Effective Java is an explicit (and acknowledged) homage to Scott Meyer's Effective C++. Josh Bloch shares the programming practices of the most expert Java programmers with the rest of the programming community. Distilling the habits of experienced programmers into 50 short stand-alone essays, Bloch has laid out the most essential and effective Java rules, providing comprehensive descriptions of techniques. The essays address practical problems that all Java programmers encounter, presents specific ways to improve programs and designs, and also shows how to avoid traps in Java programming. An enormously useful book, each essay contains top notch code examples and insightful "war stories" that help capture the students' attention.
