Here is the Java 1.1 pocket reference on a single CD! The CD contains electronic versions of the O'Reilly Java series'Java in a Nutshell (2nd Edition)','Exploring Java 2nd ed.','Java Language Reference 2nd ed.','Java Fundamental Classes Reference'and'Java AWT Reference'. All the books are for Java version 1.1. The CD comes with a combined index and search facility, which enables fast searching and cross- referencing for topics of interest. In addition the package includes a copy of the'Java in a Nutshell'book (physical rather than electronic) and a one-year subscription to O'Reilly's on-line WWW Java reference library.

'Java in a Nutshell (2nd Edition)'is intended as a desktop reference (I reviewed this in a recent C Vu),'Exploring Java'as a introductory text aimed at C/C++ programmers and'Java Language Reference','Java Fundamental Classes Reference'and'Java AWT Reference'form a complete reference to the Java language and core APIs (I reviewed all these in recent issues of C Vu).

This package provides the Java programmer with a paper based version of 'Java in a Nutshell' supported by the reference volumes on CD (which are too large to carry around in a briefcase). This would be suitable for the professional programmer developing real-world systems who needs a portable complete reference to Java. A very useful package which is highly recommended!
