The Java(tm) Tutorial Continued provides accurate, up-to-date coverage of features added to the original core Java platform. Written by the experts, The Java Tutorial Continued employs a hands-on, self-paced, example-driven approach. This book concentrates on JDK 1. 2 APIs but also contains the information you need to use the JDK 1. 1 versions of the APIs. The tutorial books, including this book and The Java Tutorial, are the definitive programmers' guides to the core JDK. This book covers a broad spectrum of JDK features, including: The Java Collections Framework Internationalization 2D Graphics and Sound JavaBeans(tm) IDL (Interface Definition Language), which adds CORBA capabilities to the Java platform Database connectivity through the JDBC(tm) RMI (Remote Method Invocation) Security JNI (Java Native Interface) Reflection Other topics such as JAR, the Standard Extension Mechanism, and Servlets The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the material from both The Java Tutorial and The Java Tutorial Continued in HTML, including the source code for all of the examples. The CD-ROM also has much more, including the JDK and everything you need to start programming with JDK 1. 2. You will c

Review:

Based on Sun Microsystems' online tutorials, The Java Tutorial Continued: The Rest of the JDK provides an up-to-the-minute guide to essential Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.2 features. This book provides material that is absolutely necessary for Java developers who are seeking to get up to speed with the latest release of Java.

The book begins with a summary of JDK 1.2 features covered throughout the text. It then moves on to the new JDK 1.2 collection classes, which, for the first time, give Java programmers access to robust, customizable data collections.

After a section on internationalization (also newly enhanced), the authors show how to use the Java 2D API for 2-D graphics, from creating basic graphics primitives to displaying images. The authors include some material on building JavaBeans and then discuss Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) database programming, including new JDBC 2 features such as batch updates and SQL3 data types. Sections on Java Remote Method Invocation (RMI) and Java servlets show off other ways to use Java in the enterprise.

For the real-world Java programmer, there is perhaps nothing more frustrating than coping with Java's security model. Several chapters within this book help you take advantage of the new JDK 1.2 security policy and cover signing Java Archive (JAR) files to permit local file access for both applets and applications. The book closes with some useful material on the Java Native Interface for mixing Java with native C/C++ code. --Richard Dragan

From the Inside Flap:

As the title implies, this volume of The Java Tutorial starts where the first ended. The first book covers API present in the Java platform's first release.

This book covers API subsequently added to the Java platform.

This book is a collection of tutorials written by Java team members. Each author who contributed to this book is an authority in his or her area of the Java platform. Some authors are even the creators of the API they describe.

The hyperlinked origins of this book will be evident as you read it. For instance, underlined phrases throughout this book mimic online links. A link to material within this book is followed by the appropriate page number. A link to material outisde this book, such as to the JDK API documentation, is accompanied by a footnote that contains a URL. Other evidence of this book's online origin can be found on the first page of each trail/lesson, which provides the URL where the trail/lesson can be found in the online tutorial.

You might be wondering why we use the terms "trails" and "lessons." We know that people don't learn linearly. People learn by posing a problem, solving it, uncovering other problems, solving them, and learning information as the need arises. Our original vision for the online tutorial was to encourage and enable this type of thinking and learning. We envisioned a mountain of ski trails, where at any junction, a reader could choose the most interesting or appropriate path at that time. But we also needed some sort of structure and organization, so we created a two-tier hierarchy; trails at the top level and lessons within them. We also use a high level of linking to help you pick and choose where you go and when.

What You Need

This book documents the Java Development Kit TM (JDK) 1.2 release of the Java platform. To compile and run the examples in this book you need a development environment that is compatible with JDK 1.2. You can use a commercially available development environment or the JDK itself. We've included JDK 1.2 on the CD-ROM that accompanies this book.The Java Plug-in ensures that your browser uses the latest Java Runtime Environment compatible with JDK 1.2.

Finally, you need an editor that can save files in ASCII format with a .java extension. Also, the editor must allow you to specify both uppercase and lowercase letters in the filename.
