The book is split into 4 parts, starting with an introduction to Java 7. Anyone who has been asleep for the last year should definitely be reading this section. It presents all the major changes with examples, and is easy to follow and read.
Vital techniques then takes a deep dive into dependency injection - critical to writing testable and maintainable code. The section shows by example an introduction to the critical topic. It also introduces JSR-330 annotations, which as an early adopter of Spring I hadn't looked at in detail myself. The spin then goes into concurrency, and this chapter I finished! Having had Modern Concurrency in Practice on the bookshelf, 4 attempts at reading it and bottoming out around page 50 - I have to say this was refreshing. Modern Concurrency is a great book, but this chapter synthesises the complexity in simple and easy to understand diagrams and explanations. Class files and byte code is another section that many Java developers lack a detailed understanding of - this book adequately covers this topic.Read more ›
I take exception however with the authors clear assertion that Java is 'Object-oriented' for a number of obvious reasons. They really should have known better on this one, Object-based would be pretty more accurate.
I am a huge supporter of Martin Verburg!

- The sections on groovy, scala and clojure waste 100 pages. Much of the other stuff would be better just pulled down from various websites.Published on 24 Aug. 2013 by Jon B
