Now, this expanded second volume provides developers the comprehensive guide they need to solve real-world problems and is an indispensable companion to CORE JAVA 2, VOL. I: FUNDAMENTALS (0-13-766957-7). Completely revised and updated, the new edition features coverage of the advanced features and libraries of the Java 2 Platform and even more of the source code examples that have won universal praise for CORE JAVA.

This volume includes new sections on multithreading in Swing programs, JDBC2, CORBA, the drag-and-drop mechanism, and the Java 2 security model, as well as three completely new chapters.

Also, a new chapter, "Collections," explores the design of the Java collections framework and shows how to use the fundamental data structures that the standard Java library supplies. In addition, the new "Advanced AWT" chapter shows how to use the Java 2D API to produce high-quality drawings.
