Reviews of : Java Precisely by Peter Sestoft PDF Book
Inside this Book – After paying little attention to Java for about 10 years, I twigged that it might be prudent to catch up on what’s been going on in this language. The ideal audience for this book is a programmer with experience in at least two languages–preferably one of them C-like, one of them designed with object-orientation in mind, and if those are both the same language (e.g., C++, Objective-C, or C#), then the second language should be just about anything else, so that one’s mind is accustomed to thinking about programming problems abstractly, and not in the concrete syntax of a particular language.
Inside this book –Java Precisely PDF Book by Peter Sestoft – I am such a member of its audience, and since I desired to know quickly what’s been going on in Java lately (i.e., the large additions to the language in Java “5.0”, formerly known as 1.5), Sestoft’s approach was nearly perfect. Brief books on modern programming languages fill a crucial niche in the literature; witness the fact that the bibles for each of C++ (Stroustrup), C# 3.0 (Hejlsberg, Torgersen, Wiltamuth, Golde), and Java (Arnold, Gosling, Holmes) each weigh in at a thousand pages to a first approximation. Sestoft’s approach, from which he deviates on a few occasions when the material or space considerations seem to demand it, is to present language features on the left-hand pages and corresponding examples on the right. This technique mostly seems to work. To make the most of the small page budget I presume he set for himself, much material is re-used. That is, to understand the classes in example 96, you will have to refer back to their definitions in example 27. There are some forward references between examples, but most are backward, thankfully.
