Book's good but is marred by missing essentials - JDBC,etc, 18 April 2002
This 4th edition is an okay book, right?
But it is missing some key essentials like JDBC, servelets, and JSP.
Also, wouldn't it have been a great idea to include a reference of the API classes/methods at the back or on the accompanying CDROM?
Well, in all, I must say this is the best introductory java 2 programming textbook when compared to the others.
