Hi everyone,

I finished reading of the book and here are some more errors that I discovered :

Page 139 : In table 3.6, should be

Page 242 :

Leap years are years that are a multiple of 4 or 400 but not other multiples of 100

should be

Leap years are years that are a multiple of 400 or 4 but not other multiples of 100

( multiple of 400 or (multiple of 4 and not multiple of 100)

Page 353 : In table 7.8,

Class Name

should be

Method Name



Page 476 :

The first example deletes the features.txt file in the vulture directory

should be

The first example deletes the feathers.txt file in the vulture directory



Page 544 : #18: the correct answer is : E (not A) because a Statement is not scrollable, the first call to absolute(0) throws a SQLException

Best regards,
Salim

Salim,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

Agreed and added to the errata for the comments for page 139, 353 and 476. For page 544, you are correct. This was already in the errata, but listed under page 572 which is the page on which the answer appears. Have a cow for your attention to detail.

For 242, this is either an English thing or I'm missing your point.

  • 2000 - is a leap year because a multiple of 400
  • 1900 - is not a leap year because not a multiple of 400, but another multiple of 100
