[MD1] New "Java in a Nutshell"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 30, 1997

NEW EDITION OF O'REILLY'S "JAVA IN A NUTSHELL" COVERS JAVA 1.1

SEBASTOPOL, CA--O'Reilly & Associates has published a new edition of their
bestselling "Java in a Nutshell," the popular quick-reference guide for
Java programmers that sold over 160,000 copies in its original edition.
The second edition has been updated to cover all of the new features in
Java 1.1. It contains an introduction to key Java concepts, descriptions of
all of the classes in the core Java 1.1 API, and a detailed description of
the syntax of the Java language. It also includes an advanced introduction
to Java for C and C++ programmers who want to quickly get up speed with
Java. With an alphabetic listing of commands, a clean layout featuring
easy-to-browse entries, and a lay-flat binding, this book is designed to be
used on the fly.

The new Java 1.1 material in "Java in a Nutshell," 2nd Edition includes:

- A detailed overview of all of the new features in Java 1.1, both on a
package-by-package basis and in terms of overall functionality.
- A comprehensive tutorial on "inner classes" that explains how to use
all of the new types of inner classes: static member classes, member
classes, local classes, and anonymous classes.
- Practical, real-world example programs that demonstrate the new
features in Java 1.1, including object serialization, the new AWT
event handling model, internationalization, and a sample Java Bean.
- A complete quick reference for all of the classes, methods, and
variables in the core Java 1.1 API. The quick-reference pages include
indicators that make it easy to find the new 1.1 material.

"Java in a Nutshell" proved to be an indispensable reference for Java
programmers. With the second edition, readers will now have the latest Java
1.1 information in the succinct, user-friendly "In a Nutshell" format. And
the book has a new cover design--it sports a tiger, in keeping with
O'Reilly's "animal book" tradition.

REVIEWS FOR THE 1ST EDITION OF "JAVA IN A NUTSHELL"

"All you need for programming prestidigitation is the right kind of
spellbook. This is it: a book designed to lie right next to your keyboard,
ready to tell you the quick answers to your questions as you write your
programs. The first in a series on Java programming texts planned by
O'Reilly & Associates, Java in a Nutshell lays it all out for you: how Java
differs from C and C++, specific Java applets with annotations, a
comprehensive glossary, and an extensive quick reference. If you are a
professional programmer with serious Java needs, then Java in a Nutshell is
a must-buy book."
--Elizabeth Crowe, C|net

"David Flanagan's 'Java in a Nutshell' has quality stamped on its cover and
embedded in its acid-free paper. O'Reilly has a reputation for books with
terse, accessible writing--and this book is no exception....I'm sure this
book will meet the needs of programmers everywhere who want to get up to
speed with Java."
--Doug Nickerson, Dr. Dobb's Journal, 12/96

`"In keeping with the Nutshell series, Flanagan takes a streamlined but not
terse approach to explaining the use of Java and its
capabilities....Flanagan writes for the seasoned programmer. If you have
this background and are ready to roll up your sleeves, 'Java in a Nutshell'
should have you creating applets as fast as you can say 'Eat at Joe's'."
--David Dean, Internet World, 8/96

"This book is an indispensable reference tool. Between its covers, you'll
find a lucidly assembled compendium of the nuts-and-bolts details of Java
programming."
--Nancy Nicolaisen, Computer Shopper, 7/96

"...one of the best programming reads we've come across is David Flanagan's
'Java in a Nutshell.' It is a handy, quick reference to the Java 1.0 API,
including a number of useful cross-referenced indexes to all of Java's
classed, methods, and variables."
--Roger Smith, Software Development, 12/96
