The Java Power Tools book has been named a finalist in the 2008 JOLT Awards ! The JOLT awards have been referred to as the Oscars of the software industry, so it's a huge honour to have been selected in the finalists . Java Power Tools appears in the Technical Books category, along with 4 other compelling high-calibre works, including:
- High Performance MySQL by Baron Schwartz, Peter Zaitsev, Vadim Tkachenko, Jeremy Zawodny, Arjen Lentz, Derek J. Balling (O'Reilly Media)
