JDK 1.4 Tutorial lets experienced developers as well as novices learn JDK 1.4's new features quickly. It provides a clear exposition of the important new topics with plenty of well documented code. All the examples are substantial and solve real-world problems but aren't cluttered with unnecessary details. The new features are covered in a comprehensive and matter-of-fact way without digressions into philosophy or theory.
