Inside, Herb and James apply Java to a wide variety of high-powered applications, each demonstrating different features and techniques. Examples range from language interpreters, Web crawlers, and e-mail subsystems to expression parsers, statistical tools, and financial applets. You'll even see how to apply Java to Artificial Intelligence (AI)! Each application can be used as-is, or as a starting point for your own development. From networking to parsing to AI and beyond, this book contains some of the most exciting Java code found anywhere.

Format: Paperback
The book is written well and I like its approach of teaching Java by building large applications.
Sadly the publisher must have specified a minimum number of pages needed to justify the intended cost of the book. A large amount of this book consists of the entire code for each application, despite this being available to download from their website. It is a shame they didn't just focus on the poignant aspects of the code and cover more ideas with pages that would have freed up. However, the applications are very useful and interesting, with good extension exercises.
For a book that appeared to promise much, I feel disappointed with this purchase.
