Details about Java Cookbook: Problems and Solutions for Java Developers
Java Cookbook 4th edition PDF free download – Java has seemed better suited to “development in the large,” or enterprise application development, than to the one-line, one-off script in Perl, Awk, or Python. That’s because it is a compiled, object-oriented language. However, this suitability has changed somewhat with the appearance of JShell (see Recipe 1.4). I illustrate many techniques with shorter Java class examples and even code fragments; some of the simpler ones will be shown using JShell.
All of the code examples (other than some one- or two-liners) are in one of my public GitHub repositories, so you can rest assured that every fragment of code you see here has been compiled, and most have been run recently. Some of the longer examples in this book are tools that I originally wrote to automate some mundane task or another. For example, a tool called MkIndex (in the javasrc repository) reads the top-level directory of the place where I keep my Java example source code, and it builds a browser-friendly index.html file for that directory. Another example is XmlForm, which was used to convert parts of the manuscript from XML into the form needed by another publishing software. XmlForm also handled—by use of another program, GetMark—full and partial code insertions from the javasrc directory into the book manuscript. XmlForm is included in the Github repository I mentioned, as is a later version of GetMark, though neither of these was used in building the fourth edition. These days, O’Reilly’s Atlas publishing software uses Asciidoctor, which provides the mechanism we use for inserting files and parts of files into the book.
