The Java(tm) Tutorial Continued provides accurate, up-to-date coverage of features added to the original core Java platform. Written by the experts, The Java Tutorial Continued employs a hands-on, self-paced, example-driven approach. This book concentrates on JDK 1.2 APIs but also contains the information you need to use the JDK 1.1 versions of the APIs.

The tutorial books, including this book and The Java Tutorial, are the definitive programmers' guides to the core JDK. This book covers a broad spectrum of JDK features, including:

  • The Java Collections Framework
  • Internationalization
  • 2D Graphics and Sound
  • JavaBeans(tm)
  • IDL (Interface Definition Language), which adds CORBA capabilities to the Java platform
  • Database connectivity through the JDBC(tm)
  • RMI (Remote Method Invocation)
  • Security
  • JNI (Java Native Interface)
  • Reflection
  • Other topics such as JAR, the Standard Extension Mechanism, and Servlets

The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the material from both The Java Tutorial and The Java Tutorial Continued in HTML, including the source code for all of the examples. The CD-ROM also has much more, including the JDK and everything you need to start programming with JDK 1.2.

You will come away from this tutorial with an excellent conceptual understanding of the JDK, along with the practical know-how to put the Java platform to work for you.
