Though this book may fail to inspire in the reader the presumed enthusiasm for Java felt by the authors, you won't go wrong with this one, and its coverage of object-oriented programming issues is particularly good.

Basically, this book does a great job covering just about all aspects of Java and is a great reference book for anyone learning about Java and Object Oriented Programming. It provides good examples as well, which a student really needs to help understand the concepts.

After a simple introductory example, the book focuses on the graphics architecture of Java 2D and its rendering pipeline. Support classes in Java 2D receive ample coverage as well, with sections outlining topics like storing points, shapes, and paths.

Part of O'Reilly's definitive set of Java documentation,Learning Java introduces the basics of Java, the object-oriented programming language for networked applications from Sun Microsystems. This book provides a broad survey of the Java 2 Standard Edition and contains everything necessary to get up to speed quickly. It covers the essentials of hot topics like Swing and JFC; describes new tools for signing applets and other Java classes; and shows how to write networked clients and servers, servlets, JavaBeans, and state-of-the-art user interfaces.Java started out as a tool for creating animated web pages, but it's proven to be much more. Java is now used for everything from sophisticated web clients to mission-critical enterprise applications. In the future, Java will become the basis for a new generation of distributed software that runs on devices ranging from cell phones to supercomputers. In the practical, hands-on approach characteristic of O'Reilly, Learning Java demonstrates why Java is now the language of choice for building the next generation of computer software.Includes a CD-ROM containing the example code and JBuilder for Windows and Solaris.Learning Java covers:

Programmers who have learned such languages such as C++ will find that learning Java is easy, and somewhat painless since both use Object Oriented Programming. But what about those who do not have such experience?
For those who have experience in O.O.Programming, this book will suit you just fine. However, for the rest of us, this book will be difficult to get through, let alone understand. You can read the book, understand the syntax, but unless you understand O.O.Programming, you will not be able to make effective use of this book.
My other complaint for this book was the lack of problems for novices to try. Many other O'Reilly books on programming will put problems at the end of every chapter (e.g. Learning Perl, Practical C Programming, etc.) but not this one. I think that would help any new Java programmer immensely.
One last complaint for this book was the first couple chapters. The authors tried to give you some code to try out (obviously to get new Java programmers excited about Java), but did so before even presenting Java concepts, so a reader will find himself frustrated from the start.
I had to give this book 3 stars because the content overall was good, but was definitely assuming too much from the reader. For people with C++ background, you will definitely enjoy this book, but if not, you will find yourself most frustrated.
I have over 6 years programming C++, yet that helped very little with my understanding Java after reading this book. The author starts off very well with some good examples, but then drops dead - nothing but code fragments and abstract text for the next 3 or 4 chapters! Argh.
This is the first O'Reily book that I disliked and found to be poorly written (and O'Reily has much of my money, too). I doubt I will invest in the rest of this series.
I bought Sams "Teach yourself Java in 21 days" and so far have found it very capable. If Niemeyer used the form of Sams' book (examples and organization), but with his knowledge, then this could be a 5-star book. Maybe.
I ordered this book thinking it was one of the most recent versions, touching on Java 5 and above. What I got was a version from mid 90's teaching Java 1.3. I'm very displeased.
A very good book for learning the basics of the Java language. The biggest problem I had was with the suggested audience; the target audience should more appropriately be for programmers coming from a C or C++ background. The authors suggest you be familiar with the basic C syntax, but the frequent references in the text to C and C++ make it more of a requirement than an option. In their defense, this is not an introductory programming book so they shouldn't be expected to try to teach the reader everything.
The book covers a wide range of topics and gives an excellent (if brief) introduction to almost all aspects of Java programming. The coverage includes not only the basic syntax but goes into some of the enterprise Java topics normally found in more advanced books. For those looking for a good introduction to the language this is an excellent choice. Individuals looking for more detailed coverage of fewer topics should look elsewhere.
One of the best things about this book for experienced programmers is the fact that it does accept that you know loops and other control structures and does not spend any more time on them other than necessary to point out differences between Java and C/C++. This is a relief from those books that beat the subject to death for 3 chapters even when their target audience is experienced programmers.
This book is an excellent introduction to the language for someone interested in finding out what Java has to offer as a programming language. This book will not teach you all of the ins and outs of the language nor does it go too in depth in its examples. It is, as the title suggests, a book to learn Java not to master it. The topics are written clearly and there are plenty of small, easily understood code samples throughout the text. The authors� style is clear and not too technical, overall it makes for an easily understood and comprehendible book.

Not up to the standards of "Learning Python" and many of the other exceptional O'Reilly titles. This book is not one to pick up and hope to learn the language. The authors concentrate heavily on idiosyncracies and skim over basic principles. In particular, the Swing chapters were a bitter disappointment - the JAPPLET example shows not the skeleton for a working JAPPLET, but how to run an applet inside a swing program. The Lister example combines JLIST and JCOMBOBOX into a garbled example. It's not easy for the novice to peel out one and convert it to a JAPPLET...
If you know JAVA and want a reference, this book may help. If you want to know what's new in JAVA2, this book may be for you. I'm waiting for the update to JAVA Examples in a Nutshell and still looking for a good introductory book.

This is a well written book which can be heartily recommended as a valuable addition to any Java programmer's bookshelf. The title is however somewhat misleading in that it is not necessarily the best choice as a first read on the topic. The discussion can at times be a bit terse and tend slightly towards abstractness. (Some books which probably better fit the bill as first read on Java would be Deitels' "Java How to Program", or Horton's "Beginning Java"). This book is an ideal compliment to a primary tutorial such as Dietel or Horton, offering valuable advice in the way of programming style, and subtleties, and serving as a summary/refresher of the concepts that have been already met but perhaps in need of revision.
