The Java Class Libraries: An Annotated Reference

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 1997 - Computers - 1660 pages
This example-driven, annotated reference guide to the Java class libraries from two leading Java developers is an essential resource for both beginner and experienced Java programmers.
You will find complete and detailed coverage of all the class libraries, including the Core Packages (, java net, java.util, and java.lang) as well as the Window Toolkit and Applet packages (java.awt, java.awt.image, java.awt.peer, and java.applet), including more than 600 examples and more than 20,000 lines of code. The book has been specifically designed to make it possible to find information on any class or member quickly and easily. Each class description includes a class hierarchy diagram showing its connection to related classes, a detailed overview describing its purpose and key concepts, a convenient member summary which briefly describes each member and arranges the members into related groups, an example demonstrating the class in a "real-world" context, and comprehensive descriptions and examples for each of its members.
