O'Reilly & Associates, Inc. publishes an entire series of books on Java programming. These books include Java Foundation Classes 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 that focus on the core Java APIs, as this one does, include:
