O'Reilly & Associates publishes an entire series of books on Java programming. These books include Java in a Nutshell and Java Enterprise in a Nutshell, which, as mentioned earlier, are companions to this book.

A related reference work is the Java Power Reference. It is an electronic Java quick reference on CD-ROM that uses the Java in a Nutshell style. But since it is designed for viewing in a web browser, it is fully hyperlinked and includes a powerful search engine. It is wider in scope but narrower in depth than the Java in a Nutshell books. The Java Power Reference covers all the APIs of the Java 2 platform, plus the APIs of many standard extensions. But it does not include tutorial chapters on the various APIs, nor does it include descriptions of the individual classes.

You can find a complete list of Java books from O'Reilly & Associates at http://java.oreilly.com/. Books of particular interest to JFC programmers include the following:

Java Swing, by Robert Eckstein, Marc Loy, and Dave Wood

A complete guide to the Swing graphical user interface toolkit.

Java 2D Graphics, by Jonathan Knudsen

A comprehensive tutorial on the Java 2D API, from basic drawing techniques to advanced image processing and font handling.

Java AWT Reference, by John Zukowski

A complete reference manual (not a quick reference like this book) to the graphics and GUI features of the AWT. This book covers Java 1.0 and Java 1.1, and although some AWT features have been superseded by the Swing and Java 2D APIs, the AWT is still the foundation for all graphics and graphical user interfaces in Java.

Exploring Java, by Pat Niemeyer and Joshua Peck

A comprehensive tutorial introduction to Java, with an emphasis on client-side Java programming.
