A strange mixture of a book. Despite claiming on the cover that it "Fully Covers JDK 1.1 and
1.2" it was, in fact one of the first books to be rushed into print when Java 2 was announced,
and thus lacks the depth and detail of many others. It reads as if the authors have just picked
a few interesting topics and written a chapter about each. Many of the chapters are only of marginal
or historical interest (Network Computers, JavaOS and JavaStation, for example), some have been superseded
(the servlets chapter covers servlets 1.0, JWS 1.0 and HotJava), but others are still relevant (distributed
development, RMI, networking, JDBC, IO, beans etc.) but even these are not covered in much depth.
This book might be worth while if you find it in a discount bin, but for actual use you'd be far better
off with a few books each of which covers one of the useful topics in more depth. (Frank Carver - Sherriff,
Dec 2000)
