The philosophy of this text is to eliminate what the author calls "fluff"--unnecessary screen shots or extraneous listings of APIs. This means that the book is packed solid with real ideas on designing and using Java.
The book begins with a basic application, and then moves on to explaining data types and the basics of writing classes. The author's coverage of how to use inheritance and interfaces in Java is just excellent, mixing intelligent ideas on object-oriented design with the nuts and bolts of the Java programming language. Subsequent chapters on Java exceptions and threads are also noteworthy for their depth and detail.
The book gradually zeroes in on Microsoft-specific features, but only after a thorough tour of core Java, including networking, file input/output (I/O), and basic Abstract Windows Toolkit (AWT) programming. Visual J++ 6 features that are covered include J/Direct, Windows Foundation Classes (WFC), and ActiveX control programming, as well as databases, including the ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), Data Access Objects (DAO), and Remote Data Objects (RDO) specifications. -- Richard DraganFrom the Back Cover:

It shows you the power and the grace of the Java language--going as deep into the theory and use of the language as you want to. The book also shows you how to use Microsoft's powerful extensions to the Java language and the Java platform, such as ActiveX, OLE DB, COM/DCOM, WFC components, and the WFC component model.
