by John Cowell




Java is a new and exciting object-oriented programming language which is set to transform the world wide web. Java allows users to write applications which can be accessed across different platforms and provides an effective means of building small but powerful programs that enable a huge range of new applications - such as animation, live updating, two-way interactions etc. - to be quickly and easily implemented. As with all the 'Essential Series' books Essential Java Fast provides a highly readable and accessible introduction to the Java programming language allowing the reader to get up and running fast when developing their own programs. Software developers producing software for the Internet, those writing substantial commercial applications in a Windows environment, as well as individuals wanting to produce single versions of an application to run on any platform, should read this book from cover to cover.

I wanted a cheapish book on Java: this was cheapish, published by a reputable publisher Springer Verlag and the author was from the UK.
I'm sorry I bought it. It's full of strange mistakes: the statement c += d is said to mean c = c + Delphi (I don't know where it came from but I suspect a Global Search and Replace was responsible).
Some of the code cannot possibly compile (missing, extra ;s), some is very confusing, code to produce a window titled "Java Window" has a picture of a window titled "my Window" (the name of the variable that the window is assigned to) and so on.
I assume that I have the first edition. I'd wait for the second at least.
Incidentally the book says it was prepared from camera-ready copy supplied by the author!

This book is great when you need to learn Java in a hurry. There's plenty of other books out there that come in over four hundred pages - but this book is straight forward and concise

The best thing this book has going for it is that it isn't too long. Not bad for a quick tour of the language, but it was riddled with errors in the code and poor editing of the text. The author was also unable to resist pointing out bugs in the JDK and Netscape which have probably been fixed long ago. The author also failed to mention the version of the JDK described.
