Ce livre est la transition parfaite entre la saga Harry Potter et la trilogie des Magiciens. [...] En plus de tout ça, on trouve, en vrac : des références culturelles géniales, l'utilisation de la technologie par les sorciers, une guerre inter-espèces, la lutte contre le sexisme, des super-héros discrets, quelques insultes bien envoyées [...] un roman one-shot à lire absolument pour tous ceux qui aiment la magie, les histoires de grands ados (les héros sont majeurs) et, ok, les histoires d'amour un peu.
Java for Practitioners doesn't just provide an introduction to Java, it also tells you all about object orientation. One of the biggest problems with many of the Java books currently on the market is that they only teach the language and ignore the object orientation aspects (or at best devote one chapter to it). It is really just not possible to move from languages such as C and Pascal to Java without also moving to object orientation. Not only does John Hunt cover both Java and object orientation thoroughly but he also realises that practitioners learn best by 'doing' and he writes this book to reflect that. Chapters are dippable-into and ideas and concepts are introduced by exercises and practical examples. The book does of course cover the new release - Java 2/JDK 1.2 - and it also includes the Java Self-Tester which lets readers determine whether they are ready to take Sun's Java Certification exam. There is also an essential reference section which provides detailed solutions to real world Java problems (such as how to connect an applet to a database) and new Java features (such as the use of Java Servlets).
If you are a software developer then you need this book - no one intending to move over to Java should be without it.
