A Dream come true


I've just finished all the chapters in this book except the final case study . . . AND :) it is one of the finest books that I have seen for beginners in ASP/ADO topic. It is very detailed and yet precise. Highly recommended. I am now ready for the Professional ASP book.

Reference material, ok; but a tutor it's not -


I picked up this book about the beginning of my linux programming experience. It was all pretty, and the suggested material inside also led me further down learning lane. But, the book itself was not very helpful to me. I had no idea where to start, and the only tutorial in chap. 2 was ok, but had no use to anyone who wants more than "hello world". It wouldn't work without forcing insmod, then the kernel complained. Learning the Microsoft WDM was easier than this book made things... B-sides, we can all do the same things in C. All in All, i was frustrated with this book.
It's free at [web address] <under the GNU Free Documentation License> if anyone felt like an online reference to linux drivers.
Bottom Line: As others stated above; not for the beginning linux driver writer. I await the fruits of: "Writing Linux Device Drivers; Takanari Hayama" Due in mid-December. Hold out for it, maybe that'll b more in depth. I'll tell u either way -

Misapprehensions and misinformation. Avoid.


I love this book. Absolutely love it. One of the great things here is the tie in of network programming with java's IO classes. Networking in Java is IO, and this book explains it upfront.
The overviews of IO and Threading in the first couple of chapters can really solidify these topics if you are sketchy on them. The rest of the book is dedicated to going over the .net classes & explaining each one, providing in depth/useful examples for each.
The appendix of the book give a good enough overview of RMI & JavaMail, more than enough to get you going using either package.
While this is not a book for total beginners, if you need to learn the .net package, or want to take your Java skills to the network, buy this book!
