Advanced Java is the perfect follow on from Deital and Deital's Introduction to Java Programming. Each chapter builds on the previous, concluding with challanging projects to test this accumulated knowledge. It really does arm you with a great understanding of what Java is capable. As a student these books have given me a solid understanding of what I can do with Java. The Advanced Java is great in incorporating other technologies, and providing what is needed to develop complete systems. I plan to move on to a few of the other languages available once I have gone through this again. There is so much in this that once is not enough!!!

not much to comment on really, 94% of IT is dead, meaning 94% of MD's have been kicked out for being fake.

HASH(0x8ebd1e7c) out of 5 stars Quantity - Yes Quality - No 28 Nov. 2001
By Thomas L. McQueary - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed in this book after having looked forward to its publication. The book seems to have been hurriedly put together and shipped before it was completed.
Example 1: Page 898. The book refers to Appendix E which is supposed to be on the CD - it isn't.
Example 2: Page 898. The book says the transcations.sql file, used to set up the database required to run the example is on the CD - it isn't.
Example 3: Pages 1165. The authors attempt to show how to set up Bea WebLogic server to run an EJB example. The instructions are incomplete. The authors end the section with the statement "you are almost ready to deploy".
I could go on but I think you get the idea. I would have preferred a book that was more focused, with complete examples, and a book that was *finished* when it went to press.
Unfortunately it seems the Deitel and Deitel folks are more interested in creating many titles with many pages while letting quality slip (...).
Check out the new book by Gittleman entitled Advanced Java: Internet Applications and published by Scott/Jones. In about half the pages, Gittleman covers many of the same topics as Deitel and Deitel. I really like Gittleman's style.

HASH(0x8f372570) out of 5 stars As complete a coverage of the Java platform as one can get. 19 Dec. 2001
By Johanes de Jong - Published on
Format: Paperback
I (...)have (...) decided to publish the complete review I did for the JavaRanch.
(...)If you feel you want to comment on my review post them in our Book Review Forum at the JavaRanch.
Each chapter briefly explains the Java technology it covers and then shows you how it is used. Every listing is explained in detail. I find the explanations clear and easy to understand. I however hated having to page back and forth in the book to see the explained code in context. Separate listings book ?
Their case studies are relevant and can be used as a great resource for your own projects at home and at work. It would have been nice if Class Diagram's were added. This would have helped one to understand the solutions better.
Considering the pure volume of the example code you will forgive me that I did not install and try it all. But what I've played around with compiled and worked perfectly.
The accompanying CD is a gem. Other authors should use it as an example to see how it should be done. I was especially impressed by the installation instructions for the accompanying software; clear, precise and accurate.
Yep I have to say something about it. I love the color they use extensively in the book. It makes the reading of listings especially easy.
This book must be one of the most complete Java books available at the moment. I highly recommend it.
A note of caution, don't expect in depth coverage on each subject. There simply is no space. They however provide extensive resources for further studies.

HASH(0x8eab660c) out of 5 stars Quantity is not Quality 9 Jan. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was the required text for a graduate class in Java servlets, JSP, and J2EE.
The book attempts to cover all aspects of J2EE technology and in the process doesn't cover any aspect very well.
Topics are covered in a highly condensed, concentrated manner. Unless you already know something about the particular technology, you're not going to get a good grounding in a topic.
Most of the students in my class had problems making the examples work. (To be fair, the authors used a J2EE 1.2.1 while the class used J2EE 1.3.1.) Nevertheless, I think Deitel and company should have done more work on the examples.
The typographical layout of the text makes it hard to read. Lots of paper is used to reprint source code in a mis-mash of color. The overuse of bold text makes the reading painful. The book weights a ton.
For the topics we studied, the O'Reilly books Java Servlet Programming (Hunter & Crawford) and Enterprise Java Beans (Monson-Haefel) would have served much better and cost about the same.

Book Review:
Java How to Program, 4th ed.
Advanced Java™ 2 Platform How to Program
Deitel & Deitel
I finished three java programming courses at Santa
Monica College two of which required the Java How to
Program, 4th ed., the other was a java w/data
structures course and I used the Java How to Program,
4th ed. and the instructors lecture notes. I bought
the advanced book to learn more about java and the
net, java 2d, 3d and j2me since I am into pc and
online video games development, and data base
connections with jdbc since I know sql. Design
patterns and enterprise java case study give
industrial strength business applications.
The authors packed and packed java into these books.
The books are easy to follow, and everything works. I
found the exercises challenging but not overwelming. I
have not ran across an exercise I cannot do, although
some require in depth study of the topics covered. And
when if all comes together it's fun. The chapters
build on each other very well, and the materials moves
fast and stays interesting.
The cd's have everything I need to get started: what
to install, how to install it, how to set the
environment. The forte community edition is packed
with java building and debugging tools that make java
programming faster and easier to follow. Try the
Reformat Code tool, and check out the text coloring.
I cannot say enough about these authors and their
materials. Anybody getting into java programming will
be more than satisfied for a long time.
Thank you Deitel & Associates

HASH(0x8ebf7dd4) out of 5 stars Waste of money 20 Nov. 2003
By Vinay Doma - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was a text book for one of my advanced java classes. Unfortunately, there is very little to learn from this book. Filling the book up with pages of examples without sufficient explaination of concepts makes this book a complete waste of money. Most of the chapters were rushed, students will have a tough time grasping important concepts unless they buy some good books as well (OReilly, Addison-Wesley). I will not recommend it to anybody.
