Beginning Java(tm) SE 6 Platform: From Novice to Professional steers you through the maze of new and improved Java Standard Edition (SE) 6 features. The first chapter sets the stage by introducing Java SE 6 in terms of its name change, themes, an overview, and a sampling of new features. It also briefly discusses the first two Java SE 6 updates.
The remaining nine chapters organize features into the following categories: core libraries, GUI toolkits: AWT, GUI toolkits: Swing, internationalization, Java Database Connectivity, monitoring and management, networking, scripting, and security and web services. While exploring these chapters, you will encounter a variety of useful and interesting topics: introducing a new locale with its own currency, creating a new JConsole plug-in, creating a scripted JEditorPane component, invoking and communicating with JavaFX Script and JRuby scripts from a Java application that interacts with the Scripting API, signing an arbitrary XML document and validating a signed document's XML signature, and accessing an existing web service are examples.
