Which will be the best book for Java covering all the advanced features/topics and new developments (better if includes Java 7 modifications).
FYI i know java but only the regular stuffs. i want to learn about the advanced topics like executors and fork/joins ....

Java Concurrency is an excellent book, the best one I know of for understanding threading-related issues in Java. However I would note that it is only about concurrency issues, and doesn't address any other advanced or Java 7 topics. I might suggest something like The Well-Grounded Java Developer, coauthored by bartender Martijn Verburg. I've only read a few parts so far, but it seems pretty good (and I know Martijn knows his stuff), and the table of contents seems like a good fit for what you asked for. Might be worth checking out.
