      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.


      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

      'Out of Stock'

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Book for beginners/Reference!

    I already read half of this book.

    Its a must purchase book for the beginners. Thou, it's a reference book for sure. If you are looking for a start in java then you can go for this book.

    Complete Reference

    It is truly Complete Reference as name implies. Good coverage of all topics. Only one thing I want to mention is this is black and white book can irritate you after some time.

    If you are a beginner ,you want to know J2SE in depth, this is it, the best book to read. But this book is for mainly those who are looking to learn J2SE in depth & detail theory based knowledge. It's kind of book which will help you through the run always.
    And description upon every topic and writing is really good for understanding.
    it'll strongly recommend you to go for the book. its better to buy Java2, 5th edition than Core java 5th edition, by Herb Schildt.

    Great deal @ Rs.199

    Amazing deal @ Rs. 199
    Got this for Rs.199. And when I received it, i checked for authenticity, its a genuine publication, not pirated version. Even the genuine certificate is there on the first page. Just await till you get a great price quote on this (watch the price for some time) and when you feel the price is low enough for you to buy, grab the deal.
