Hi All,

I am not here with some Java question today.
I want some suggestion about the Java books. I was not very sure in which forum I should ask this question so I am posting it here.
I am looking for core Java books for experienced programmers or lets say where things are explained into little more deeper.
Please suggest if you have any.

Thanks a lot in advance.

"The Well Grounded Java Developer" from Manning. It has some chapters on JVM concepts you might not have thought of. It also covers some of the JVM languages. See the table of contents

So I would suggest Effective Java by Joshua Bloch. I am reading the 2nd edition of the book and very impressed. It covers dos, donts and best practices for core Java programming.

Definitely "Effective Java" is a must read for any experienced programmer.
And, in case if you have not yet looked at, you can look at the bunkhouse for a detailed review of books on all topics.
