Page 123, Fifth Sentence

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


“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.
