1.0 out of 5 stars I do not like the book due to problems in Chapter 8 3 Mar 1998
By D. Noel - Published on
I bought this book in the hope that I could build a few simple applets and get started building programs in Jbuilder. Chapter 8 caught my eye in the bookstore after reading favorable reviews here. Several frustrating hours later, I have yet to get a functioning jbuilder application working at my ISP. I have noticed some serious omissions in this book which suggests it was not written or edited with the latest version of Jbuilder. Chapter 8 fails to mention where I am likely to find the jbuilder class files which must be deployed on the web to successfully run a java applet. ( I learned about the class file location from Borland's FAQ page ) It should have been covered in Chapter 8. While discussing the CODEBASE HTML code, the book does not discuss the command CODEBASE = "." which is the HTML generated by the the most basic applet wizard. When I deploy my applet to my public html account and attempt to run the applet with Netscape's latest browser I get the message "Applet1 can't start class hello.Applet1 not found." Some key information is missing from Chapter 8. Thus, this book has failed me in attempting to construct the most simple application. I think it belongs among all those here today gone tomorrow books that were written with Beta software and never tested or edited by serious technical people. Rushed to the market the book quickly looses relevance.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit lacking in depth & Real examples 5 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on
I like the book overall, but it seems to be very long simply so that it can be a big book, and get that "Bookshelf Cred", simply to sell more books. The pages themselves are printed on very thick paper, which makes the book even bigger than neccessary. It also lacks much info on Java itself, and a Java intro/reference is also needed. The example programs are mainly toy code -- I would like to see a project being developed over the period of the book, to give experience in the whole RAD developement process... All in all, a decent introductory text, but rather cynically overmarketed, as are most Teach Yourself ... in 21 Days books -- I guess you'd expect that from the title. I recommend you buy a more in-depth, more thoroughly written and edited book that wasn't rushed to market, and contains some real meaty examples...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Java programming. 14 Oct 1997
By A Customer - Published on
The book is clear, concise, well organized and very helpfull for starting your Java programming experience. It is conceived as a guide to the JBuilder Development Environment with all its goodies. But it goes far beyond into the escence of Java, without unnecessary complications and a balanced feeling of what is needed to begin creating Java applets and applications. Theoretical issues on Object Oriented Programming are treated with a natural approach and no misleading oversimplifications. Explanations are not mere descriptions, they are relevant and alert the reader on possible mistakes and how to avoid them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The JBuilder trial version is no longer valid 19 Feb 1998
By A Customer - Published on
This book does not contain a working version of JBuilder. I chose this book because of the 90 day Trial Version of JBuilder included. The first time I tried to run JBuilder after installing it I got a message that the installation had expired. I called the publisher and was informed that the software provided by Borland shut down in October of 1997. The book itself is good, but you absolutley need JBuilder to learn from it.
