Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition Review

By Todd Lanning

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition:

This is a surprisingly easy read for a technical book. I don't often sit down for hours on end reading code examples, but that is exactly what I found myself doing, and didn't miss a step. Java Network Programming is a well-written book, and was succinct enough to keep interest, yet thorough enough to get to all the detailed questions. Highly Recommended.

Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition Review

Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition:

Yes, defenitely the book has lots of valuable info. But I feel it is badly

organised. The author seemed to have lost focus here and there. I had read the

first edition as well.

The examples could have been simpler, I feel the same about the language too.

Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition Review

By James

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition:

This book is very good for the starter. But after that it is not clear where the specifics are.

Maybe I am not understanding it well, but it should atleast give me a direction where to go from the spots that there is no further information.

My specific case is in DNS query section.

I have tried many thing to send a DNS query to a location and get the all the information back from the server, information that explained in RFC 1035, header, question, answer, .... and so on.

In general I like the book. I would suggest this book for starters.

Thanks,

Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition Review

Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition:

Great book. Includes awesome classes, explains great techniques. Also explores many other aspects. Only other things it needed was a chapter on data structures for client handling and a chapter on security (preventing DoS'ers) and cryptography (secure logons with SHA). Other than that, it was great!

Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition Review

By Dan Hinojosa

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition:

This book is absolutely definitive. Elliotte Rusty Harold has a knack for explaining Java information so that it is understandable for beginners and highly technical for the savvy. The book is a full compendium of TCP, UDP, Socket Programming, RMI, JavaMail, content handling, W3C/IETF standards, and more. This book and its sister book, Java I/O, are a must for any Java programmer that takes their work seriously.

Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition Review

By Martin Bertolino

Comments about oreilly Java Network Programming, 2nd Edition:

Excelent book. Very well organized, I was able to get the explanations and answers I needed in no time. I have a C++ background, extensive socket programming, and no experience with web related protocols (HTTP). The explanations on how to do client side web programming are very clear and precise.

Excellent Java networking book for beginners (just you know some fundamentals in Java and a bit of programming experience, you can totally understand what it says).
