Hi,

Could anyone recommend a good book for learning about all of the new
language features in the Java 1.5/5.0/Tiger release ? I recently enjoyed
the McLaughlin and Flanagan's "Java 1.5 Tiger - A Developer's Notebook" from
O'Reilly but now am looking around for something that covers things in
more depth.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance,
George

You might consider to read:
1. The complete reference for Java2, 6th edition
2. Core Java Volume I and II, 7th edition

I used these books to prepare for my SCJP Tiger beta exam, I believe they are quite useful for you to learn the new Tiger features.
