Title: Java In A Nutshell, 5th Edition

good sign of Java's vitality

Recently, Sun gave us a significant upgrade to Java - the release of Java 5. A slew of the inevitable bug fixes. But also key new features, as explained here by Flanagan in the 5th edition of his long running reference.

Some new abilities lead to notational simplification, like autoboxing. So if k is an Integer, you can now say "k=5" instead of the clumsier "k=new Integer(5)". With a similar inverse process if q is an int, of being able to write "q=k" rather than "q=k.intValue()". Though of course the older forms are still valid, for backward compatibility.

Hey, varargs are now allowed! Much to the pleasure of some of you who came from C programming and used this nice feature. Ever since Java came out, there has been a continual, albeit quiet, push for varargs. Finally!

By now, experienced Java programmers may be familiar with earlier versions of the book. There may be mild astonishment at the sheer heft of this edition. Thanks to its popularity, Java has bulked up in the number and scope of its classes. The book is a reassuring sign of Java's vitality.

Title: Secrets and Lies : Digital Security in a Networked World
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Bruce Schneier
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
goes past the technology

Bruce has rightfully earned his reputation by explaining the technology of security. In this book he goes past that by explaining that security is a system, a process, and does it in his typical style that makes it completely understandable and actually a fun read. If you're responsible for security matters, you may not like seeing various 'social engineering' hacks exposed, but it's information that you and everyone using a computer these days needs to be aware of. Once again, Bruce brings a straightforward style to bear and makes sometimes difficult subject matter clear to the reader.
