Looking for book suggestions

P: n/a
Hey guys,

Are there any specific books that you can recommend to someone who is
familiar and comfortable with C# and is looking to increase his knowledge of
Java?

I need to brush up on my Java (which I haven't touched in a long time, and
only a little then) and am looking for a book that teaches Java and is
targeted to someone coming from a C# background.

If no such book exists, are there any other, more general books that
compare/contrast C# and Java?

Thanks a lot,
-Flack

Why not simply go with some standard JSE book like Core Java? The
similarities between C# and Java become pretty obvious rather soon ;-)

Hi Joerg,

I believe that the differences between Java and C# might interest you

Java Precisely describes all of Java 5.0, and includes an overview
comparison of Java 5.0 and C# 2.0:

Bart,

rest assured that I'm totally aware of the differences between C# and
Java. The point is that once you know either one language, you can
easily move on to the other one using your favourite beginner's book.

Also note that Dare's article is pretty dated: It compares C# from .NET
1.0 Beta 2 to Java 1.4 Beta 2. That means no Generic Types, no for each
loop, no autoboxing, no covariant return types, no static imports, yada
yada...
