    Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 3rd Edition:

    Mr. Harold is the best writer on Java whom I am aware of.

    Not only is his technical knowledge superb, but his writing style is very informative, often amusing. His coverage of topics is also thorough, detailed and often pleasantly and usefully quirky.

    This particular book covers a very wide range of topics, all having some relation to Java networking functionality.

    Illustrative of the high quality of coverage of topics that impinge on Java networking is Mr. Harold's treatment of threading. Although relatively brief (one chapter) with respect to other excellent complete books on threading, such as Java Threads, published by O'Reilly, or Java Concurrency in Practice or Concurrent Programming in Java, the coverage of that topic is markedly informative and concise.

    I cannot recommend this book or any of Mr. Harold's other books on Java highly enough.

      Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 3rd Edition:

      The book is fantastic. I should note that I don't like programming books but this one is so engaging that you can't stop reading it. It also deepened my interest in programing and developed my other programming skills. The first chapters describe the bases of networking and internet and after that the reader has a chance to use Java with networking.

      Java Network Programming, Third Edition

      By bjordan

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 3rd Edition:

      I'm not ready to waste time on book so packed with javadoc info. Why should i know about all the possible constructors of InetAddress or Socket? It's possible to find all info about them in online documentation.

      Thread discussion is very dry - author doesn't even mention new java 1.5 concurrent classes like executor or callable.

      So my verdict is don't waste your money - buy yourself a Java NIO book instead.

      If you are serious about Java, get this book

      Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 3rd Edition:

      If you are interested in gaining the required theory to do network programming in Java, get this book.

      I find it presents a very good background material on topics related to network programming (like basic IO and Thread programming) that are not usually addressed in network programming books.

      The author also provides simple (but complete) source code examples to make a point very clear.

      If you are serious about Java in general, this is a good tool to add to your box.
