For intermediate-to-advanced-level undergraduate courses in Java programming.
Designed specifically for students with development experience, the best selling Core Java offers real-world guidance for using Java to solve even the most challenging programming problems. This Fifth Edition has been thoroughly updated for Sun's JDK 2 Version 1.3 and 1.4, and adds significant coverage in many of today's most important areas of Java programming -- notably XML, servlets, security, and native methods.

Picking up where the authors' first volume on Java left off, Core Java 2, Volume 2 covers the more advanced features of the Java 2 platform that can add polish and power to your Java programs. The authors' accessible--yet thorough--coverage of essential Java APIs help make this book an attractive choice for any working Java developer.
Several chapters here are especially useful for getting control of new and important Java 2 features. Sections on the new Java 2 collection classes and using advanced Swing classes (like tables and trees) are particularly good. (While many other books just list Swing APIs, this volume provides short examples and effective commentary, which will let you master these complex Swing controls.) When it comes to Java2D graphics, the authors do a nice job of comparing the old AWT to the new Java2D, including drawing basic shapes and doing text output. (These operations are surprisingly tricky in this new API). A section on the new JDBC 2 standard shows off new features like ResultSets and scrollable cursors to good effect.
More advanced topics include multithreading, internationalization, and security. Throughout, this text introduces important concepts illustrated with comprehensible examples. The APIs for individual classes are listed too, making it possible to use this book as a reference, but it is the tutorial sections that stand out here. (The authors also aren't afraid to point out where Java 2 is lacking--for example, in its printing support.)
Readers of the first volume will naturally want the second volume of Core Java 2 too. It's also a great choice for any Java developer with JDK 1.1 experience who wants a tour of new Java 2 features that are essential for serious corporate development. --Richard Dragan
Topics covered: Java 2 advanced APIs, multithreading and synchronization, Java 2 collections, networking, databases and JDBC 2 (cursors and result sets), RMI and remote objects, Swing user interface classes, printing, tables and trees, JavaBeans, security and deployment, internationalization issues, JNI and native methods.From the Back Cover:
The #1 advanced guide for serious programmers-fully updated for JDK 1.3 release and JDK 1.4 release.
An indispensable companion to the best-selling Core Java 2, Vol. I--Fundamentals (0-13-089468-0), Core Java 2, Volume II: Advanced Features is now available in a revised and expanded fifth edition. It delivers the same real-world guidance you need to solve even the most challenging programming problems and offers an all-new chapter on XML and Java, plus thoroughly revamped coverage of many advanced features—from collections to native methods, security to Swing.
Cay Horstmann identifies the problems experienced Java platform developers encounter most often, and delivers insightful, expert-level guidance for addressing them-together with even more of the robust, sample code that have made Core Java an international bestseller for five straight years. You'll gain new insights into networking, remote objects, JDBC API, internationalization, and a whole lot more.
For experienced programmers, Core Java 2, Volume 2: Advanced Features provides the answers that they need to take full advantage of the power of Java technology and to get the job done as efficiently as possible.
