A Never Traditional Welcome
So if you've wandered over this way, you must be interested in the newest version of Java, "Tiger". I'd call it by its version number, but that seems to actually be one of its most confusing features -- I guess it shoook out to be 5.0, but even the product URLs still have 1.5.0 in them still :-)
So Dan, the editor-in-chief of java.net, suggested I post a welcome. He even thought it might be good to put some positive reviews up, maybe talk about the new and innovative format. But that's hard for me -- I'm just sort of a geeky author who happens to be in love with his work, and even his life (yes, it's hard to believe).
So maybe I'll do what I usually do -- which is not do what I've been asked :-) That said, here is what I would like to do. I'd like you to basically light me up with questions, comments, complaints, and anything else you can think of. In other words, I'm not one who wants a bunch of, "Hey, this book is the greatest thing in the world!" type posts. I'd rather get into some interesting issues; or maybe some things that I could have done better; or even some errors I made that I can fix for future readers. There are enough people in the world to offer up kinds words -- I'd rather talk programming :-)
So bring it on, folks. As always, I'm looking forward to it!
Author, this book :-)
