.
