Java The Complete Reference 8th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.608

Java: The Complete Reference provides a comprehensive coverage of the Java programming language for beginners and professionals in the subject.

Summary Of The Book

Java is a widely used language in the computer industry. Its importance and influence is strongly felt as it’s still the first and best choice when it comes to writing programs for developing web-based applications. It’s used not only across PCs and laptops, but also in smartphones. Android programming, for instance, uses Java.

This edition of Java: The Complete Reference comes about as a result of the language’s dynamic nature. Java regularly undergoes change and upgradation, primarily for the purpose of keeping up with the new and ever-changing demands of the computing world. The release of this new edition reflects this dynamism.

The book has a large intended audience, catering to the needs of both the inexperienced and professional programmers. The fundamental aspects of Java are covered in sufficient detail so that the beginner doesn’t get lost in the subject matter. And at the same time, the professional is provided with a coverage of the more advanced features of Java.

Java: The Complete Reference is a handy manual that contains the fundamental programming principles, keywords, and syntax generally used when writing programs based on Java. It consists of four parts, and in each part a different area of the subject is emphasized. There are thirty four chapters in all, some of the chapters being An Overview of Java, The History and Evolution of Java, Introducing Classes, Data Types, Variables, and Arrays, String Handling, Networking, Exploring NIO, Introducing the AWT: Working with Windows, Graphics, and Text, Java Beans, Servlets, and Financial Applets and Servlets.

Good book for beginners

Pros:
Short and simple examples
Extensive coverage of all topics including JDK7
Easy to understand language

Cons:
Too much coverage of AWT and less of Swing
Great for a beginners book, but for professional understanding, need something like Horstmann's Core Java. Although a beginner cannot directly understand Horstmann's Core Java

This Book is awesome

If you are a novice programmer or a pro..this book will entertain your every need, certainly IT IS A COMPLETE REFERENCE.

Java is best learned when you have pre knowledge of C/C++ and I would always recommend anyone to learn C/C++ first before diving into Java, and that's what this book keeps in mind. It mostly compares topics to C/C++ concepts to better learning and make your learning speed faster than ever.
Everything is well organised and written in professional but easy language with no irrelevant or childish examples as most other books do.

Speciality of the book---
Everytime I go thru some topic, I wonder "what if I do 'this' thing??", and the next moment I find that exact point in the next topic.

Also this book is from OraclePress which certifies it's accuracy.
Fully updated latest JDK 7.

Super fast delivery ! Good quality !

I had ordered this book the previous day and I got the book the next day even though there was no 'in a day delivery ' guarantee ! Book quality is ok ok since it is a Indian addition and not a Flipkart's fault ;) Got awesome offer. ( price was 695 and got it for 345 ! (for 3 copies=1037!)
No wonder in future flipkart's delivery will competate with a pizza delivery !
Value for money. !
About the book:
Very good book for those people who are familiar with c++ and want to learn java . Helpful to all computer engineers since most of the technical universities will have this book as a TEXTBOOK for the course.Not much space is provided for making notes and markings .But the shades at the end of the page will surely help to find the content easily. Simple language . Not so crowded with example ( examples are perfectly given where exactly is needed )

can only reduce half a star for page quality, so that makes 5 stars rounded off ;)

Java: The Complete Reference by Herbert Schildt

The book was purchased based on the quality of instruction in some his other books like C: The Complete Reference, for instance. The author has a very sound pedagogical and practical approach to the teaching of programming. The attraction of the present book is that he excels himself in presenting the power of this versatile language to a developer. Though the present book is aimed at the beginning and the Intermediate programmer, it is certain that one could develop the necessary expertise to graduate into a fine one if the learning is done through this. Before purchsing this book I had read the earlier reviews, which bring out shortage of emphasis on Swing, But I am sure that could be managed.
