Re: Looking for "best of breed" developer/API docs
I'd appreciate any pointers you have to "best of breed"
developer or API documentation. If you have time to offer
commentary on what makes it so good, that's all the better.
While I was developing the material for the API Bootcamp
session that I gave at the Pan Pacific conference last
October, I asked the programmers that I worked with just
that question. Overwhelmingly, they pointed to _The_Java
_Class_Libraries_ by Patrick Chan, Rosanna Lee & Doug Kramer.
I've only thumbed through the book a couple of times --
never actually used it -- but it looks about as comprehensive
as reference material can get.
I have never heard a developer rave, favorably that is ;-),
over a developer's guide to anything. However, the developer
that I worked with on the developer's guide to the CORBA
Notification Service did actually smile when we were done!
