RE: Java books xwb (Programmer) 16 Jun 13 11:02 I found Thinking in Java quite good. RE: Java books djslavens (Programmer) 25 Sep 13 21:14 Hi there! I am new to the Tek-Tips Java forum, and I was wondering if there was a forum specifically dedicated to promotions of books, ebooks, and articles on Java Programming. If you could please send me a link to get me pointed in the right direction or just post a reply for me saying that there is no such section on this forum, in either case, I would be very grateful. Thanks so much for your time! -Doug RE: Java books xwb (Programmer) 26 Sep 13 11:40 Don't know of any such section. Your best friend is probably google. Having said that, be warned that there are a lot of crap books out there. Have a look at the example programs. If one of them is about a dialog and uses a switch statement to decide which button has been pressed, ignore that book - the author doesn't have a clue about OOP and why we have inheritence and overriding. He has probably copied it from somewhere else, probably one of the first Java example programs that came out. About 90% of Java books have this example. The author may be a well known professor of Computer Science at a well known university and probably has loads of accolades but he's not giving the right message by copying some crap example that everyone else has copied. It is not who wrote the book - it is the content. The wrong content will teach you the wrong habits.
