"...a dedicated programmer could find no better way to learn the Mac OS X Java way short of sitting at the foot of a Java master."
--The Macintosh Guild, October 2003

"Java developers approaching OS X for the first time will want to know where all the Java files reside, what ancillary tools (such as code editors) are available, and where other familiar tools (such as Ant) are stored. The first part of the book deals with that. From there, 'Mac OS X for Java Geeks' covers all aspects of programming with Java on OS X. The information is not designed to teach Java--there are other good texts for learning (such as 'Head First Java'). This book is for Java programmers who want to take advantage of the OS X platform with its in-built Java applications and Unix shell."
-Major Keary, AUSOM News, September 2003

"I've had a PowerBook for about three months now and I thought that I had Java on Mac OS X figured out. How wrong could I be! First of all, it's worth pointing out that Mac OS X for Java Geeks by Will Iverson is not your normal Java book. It doesn't teach you how to use Java, and it doesn't teach you how to use Mac OS X either. Instead, it takes you on a tour of what's available for us Java developers on the Mac OS X platform, looking at topics that pull together to make Java development an easier and richer experience...if you're an existing Java developer and have recently moved over to the Mac, I strongly recommend this book. I only wish I had found it sooner!"
