Now, Core Java (R), Volume II-Advanced Features, Tenth Edition, has been extensively updated to reflect the most eagerly awaited and innovative version of Java in years: Java SE 8. Rewritten and reorganized to illuminate powerful new Java features, idioms, and best practices for enterprise and desktop development, it contains hundreds of up-to-date example programs-all carefully crafted for easy understanding and practical applicability. Writing for serious programmers solving real-world problems, Cay Horstmann deepens your understanding of today's Java language and library. In this second of two updated volumes, he offers in-depth coverage of advanced topics including the new Streams API and date/time/calendar library, advanced Swing, security, code processing, and more. This guide will help you Use the new Streams library to process collections more flexibly and efficientlyEfficiently access files and directories, read/write binary or text data, and serialize objectsWork with Java SE 8's regular expression packageMake the most of XML in Java: parsing, validation, XPath, document generation, XSL, and moreEfficiently connect Java programs to network servicesProgram databases with JDBC 4.2Elegantly overcome date/time programming complexities with the new java.time APIWrite internationalized programs with localized dates/times, numbers, text, and GUIsProcess code with the scripting API, compiler API, and annotation processors Enforce security via class loaders, bytecode verification, security managers, permissions, user authentication, digital signatures, code signing, and encryption Master advanced Swing components for lists, tables, trees, text, and progress indicatorsProduce high-quality drawings with the Java 2D APIUse JNI native methods to leverage code in other languages If you're an experienced programmer moving to Java SE 8, Core Java (R), Tenth Edition, is the reliable, practical, and complete guide to the Java platform that has been trusted by developers for over twenty years. Look for the companion volume, Core Java (R), Volume I-Fundamentals, Tenth Edition (ISBN-13: 978-0-13-417730-4), for foundational coverage of Java 8 language concepts, UI programming, objects, generics, collections, lambda expressions, concurrency, functional programming, and more.
