Microsoft Visual J++ 6.0 Programmer's Guide
by Microsoft Corporation (Editor)

Paperback: 500 pages
Dimensions (in inches): 1.00 x 8.97 x 7.36
Publisher: Microsoft Press
ISBN: 1572318694; (October 1998) Microsoft Visual J++ 6.0 Programmer's Guide gets you started in the Visual J++ 6 programming environment. This guide, printed from the online reference, covers the basics of projects and debugging, as well as the important technologies available in Visual J++, including Windows Foundation Classes (WFC), COM, and ActiveX programming. (Separate sections look at creating custom COM/ActiveX components, as well as consuming existing components within Visual J++ applications.) This book also provides a list of all compiler errors and warnings, as well as Java keywords (including Microsoft-specific Java keywords). It introduces basic programming techniques and provides an excellent guide to what's special about Microsoft's Java tool, particularly in its philosophy with component programming using WFC. --Richard Dragan

Ingram: This programmer's guide offers a comprehensive road map for the beginning to intermediate Java user to using the Visual J++ development tool. Rather than teaching the Java language, it's a guide to using the interface, advanced tools, and wizards in the Microsoft implementation. The guide introduces Visual J++, New Edition, working with solutions and projects, Beans, design tools, debugging and deploying applications and more.

Not the Java I expected...., July 7, 2000
Reviewer: Guillermo Garcia Guzman from Mexico City, Mexico City Mexico

If you wanna learn Java don't try this but, basically it's divided in two chapters, the first one has nothing but technical references and the other one has a minnimum of code and it really doesn't explain how to program at all.

If you wanna make programs with forms try Visual Basic!

A descent book on Visual J++ 6.0, March 12, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Raleigh, North Carolina

Getting beyond Java religious fervor is difficult for some. Technically speaking, this book goes into lots of important detail including WFC, J/Direct, etc. The only better book on VJ++ on the market as of this writing is the Programming Visual J++ book also in the Microsoft Press series by Stephen Davis. Visual J++ is an important contribution to the language and is actually less of a resource hog than other IDEs than Symantec or VisualAge.

Talks the features but doesnt show you how, February 17, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Fort Worth, TExas

As a start up J++ developer this books lacks what I was looking for or need. This is really a outline of what it will do, ie whether to purchuse J++ or not.

Want real Java? Avoid Microsoft products., December 12, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from Kingston, NJ

It is to Microsoft's financial advantage to crush Java, because the language's platform independence represents a threat to their monopoly. They are using their usual tactic of "embrace, extend, and extinguish" in the case of Visual J++. This is confirmed by Java experts on forums such as news://, and by Sun's recent lawsuit against Microsoft for violation of the contract by which Microsoft uses the Java trademark.

Besides that, the tool is simply inferior to real Java products such as Borland JBuilder and Symantec Cafe. It is a struggle to use it to do useful work, despite the bleatings of the MS spin machine, which has clearly been at work amongst the suits at

Want real Java? Avoid Microsoft and its books. Want Microsoft? Stick to Visual Basic.
