The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Advanced Java: Idioms, Pitfalls, Styles and Programming Tips':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
Yup, advanced. No introduction, no tutorials, no pretence. After all the "starter" books that really aren't suitable for the novice, it is nice to see a book that aims at the right level for its audience. It's also nice to see a book that distinguishes itself from the pack. OK, we've all had the basics, now why is my month array off by one (page 13)? Why is my instanceof test *always* failing (page 24)? What can I do about performance? In addition to pointing out optimal styles and common traps, Laffra has extended the Java toolkit (you should pardon the expression) with a visual debugger, a C++ to java translator, and the Little Toolkit (LTK) which is built on top of the Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) and addresses some of the drawbacks of AWT. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996
