Title: Java Cookbook, 2nd Edition
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Ian F. Darwin
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Good resource


If you've progressed beyond the beginner stage of Java programming and need a comprehensive reference of programming solutions, this book is an outstanding choice. Extremely well written in a friendly, conversational style, it includes several hundred code and program examples for common tasks. The book is thoroughly indexed and cross-referenced, and you can get all the source code from the publisher's website. Each of the "recipes" clearly describes a programming task and suggests one or more solutions. The introductory chapter includes valuable suggestions on program development and debugging.
For a long time my standard Java help book had been Flanagan's "Java Examples in a Nutshell". While that is still a good reference, Java Cookbook is what I'll be using from now on.

Chapter 1 is worth it alone if you are newbie to Win32...


OK.. I'm not an expert programmer.. I taught myself some C/C++ because I want to write utilities to make my life as a Network/Server guy easier and have a solid understanding of what goes on "down deep" in my servers. I found I had a hurdle to get over in getting a HANDLE hWin32; /*handle on win32*/ (pun intended).. (const char *, int, structures I know.. what the heck is an LPCTSTR and just how do you use it? Yeah, it seems simple now that I've digested chapter 1, but I just wasn't getting it.) Most books that I have found up to this point did not bridge this gap.. or wanted me to wade through a ton of GUI stuff to "get it". I don't have that kind of time right now.. This book really filled in that gap. Now that the light bulb is on, I'm looking forward to chapters 2-16.

Title: ASP.NET Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution, C# Edition

Pretty good book on how to start from the ground up.


If you want to see how to plan, design, and build a website from the ground up then read this and use it as a reference. It could be better but these guys put a lot of work into showing you how to get results. I just didn't give it 5 stars because they get off on a few silly things but it is worth reading for beginners to intermediate.
