From tutorials to advanced references, the publishing community has stepped up with new titles covering Java 17 and other new technologies.
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” Thus spoke the American academic Charles William Eliot (1834–1926), proudly surveying his vast collection of leather-bound Java tutorials, references, cookbooks, and language specifications.
Professor Eliot may not have been the first to stock a well-appointed library with software engineering titles, but certainly many of us have vast collections of programming titles. Why books? Sometimes a web search doesn’t provide the deep information that a developer requires to help master a new language feature. It’s hard to be inspired by an API’s dry reference materials, and even a fabulous magazine article may not offer sufficient context.
That’s where books—whether printed or digital—serve and delight.
To celebrate the release of Java 17, Java Magazine reached out to the book community and asked them to share their list of upcoming Java titles to be published by the end of 2021, more or less. (The following descriptions are provided by the publishers.)
Java Magazine thanks the Oracle Publishers Program for collaborating on this article and compiling the latest Java titles. This program works with participating industry publishers to support the creation of high-quality, Oracle technology–focused books.
