    Default looking for a java book

    Hello,

    I was in a book shop a few months ago and seen a good java book.
    The problem is that I can't remember the name of the book.

    The only distinguishing thing I can remember about the book is that in the opening capter it talked about a java game called runescape. And also provided a screenshot of the game.

    Does anyone happen to know the name of the book?

    You can't visit that book shop again?

    Actually if you are a beginner to Java, my suggestion is start with the basis. Suns' official tutorial is the most suitable one I guess.

    Must be java for dummies and you thought it as game. Just kidding really I don't think some one can really tell the exact boos name if you can then just re visit the store or check their website if they have one or may be call and get info about it.
