    Default Looking for good book that teaches Java with Eclipse as development environment

    Hi all,

    I'm Evert, born in 1967 as the name says :-) .

    I want to teach myself Java. Should be possible, since I have plenty of experience in other programming languages.

    Since I want to use Eclipse for development, I'm looking for a book that explains both Java and Eclipse. The emphasis should be on Java teaching, and I'd like the book to teach GUI development as well.

    Until now I've only found books that either teach Java (plain or with a development environment that's different from Eclipse) or that extensively treat Eclipse (but don't teach Java, at least not for beginners).

    Who can recommend me a good book?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    I haven't searched for such a book, but I have looked at a lot of Java books and none of them pretend to teach an IDE to any significant depth while covering Java. Frankly, I don't think you'd want such a book. If you must have an Eclipse book, buy one that covers Eclipse AND buy (if you must) a good Java book.

    Eclipse is an open source project. While there may be excellent books on Eclipse, the Eclipse Wiki, online documentation, and forum are more reference than anyone should ever need.

    Learn Java, use an editor or IDE as a tool to learn Java, and if the editor or tool is getting in the way of learning Java, use another one you already know well.

    Thanks all! I've started learning Java using Notepad++ :-) .

    I will be using Eclipse in some time, though. The reason is that I want to do Android programming.

    Does anyone know of a good and recept Eclipse book? I've got a book by Daum (Professional Eclipse for Java developers), but the most recent edition is almost 10 years old...
