Working on the Java Tutorial, Second Edition

The latest release Java became more interesting than ever

In 2011 Wiley (Wrox) published my book “Java Programming. 24-Hour Trainer“. To be honest, I don’t like the title because it misleads people as if this book promises that the reader can learn Java within 24 hours. But creators of this series (many titles were published under this umbrella) meant to say that this book was like your personal instructor; 24 hours a day. Whatever. It’s not my call.

But earlier this year I got a call from the publisher stating that they’re happy with the book sale numbers and want me to update the book and release the second edition reflecting the latest changes in the Java Language.

I agreed because with the latest release Java became more interesting than ever. The magnitude of changes to the Java 8 language and APIs can be compared with Java 5 that was released back in 2004. It’s exciting to program in Java again.

In the second edition I’m replacing Java applets chapters with JavaFX . The Java EE part will reflect the latest Java EE edition. Of course, I’m adding the coverage of lambdas and Stream API. Re-writing and simplifying all examples and testing them in the freshly released Eclipse Luna IDE. GlassFish 4 is my server of choice for all Java EE 7 examples.

Those of you who used the first edition of my book or watched my Intro To Java video lessons may start using the fresh version of code examples, which I started publishing on Github. So far I’ve I’ve uploaded examples for lessons 1-10 and 13-17. If you haven’t worked with git, watch this video to get up to speed. I’d really appreciate your feedback on these code samples.
