3.0 out of 5 stars Usefull in a way..., 18 July 2001
This review is from: Microsoft Visual J++ Programmer's Guide (Paperback)
This is not a textbook that will teach you J++, rather than a supplement. It is quite usefull on the basis that it offers an explanation about all compiling errors that sometimes can get quite confusing. It also includes some technical details about tha compiler and how to optimise its use. By no means though it should be bought for the purpose of learning the language since the coverage of it is minimum.

2.0 out of 5 stars Talks the features but doesnt show you how, 17 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft Visual J++ Programmer's Guide (Paperback)
As a start up J++ developer this books lacks what I was looking for or need. This is really a outline of what it will do, ie whether to purchuse J++ or not.

1.0 out of 5 stars Want real Java? Avoid Microsoft products., 12 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft Visual J++ Programmer's Guide (Paperback)
It is to Microsoft's financial advantage to crush Java, because the language's platform independence represents a threat to their monopoly. They are using their usual tactic of "embrace, extend, and extinguish" in the case of Visual J++. This is confirmed by Java experts on forums such as news://comp.lang.java.programmer, and by Sun's recent lawsuit against Microsoft for violation of the contract by which Microsoft uses the Java trademark.
Besides that, the tool is simply inferior to real Java products such as Borland JBuilder and Symantec Cafe. It is a struggle to use it to do useful work, despite the bleatings of the MS spin machine, which has clearly been at work amongst the suits at amazon.com.
Want real Java? Avoid Microsoft and its books. Want Microsoft? Stick to Visual Basic.
