Answer to number 16, where it says: "d is the String P1D and p is the String PT24H".

It should be the other way around.

No problem, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us. I had this book on pre-order and I am very excited to have it in my hands now. I'll let you know if I spot anything else as I work through it.

Good morning,

I'm using this old post because I might have found an errata in the same page.  
In the #7, the answer is A, but I think that the code doesn't compile due to toRealPath() and File.isSameFile(path1, path2).  These methods trow an IOException but it's not handled in any way.
Is this an errata or am I missing something here?

Than you!

The book is right as is. That's a code snippet so you get to assume the surrounding method signature is correct.
