FRUUG Library Notes

This month's library additions:

From Addison Wesley, we have the Java FAQ-- the answers to all of your questions on the Java programming language, Java applets, and Java stand-alone applications.

From O'Reilly, we have Netscape IFC in a Nutshell. This is a desktop quick reference for Java programmers wishing to use Netscape's Internet Foundation Classes.

And another in the Java Series... from the Source is Addison Wesley's JDBC Database Access with Java. This book provides a tutorial and an annotated reference on all JDBC classes and interfaces.

You may check books out using your business card as your library card; you must be on the membership list to check books out. Books are due at the meeting following the one in which they are checked out. If you don't return your library books by the next meeting, you might find yourself on our overdue book list. We count on you returning books on time so that other members may have the chance to use them as well.
