Hello,
I came across the Cattle Drive project and I think it's a good experience. Also allows me to support the forum and for me it is mainly a way of thanking all those who have helped me in the studio to take the certification.
I come to the point. I have a question about the study material for solving the assignments. The book mentioned "just java 2" was released in 2004 ... it is still a valid text to use, or there are more recent?
Thank you for your attention

HeadFirst Java is a pretty good book for "learning Java." There's a bunch of beginner books out there, but that's generally the go-to around here.

"Clean Code" is a good book about writing clean, readable, code.

Those two should get you through the first (and probably second) sections.

Thanks for your interest and apologize for the delay in reply.
I was not very thorough, I have a couple of books on the basics of java that can cover the first 2 sections and I was wondering if there was a text that covers all the topics in the Cattle Drive program (along with others arguments).
Thank for your attention.

The last two sections of the Cattle Drive would be covered by a book like "Head First Servelets" (2nd edition) or "Murachs Java Servlets" (2nd edition). I have both books and was very glad they were available to me when working through the servlet assignments. Both books have been reviewed on the ranch here Servlets and JSP book reveiws

Thank you Margaret, I didn't know those books, you've been very helpful to me!
