    Up And Coming SitePoint Books

    Is there any chance that SitePoint will publish a book on Java? I will need to learn that probably within the next year or so for a new development project which is underway at work. Sure would be nice to add a SP book on that subject to my bookshelf.

    Do your own homework

    I agree that a Java/JSP book would be cool. Or even more blog posts from Kev

    And yes... more Java articles would be nice too. I've been liking the recent few or so.

    Nah.... I must be hallucinating.

    Sorry vinyl-junkie but I am not sure about a java book.

    Duuudie, there is a DHTML Anthology book right around the corner. It sounds like it will be your kind of book.

    Just to clarify:

    The upcoming book on DHTML/JavaScript/DOM is DHTML Utopia: Modern Web Design with JavaScript & DOM, written by Stuart Langridge and tech edited by Simon Willison. It's a tutorial-based book, not an Anthology-style cookbook. It'll be published very shortly (I think it's an absolutely fantastic book).

    We do have plans for a Build Your Own.. Java/JSP book, but it's unlikely that we'll get around to publishing it soon - there are only so many books we can work on at one time

    Spose I'll just have to wait then. Nice to hear it though.

    I am guessing that a Java/JSP book would have to be pretty big and pretty comprehensive to cover all of the intricacies of the subject. I would definitely be interested in it though

    Thanks for the info, Simon. Sounds like I won't be able to wait for a SP book considering my circumstances, but I'll still buy it when it's published.

    I have an old JSP book from 2001 and it's about 900 pages long. There's been a lot added to JSP/servlets in those 4 years too

    Yep, and now you have Struts, Java 5.0, and things like Hibernate (the mapping service) so things could get big very quickly.

    Off Topic:

    Yeah, keeping up to date on JSP stuff can be its own full-time job. I'm in the middle of learning JSTL and all the other stuff that's come out in the last couple of years that I haven't kept up with.

    You guys keep making, and I keep buying (in other words, I keep making you money...hehe).

    However, with school work, learning new languages, completing my internship, and looking for a job (and then real work initiatives), how the heck are us blokes supposed to be able to keep up with the presses?!?!

    ...btw, I'll probably be buying that XML+PHP book, even though my last purchased book (ASP.NET), I've only had time to get to Chapter 3...and the Tableless Design Using CSS, yeah...I flipped through the pages. Though I have used the CSS Tips, Tricks, and Hacks a bit already - it's a decent reference.
    They say, "Practice makes perfect," yet they also say, "Nobody's perfect". I don't get it.

    PHP 5 - there's a lot of material on SimpleXML in the book. It also covers DOM and SAX.

    There are plenty of good books for learning the basics of Java, as well as server-side Java. One of the best books for Java is Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java, and he actually publishes it for FREE on the web. Can't beat that. For Servlets/JSP, I like Core Servlets and JavaServerPages, from Sun Press, and the second book, More Servlets and JSP. I've also heard that the Head First book is good, and judging from the other Professional titles, I would think that Professional Servlets is good as well.

    As for other technologies/frameworks such as Struts, JSF, Spring, Hibernate, etc, they are large enough topics on their own that nobody could write a book that thoroughly covers them all. The Servlet specification is huge enough on its own...then you add in all these other frameworks that you want/have to use, and you end up with a pretty nice library
