    I'm looking for recommendation on advanced books for Java.
    I'm programming in the language for over a year now, so I don't need
    basic tutorials, but advanced topics in Java (not GUI).

    Thanks

    go visit the O"Reilly site. They specialise in advanced books on
    narrow topics.

    Could you be a bit more specific about the topic, there are many
    excellent books out there but to list them all would be quite tedious.
    Some suggestions about topics: java technology books, enterprise java,
    architecture, patterns, server programming, web, programming techniques etc.

    Here are some good examples for pure advanced programming/design.

    - Head First Design Patterns. Freeman and Freeman
    - Better, Faster, Lighter Java. Justin Gehtland, Bruce A. Tate
    - Effective Java™: Programming Language Guide. Joshua Bloch
    - Bitter Java. Bruce Tate
    - Java design : building better apps and applets. Peter Coad and
    Mark Mayfield
    - Refactoring. Maritin Fowler
    - Anti Patterns. William H. Brown. Raphael C. Malveau. et.al

    And some other/enterprise java:

    - Concurrent programming in java. Doug Lea
    - POJOs in Action: Lightweight Frameworks for Enterprise Applications.
    Chris Richardson
    - Server-based Java Programming. Ted Neward
    - Effective Enterprise Java. Ted Neward

    Hi Yuval,

    Presumably you want to move from Programmer to Developer mode. My
    recommedation would be start checking out books on Design Patterns.
    Following probably is the best book on Design Patterns.

    * Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software - by
    Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson, John Vlissides

    * Head First Design Patterns by Elisabeth Freeman, Eric Freeman, Bert
    Bates and Kathy Sierra

    Also you may want to pursue other elements of becoming a true Java
    Developer ... that is understanding your tools ... so check out books
    on Eclipse, Poseidon, Ant, Clearcase etc ...

    Hope this helps!

    OReilly books are usually very good. Javalobby recently had a reader's poll on
    the best books ...
