  1. Top 10 at JavaOne (3 messages)

    Here are the top 10 selling books at the JavaOne Bookstore. Are these a trend? You decide. 1. JavaFX: Building Rich Internet Applications - Addison Wesley ISBN: 013701287X 2. Essential JavaFX - PTR (out June 11, 2009) ISBN: 0137042795 3. Effective Java 2nd ed. - PTR ISBN: 0321356683 4. Java Puzzlers - Addison Wesley ISBN: 032133678X 5. Programming in Scala - Artima ISBN: 0981531601 6. Java Concurrency in Practice - Addison Wesley ISBN:0321349601 7. Beginning Java EE 5: From Novice to Professional - Apress ISBN: 1590594703 8. The Definitive Guide to Lift - Apress ISBN: 1430224215 9. Beginning Scala - Apress ISBN: 1430219890 10. OpenSolaris Bible - Wiley ISBN: 0470385480 At the end of the first day Programming in Scala was #1. After Josh Bloch and Neal Gafter's Java Puzzlers session it moved to #1. The JavaFX books moved to the top two positions towards the end of the show. Is Sun/Oracle too late with this language (shrug)? Only time will tell (and a short time at that). The classics 'Effective Java' and 'Java Concurrency in Practice' were there as expected. The ever growing Scala interest (including Lift) is very intriguing. Is it the next one? That's for the community to decide. Comeon people make a decision!! A little surprised at 'Beginning Java EE 5'. Oh well, gotta learn it sometime. No time like the present
