I believe the chapter "Holding Your Objects 389" will talk about "Collections"

Because of the complexity of the topic, there are now two chapters: the introductory chapter is called "Holding your Objects," while the more advance chapter is called "Containers in Depth."

I don't use the term "Collections" because "Collection" is an interface in Java, which means "Sequence" (since it doesn't include Map).

A request: in the chapters on threads, please don't use applets as examples. If one skips applet programming, the examples are very hard to follow. Thanks for considering.

I stopped using applets for threading examples in the third edition.

Bruce,

You mentioned that there won't be any cdrom with the TIJ4 book. I have a suggestion .... why not come with two versions of the book ... one without any cdrom and the other with the Hands on Java cdrom.

I recently used the hands on java cdrom and i think its fantastic, and packaging both the disc and the book together would be a good idea. Mainly because well... its much more easier to internalize the concepts when you gone through the seminar first and then the book.

Whether the content of the book with the cdrom is more tailored for use with the hands on java cdrom or not is upto you.

Dear Bruce Eckel :
Really thanks a lot for one of the best programming
tutorials I 've been in JAVA.

I am a Chinese student studying computer science in both Chinese and Australian universities. It's absolutely funny when my classmates from 2 countries learning in different way, but they all like "thinking in JAVA" with you.Thank you so much for such a great gift in programming.

Now I am waiting for your Thinking in Java, 4th Edition. I love reading your book like a artistic novel.

Thanks a million Bruce for your excellent book on Java...I'm just addicted to it.

Well I have already brought the 3rd edition, but when the 4th edition comes will i have to buy the book again just to see what has been added. Can there be a patch release for the 3rd edition owners [ Linux kernel patches style] ? I'm not exactly sure how it can be done, but my small brain just says this...

A booklet that contains only the newly added chapters.

Or any other way that is both feasible and profitable to both you and the public. of course we hav the option of downloading the on-line version [ if you are to provide it]......but a printed one is just great.

I request this because a Low Price Edition in India costs nearly Rupees 550 [approx $13] but it is still out of reach for people like me. [i wonder how they call it a low price edition?! ]

Will there be an electronic version of the book (I much prefer ebooks over paper)? If so, will it be free like its predecessors? And what is the estimated publication date? Lots of questions... :-)
