"Eclipse Cookbook": Task-Oriented Solutions to More Than 175 Common Eclipse Problems
Sebastopol, CA--"Eclipse is where the action is in Java today," according to author and well-known Java expert Steve Holzner, "and this book is all about mastering Eclipse." Eclipse is the powerful open source platform that gives Java developers a new way to approach development projects. Holzner's Eclipse Cookbook (O'Reilly, US $44.95) is for Java programmers at all levels who are ready to go beyond tutorials--far beyond writing plug-ins and extensions--and actually use the powerful and convenient Eclipse.
Eclipse is to Java developers what Visual Studio is to .NET developers: an integrated development environment (IDE) that combines a code editor, compiler, debugger, text editor, graphical user interface (GUI) builder, and other components into a single, user-friendly application. It provides a solid foundation that enables Java developers to construct and run integrated software-development tools for web development, application design, modeling, performance, testing, and much more.
"Eclipse is a great tool, but it's also a complicated one," says Holzner, "and not everyone has the time to spend days trying to unravel it. That's where this book comes in; it unravels Eclipse for you." An award-winning and best-selling author who has been writing about Java topics since the language first appeared, Holzner delivers just the kind of targeted, practical, everyday knowledge developers and programmers need to hone their mastery of Eclipse.
Eclipse Cookbook is perfect as a companion to an Eclipse programming
tutorial (such as Holzner's own Eclipse, O'Reilly, April 2004) or as a
stand-alone for all those developers who either don't want or don't need
the tutorial approach. This book contains task-oriented recipes for more
than 175 situations developers may encounter while using this new Java
platform, such as:
Each of Holzner's recipes contains a clear and thorough description of a problem, a brief but complete discussion of a solution, and examples illustrating that solution. From fundamental skills to advanced topics--and including coverage of Eclipse 3.0--the book will illuminate readers on nearly every aspect of the extensive programming tool so they can revolutionize their programming with Eclipse.
