Page 123, Fifth Sentence

We’ve been tagged for a meme by James @ Big Dumb Object. This is my entry.

INSTRUCTIONS:

“To participate, you grab any book, go to page 123, find the fifth sentence, and blog it. Then tag five people.”

The following is the 5th complete sentence from O’Reilly’s Java in a Nutshell, 3rd Ed.:

The two hierarchies are entirely distinct from each other; it is important that you do not confuse them.

Great advice, in my opinion. I don’t know how many times said confusion has landed me in trouble in my youth. Damn hierarchies.

I tag:

Yeah, like these people have nothing better to do.

  1. In the 4th edition of Java in a Nutshell, pg 123 line 5 has changed to “Interfaces can be defined as static members of classes.”

    Solved a lot of curiosity with that one, eh?

  2. The 5th edition has been out for some time. I wonder what nugget it offers?

  3. Computer books : source of all wisdom.
