It includes new material for Java 17, streamlines existing material that used to be split across two books into one book, and has been tailored for the Java 17 exam.  Hope that helps!

Hi. I'm thinking to pass Java 11 exam, but now with Java 17 exam I don't know whether study for 11 or choose 17.  I'm a computer science student and I have some experience with Java. I would like to gain a certificate in order to improve my knowledge about java language and maybe find my first job.  Any
advice will be very appreciated

Rafal,
I think you should study for the exam your study guide is for. If you haven't bought one yet, buy 17. But if you already have the Java 11 study guide, take 11.

Jeanne and scott,
           What are the winners getting a ebook or a hard copy
Because a hard copy is worth carrying and reading

Hope to win a copy of print version of this book.

Paper books are nice, but it is for the publishers to decide which format the prize is in. Remember it is more awkward to send paper books by post to some places than eBooks.

Deepak,
We (CodeRanch) ask the winners to say what format they prefer. No guarantees the publishers will honor it. But most publishers send it electronically if the winner wants an ebook. After all, less expensive for them!

THat's up to Tim as the person running this week's promo. It's usually Friday or Saturday though (and on occasion Sunday) . i think it is safe to rule out Friday at this point .

The promotion closes at midnight, Ranch Time, on Friday night and I usually aim for 10am Saturday in my timezone, currently 3am Ranch Time, to pick the winners and do all the other administrative jobs relating to it.

But we're all volunteers and sometimes we have other more important things to do and the winners are not picked until later. And that's absolutely ok with us too.

At latest. When I run a promo, I often draw winners between 7 and 9pm Ranch time on that Friday.

Hi,
I just started to study from your book. In Chapter 1 "Running a Program in One Line" section you say "By contrast, you cannot use this new feature for a single-file program with two classes on it". But did I misunderstand? I tried and it worked with two classes in one file. I didn't give "javac Zoo.java" command. Here is my code:



Command:
-> java Zoo.java myTestArg

Result:
-> myTestArg


Edit:
This was reported as mistake at https://www.selikoff.net/ocp11-1/

Turan,
Yeah. I had misunderstood this feature when the book came out.
