Hi,

I am just wondering whether anyone has read this book:

http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/Professional-Java-for-Web-Applications.productCd-1118656466.html

I ordered it online, but there don't seem to be many reviews around - only found two "proper reviews". I am someone who studied Java as part of my CS degree over a decade ago, and since then only used it very sporadically, so I would classify myself as a beginner, and am therefore curious as to whether this book would be suitable for me or whether I was too quick in ordering it and should consider an alternative.

Thanks.

A

OK, got the books!

Will hopefully read them both cover to cover in November and then post my reviews - as I am someone who studied Java as part of a C++ and Java programming module in my CS degree over a DECADE ago, and has never used it commercially, I would say I am a beginner, so the reviews will hopefully be useful for other beginners.

I am currently on part one of the Pro Java book, and I think it's a good one. The author explained the topics very thoroughly, and the contents are not outdated.

I agree. I got sidetracked with other things, but am back onto this and should finish it before Christmas - full review to come then!
