The Java Tutorial Continued provides accurate, up-to-date coverage of features added to the original core Java platform. Employing a hands-on, self-paced, example-driven approach, this book concentrates on JDK 1.2 APIs but also contains the information you need to use the JDK 1.1 versions of the APIs. This book covers a broad spectrum of JDK features, including: The Java Collections Framework; Internationalization; 2D Graphics and Sound; JavaBeans ; IDL (Interface Definition Language), which adds CORBA capabilities to the Java platform; Database connectivity through the JDBC; RMI (Remote Method Invocation); Security; JNI (Java Native Interface); Reflection; and other topics such as JAR, the Standard Extension Mechanism, and Servlets. The CD-ROM contains all the material from both The Java Tutorial and The Java Tutorial Continued in HTML, including the source code for all of the examples. The CD-ROM also includes the JDK and everything you need to start programming with JDK 1.2. The extensive class and member descriptions contain details crucial for developing robust and professional applets and applications. Each description is accompanied by an example that demonstrates the class or member in a relevant context. Numerous examples facilitate learning-by-example and provide useful code for your projects. The information is presented in an easy-to-use, dictionary-like format.
