"Java Enterprise CD Bookshelf" Combines Three Award-Winning Java Books--And Four More
Sebastopol, CA--Last June, three O'Reilly Java books claimed the top
spots in the Best Book category of the 2000 Java Developers Journal
Readers' Choice Awards. With an overwhelming vote Java in a Nutshell by
David Flanagan, Java Servlet Programming by Jason Hunter, and
Enterprise JavaBeans by Richard Monson-Haefel, won the industry's
most prestigious award.
Now O'Reilly has released The Java Enterprise CD
those three books in an easy-to-carry, easy-to-access format. Adding to
that powerhouse are four more Java classics from O'Reilly: Java
Security by Scott Oaks, Java Distributed Computing by Jim Farley,
and best selling author David Flanagan's Java Enterprise in a
Nutshell (electronic version and hardcopy) and Java Foundation
Classes in a Nutshell.
Java professionals who increasingly rely on the Web, online help, and
other online information sources to get instant solutions to complex
problems, now can gain access to their favorite O'Reilly books directly
from their CD-ROM drive--anytime, anywhere in the world--and without
being bogged down by pounds upon pounds of heavy paper. Formatted in
HTML, The Java
Enterprise CD Bookshelf can be read using any Web
browser, is fully searchable and cross-referenced. In addition to
individual indexes for each book, a master index for the entire library
Not only light on that strained shoulder, The Java Enterprise CD
Bookshelf is also light on the wallet: Together the print versions of
these seven books would retail for $236.65. The Java Enterprise CD
Bookshelf gives you all that-and more-for $89.95.
What readers have to say about O'Reilly's other CD Bookshelves:
"I just got a job with a UNIX consulting firm, and so I started wishing
I could have the O'Reilly books on my notebook--I can't hardly carry
them to each customer site! I suppose that I'm behind the times, but I
just discovered your CD Bookshelf series. Exactly what I need, so I'm
going to order all three of them. Great idea!"
"Worth investing in, reclaims shelf spaceDefinitely worth the
investment, cheaper than buying the hard copy editions, and easier to
use as a reference. Five stars."
"I am a traveling consultant--taking a whole library of reference
materials was not possible. I of course carried the hardcopy UNIX in a
Nutshell. With the UNIX CD Bookshelf, I have an excellent set of
books at my fingertips without weighing down my suitcase. The search
engine is excellent, very unintrusive."
"I pop in the CD while I work on some UNIX stuff. It saves time and
hassle. I get more ideas and learn new things in a unique way."
The books included in the CD are:
