Description
 

What if you could condense Java down to its very best features, and build better applications with this simpler version? In this book, veteran Sun Labs engineer Jim Waldo reveals which parts of Java are truly good, and why these features make Java among the best programming languages available.Every language eventually builds up crud and, after 15 years, Java has a large share. The core language has become large and complex, and the libraries associated with it have grown even more. You may not like some of the features Jim Waldo considers good, but theyll actually help you write better code.Take an in-depth tour of the Java parts that matter most: The type system -- Javas best feature, despite its oddities Exceptions -- make code reliable, easier to read and maintain Packages -- allows large-scale software development with Java Garbage collection -- saves you from explicit memory management Java virtual machine -- complex, but seldom given a second thought Javadoc -- embed documentation with your code Collections -- by far, the most useful Java library Remote Method Invocation -- move code and data within a network of Java programs Concurrency -- enables you to take advantage of multicore processors
