I don't control translations, but I believe there has been a Russian translation in the past.

Translations are projects that are motivated by the publisher in the foreign country. They typically just buy the translation rights, and from then on it's their own project, as if they were publishing the book from scratch (although they also usually get the cover art to work from). Basically, the foreign publisher takes the risk.

I'm working on the final chapter, and hope to have it done within the next few weeks. Since I produce camera-ready copy, the turnaround after that has been quite short in the past, so I would expect you could get a copy within the next couple of months.

I just saw that the 4th edition is listed on Amazon with a release date of march 2006. What does this mean for the online version? Keep up with the outstanding work!

Dear Bruce,

I’d like to thank you very much for your wonderful efforts in bringing Java to life and introducing its features within such great and modular book.
I used the first and the second editions as main guides in training and coaching the new Java software engineers in my development teams.
Now, we are using the 3rd edition to provide a new team of developers with the best reference for mastering Java and I’m waiting for the 4th edition to surprise them with the fabulist gift of the New Year.

Thanks allot for that indirect help of your behind-the-scenes support!

BTW, in order to avoid finding myself a real fabulist -god forbid:-), I’d like to ask you about the announced publishing date on Amazon (February 17th, 2006)… Is that an accurate estimation?

Thanks and best regards.

Hey Bruce... I was just wondering if you had any updates on the book release. Also, is there a contractual reason why you do not go ahead and post the forthcoming 4th edition of the book in its currrent form? If not, I think it would be great if you could do this since the chapters that are not complete are well into the book. THANKS!

Hi Bruce,

Your Java Book makes learning enjoyable and I am looking forward to reading your 4th Ed as well for updating my knowledge.

I do have a question: Are we going to get free solution manual of the 4TH ed (when available) if we bought the one for the 3rd edition?

Thanks and have a great year.

Hi Bruce,

I have read the Preview copy from your site of TIJ-4 It does include only first seven chapters (Introduction, Introduction to Objects, Everything is an Object, Operators, Controlling Execution, Initialization and Cleanup and AccessControl). There was nothing new in these chapters except Enhanced For Loop (I have not compared it with the third edition entirely and perhaps it includes some changes in previously present topics, but I am speaking of only new topics included).


The chapter on Annotations and generics is not included in the sample chapters. I am eagerly waiting for it. There is very little talked about Annotations and they are often critisized by people by saying "Framework junkies will pick annotation as a replacement of all kinds of metadata And the annotations make code ugly" There is really little said about inheritance in annotations and what about If we have two annotations with same name but in different packages? And In generics, please also include information about inner classes' behavior regarding the generic Type.
For example the first code snippet written below does not compile while second code snippet compiles.


/** Code Listing - 1 */

class MyClass<T> {

public void print(T obj) {
System.out.println(obj);
}

class Inner<T> {
public void print(T obj) {
MyClass.this.print(obj);
}
}

}

/** Code Listing - 2 */

class MyClass<T> {

public void print(T obj) {
System.out.println(obj);
}

class Inner<t extends T> {
public void print(t obj) {
MyClass.this.print(obj);
}
}

}

I do understand the difference but find it difficult to explain myself.

Would you explain it in your chapter on Generics?
