The Ultimate Java Technology Quick Reference

"I love this book. Its dense condensation of the details a developer needs makes it the one book I pull out over and over again."
--James Gosling, Fellow and Vice President, Sun Microsystems, Inc., and inventor of the Java™ programming language
"This reminds me of the catalogs of integrated circuits that we use to build hardware systems, and shows how far and fast Java™ technology has come in having a library of incredibly useful software components. An indispensable desk reference!"
--Bill Joy, cofounder, Sun Microsystems, Inc. Quoted from his keynote at JavaOne
"I think this book is, quite simply, a stroke of genius. I've been lamenting the stack of books on Java™ technology I've had to pore over when all I needed was a detail about some method or package. The Almanac is the one-stop shop I was unconsciously waiting for."
--John Vlissides, IBM TJ Watson, and coauthor of the best-selling book, Design Patterns
