Core Java® has long been recognized as the leading, no-nonsense tutorial and reference for experienced programmers who want to write robust Java code for real-world applications. Now, Core Java®, Volume II—Advanced Topics, Tenth Edition, has been extensively updated to reflect the most eagerly awaited and innovative version of Java in years: Java SE 8. Rewritten and reorganized to illuminate powerful new Java features, idioms, and best practices for enterprise and desktop development, it contains hundreds of up-to-date example programs—all carefully crafted for easy understanding and practical applicability.


Writing for serious programmers solving real-world problems, Cay Horstmann deepens your understanding of today’s Java language and library. In this second of two updated volumes, he offers in-depth coverage of expert-level topics including the new Streams API and date/time/calendar library, advanced Swing, security, code processing, and more. This guide will help you


  • Use the new Streams library to process collections more flexibly and efficiently
  • Efficiently access files and directories, read/write binary or text data, and serialize objects
  • Work with Java SE 8’s regular expression package
  • Make the most of XML in Java: parsing, validation, XPath, document generation, XSL, and more
  • Efficiently connect Java programs to network services
  • Program databases with JDBC 4.2
  • Elegantly overcome date/time programming complexities with the new java.time API
  • Write internationalized programs with localized dates/times, numbers, text, and GUIs
  • Process code with the scripting API, compiler API, and annotation processors
  • Enforce security via class loaders, bytecode verification, security managers, permissions, user authentication, digital signatures, code signing, and encryption
  • Master advanced Swing components for lists, tables, trees, text, and progress indicators
  • Produce high-quality drawings with the Java 2D API
  • Use JNI native methods to leverage code in other languages

If you’re an experienced programmer moving to Java SE 8, Core Java®, Tenth Edition, will be your reliable, practical companion—now and for many years to come.


Look for the companion volume, Core Java®, Volume I—Fundamentals, Tenth Edition (ISBN-13: 978-0-13-417730-4), for foundational coverage of Java 8 language concepts, UI programming, objects, generics, collections, lambda expressions, concurrency, functional programming, and more.
