About this product
- DescriptionWhat if you could simplify Java to uncover its very best features, and learn how to build better applications with those parts alone? In this book, Jim Waldo - leader of the Jini project and one of the most highly respected developers in the Java world - peels away 15 years of additions and changes to reveal which features of Java work and which don't, and how the good parts make Java one of the best programming languages available. In an honest and straightforward manner, Waldo pulls punches in Java: The Good Parts. Java has accumulated a considerable amount of crud over the years: the language has become a large and complex, and the libraries associated with it have grown even more. You may t like some of the features Waldo reveals, but they'll actually help you write better code. Learn from one of Java's greatest masters how you can become a better software developer by using the parts of Java that matter most. This book is essential for every Java developer, from beginners to advanced programmers.
- Author BiographyJim Waldo is a Distinguished Engineer with Sun Microsystems Laboratories, where he investigates next-generation large-scale distributed systems. He is currently the technical lead of Project Darkstar, a multi-threaded, distributed infrastructure for massive multi-player on-line games and virtual worlds. Prior to his current assignment with Sun Labs, he was the lead architect for Jini, a distributed programming system based on Java. Before joining Sun, Jim spent eight years at Apollo Computer and Hewlett Packard working in the areas of distributed object systems, user interfaces, class libraries, text and internationalization. While at HP, he led the design and development of the first Object Request Broker, and was instrumental in getting that technology incorporated into the first OMG CORBA specification. Jim is a Professor of the Practice at Harvard University, where he teaches distributed computing and topics in the intersection of policy and technology in the department of computer science. Jim received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst). He also holds M.A. degrees in both linguistics and philosophy from the University of Utah. He is a member of the IEEE and ACM.
