where they do the 'official rename'.
(and others): consider taking a look at
Bruce Eckel's Thinking In Java
, especially the free versions available online. In general, I only buy used books from Amazon vendors or trade on
. The other day I nabbed a nice O'Reilly book on C from BookMooch and I actually paid $2.96 for a (like-new) book on Hacking Google Maps from Amazon. I just can't justify going into a book store and plunking down $50.00 for a two year old text. I'll only do it if the book is VERY recent and has enough info to make it worth my while.
is good also, I've belonged to that for awhile.
As to the OT and topic at hand, I personally recommend going for it and working with Java / JSP. It's not like PHP is going to be out of your grasp as a tool (which is what these languages are).
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.
