This book is designed to provide potential JINI developers with an introduction to the platform via Prentice Hall's popular "By Example" method. The book adopts the pragmatic and practical approach the reader can learn by doing, learn "by example," so the book is short on theory and concept, while covering them adequately well, and long on examples and code.show more
