Designed to be your companion, this Pocket Guide provides a quick reference to the standard features of the Java programming language and its platform.
This Pocket Guide provides you with the information you will need while developing or debugging your Java programs, includ‐ ing helpful programming examples, tables, figures, and lists. It also contains supplemental information about things such as the Java Scripting API, third-party tools, and the basics of the Unified Modeling Language (UML).
The material in this book also provides support in preparing for the Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 7 Programmer I Exam. If you are considering pursuing this Java certification, you may also wish to consider acquiring OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Study Guide (Exam 1Z0-803) by Edward Finegan and Robert Liguori (McGraw-Hill Osborne Media, 2012).
Java coverage in this book is representative through Java SE 8. However, the primary differences between this Java 8 Pocket Guide and the prior Java 7 Pocket Guide is the addition of the Date and Time API and the Lambda Expressions chapters.
