Hi All,
I will be teaching an "Advanced Java" programming course. Can anyone suggest a good textbook which covers the following topics:
1. Collection
2. Multithreading
3. GUI
4. Network programming
5. Server side programming (Servlet/JSP basics)
Thanks.

Deitel covers all those but most of those topics are covered in a regular intro book. Only the servlet/JSP topic would be found in a separate book.

You might try Just Java 2 by Peter van der Linden, or Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckel. Since the latter is free in electronic form, you can also easily use it as a supplement to some other book, without adding to students' cost.

The fifth edition of the Deitel book has chapters on servlets (chapter 24) and JSPs (chapter 25.) This is the version of the book for Java 1.4.

Thanks everyone. Just Java 2 by Peter van der Linden looks pretty good.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
