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.

Correct. I've added it to the errata and credited you. Thanks for reporting this!

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.
