With the 1.1 release, Java has grown too large to fit in a single book, even in quick-reference form. Thus, we see the need to splitJava in a Nutshellinto multiple volumes. This volume, the "original"Java in a Nutshell, documents the most commonly used features of Java and is an indispensable reference for all Java programmers. We may publish a separate volume that will cover the Java "Enterprise APIs", which include the database connectivity, remote method invocation, and security features, as well as other forthcoming components, such as CORBA IDL support and the electronic commerce framework. And as other new Java APIs are developed and released, we may consider adding new volumes to theJava in a Nutshellseries.
