The support of Java Report by the pioneers of the language has always made it the 'magazine of record' for Java development. From the very beginnings of Java, Java Report was there, examining each new aspect of the language with a clear independent eye. Now, Dwight Deugo, the editor of Java Report, has gathered the most important articles from the first year of the magazine. Written by a who's who of industry experts, Java Gems covers today's most important aspects of Java development. Java Gems' top writers and developers walk you through the topic areas that are essential to today's Java developers, including multitasking, design patterns, class libraries, persistence, distributed computing, and Java vs C++.
