The Elements of Java Style, written by renowned author Scott Ambler, Alan Vermeulen, and a team of programmers from Rogue Wave Software, is directed at anyone who writes Java code. Many books explain the syntax and basic use of Java; however, this essential guide explains not only what you can do with the syntax, but what you ought to do.

Just as Strunk and White's The Elements of Java Style provides rules of usage for the English language, this text furnishes a set of rules for Java practitioners. While illustrating these rules with parallel examples of correct and incorrect usage, the authors offer a collection of standards, conventions, and guidelines for writing solid Java code that will be easy to understand, maintain, and enhance. Java developers and programmers who read this book will write better Java code, and become more productive as well.

Indeed, anyone who writes Java code or plans to learn how to write Java code should have this book next to his/her computer.

Industry Reviews

'The Elements of Java Style is perfect in what it tries to achieve. Each rule is sensible, hardly any are debatable, and there is no excuse for ignoring any of them.' JavaZone Book of the Week
