Bitter Java

Bitter Java is available for free download.

I have heard good things about this book, so I'm looking forward to having a look.

I prefer dead-tree books, though, so if it is good, I'll almost certainly buy it. I have before.

Update 23rd July: It is good, and I did buy it.

Two main threads to my feelings. First, it is a great book for learning about patterns, if you are a J3EE developer, because it is so practical and hands-on.

Secondly, I get a bad feeling about my current project, because we have fallen into so many of the traps written about in this book. (We are not pooling connections, and our caching will leak memory.) Still, at least I know how to fix it!
