Another significant change for this edition is to drop coverage of the JDK in favor of NetBeans, the free, integrated IDE for Java. NetBeans works on Windows, Linux and Mac; is free and open source; and has become a solid IDE. A new appendix walks readers through the process of installing NetBeans and creating a sample application.
