takes the reader on a short tour of the main VE features, while
developing a small Swing-based application.
- The Visual Editor, covering both Swing/AWT and SWT

gallardo.org, version 2.0 launches...
http://www.gallardo.org received a complete face-lift in 2005 but has gone back to languishing... But it's
not just for looks. Features added were source code to
download, a wiki, and articles.
Eclipse in Action: A guide for the Java developer
they're saying about
Eclipse in Action:
by David Gallardo, Ed Burnette and Robert McGovern
"The technical information is dead on...I'd definitely
recommend this book to anyone."
"I've been using Eclipse for over a year now and can't
believe how much I was missing. Sure, I knew about Ant integration,
but the book explains why some of my scripts run fine in command
line and not from Eclipse. JUnit, CVS, log4j and Tomcat integration
are all detailed as well. Eclipse in Action shows you how to create
your own simple plug-ins, manage your coding activities and get the
most out of this way cool IDE."
"The book is in fact quite ambitious since it seems to want
to teach readers how to program, how to design and build software,
how to use the Eclipse IDE as well as how to use a number of open
source tools such as ANT, Log4J, JUnit, CVS, Tomcat, SWT and JFace
and even XML!...The surprise is that it pretty much achieves its
Java Oracle Database Development
Here's what they're saying about
Java Oracle Database Development:
by David Gallardo
"Being an Oracle developer and heavily into Java I loved this
book. It assumes nothing and starts out easily, explaining the
tools, database and a simple guide to tables and data types. It even
gives an overview of SQL and PL/SQL just in case. After that firm
foundation, just in case you needed it, it moves onto
object-relational and object features and an introduction to JDBC.
The progression in then to advanced JDBC and J2EE persistence,
followed by the use of Enterprise Java Beans and object-relational
mappings to Java Data Objects. All in all a very good book. Filled
with simple to understand examples and the output they generate,
which is always a good thing."
