I’ve been looking around for something like Dive Into Python but for Java. So far, no luck.
Any recommendations would be very welcome.
I never really used it as a “course”. i.e. I didn’t start from the beginning and go chapter by chapter. I think I like it because it is organized by subject, so you can just jump down to whatever you are interested in. I never really found an actual physical book that I liked.
I took the Sun web course on Java about 5 years ago, but I don’t remember much about it. The courses spent too much time on things found in all languages and not enough about what makes Java different than, say, Python or C++.
