Best Books for Java Complete
Hi guys, I am currently in engineering and have a very strong core java knowledge.
I want to learn java in depth including EJB and Java EE etc.
I would like to know which books should I buy as for half time of the day I do not have access to computers but I have time to read books.
I have heard that the Head First Series in Java and EJB are good.
I have also heard that Java How to Program by Deitel and Deitel are also good.
So please suggest me some books and I would like to avoid complete reference books as they are very boring in structure.
I wonder if the oracle tutorials has a download option. Lets take a look.
Yeah there's definitely some information. The overview page is here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...sp-135888.html, but I found it coming through just the SE tutorial site which brought me here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...8-1536013.html
I won't recommend a book though. Books become so out of date so quickly IMHO they are not worth the investment cost. Online is the easy part since if you know *what* you are looking for, or can describe what it is in google, you'll often pull up quite a number of results that include tutorials. The trick is knowing which tutorials are out of date, obsolescent, or insecure, which does take a bit of knowledge in a language.
I'm thinking download to an e-reader.
If that's not an option, than a book is the only way to go and I don't have any suggestions on them. The only thing I can suggest whilst looking for one is to not use any book that caters to a version of Java less than 5. Lots of new stuff in 6 and 7, but java 5 brought in the generics so that is the minimum you want to develop for (the other new stuff would be trivial to learn after).
