Java The Complete Reference (English) 8th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 689

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.

A perfect book to learn java from roots.

I love this book. It covers almost all topics of java except JDBC that's why giving four stars.
But when it comes to simplicity of contents its that simple, that if one not learned about programming before he/she also can understand it, of course with some extra effort.
At last if you are he…

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.

One of the best books on Java.

Whether it's core or advanced Java you're interested in this is the book to buy. The language is simple, user-friendly and very easy to grasp. You will find this book very helpful if you already have hands-on knowledge of the OOPS concept of programming. If your looking to delve into the world of java, this is the book I'd recommend you to start with.

And as for the delivery, FK was lightning fast. Item got delivered in 24hours which I did not expect. Great packing and you get that new book feel when you buy this.

Overall a pleasurable experience.

Good

This book is good but too much in detail. Recommended only if you want to make a career in java. Else go in for books by balagurswami and tushar sambare. Those books are much simpler to understand. The level of COMPLETE REFERENCE is very high but if you are really interested in knowing everything about swings and stuff, it is the best buy

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
