    The link is broken for quite a while now. Peter has most likely lost
    interest in maintaining it, or Sun no longer wants to provide the space
    to host it.

    Roedy Green is in contact with Peter regarding some other issues. Maybe
    Roedy can ask him what is going on (I know, I suggested that before).

    Just a suggestion... when posting a link to an article on Google, you
    should select "View this article only" from the thread view, and then
    remove attributes other than "selm". The resulting URL in this case is:

    > http://groups.google.com.au/groups?selm=4svxxgkdpuz2.puexle31s8xp$


    Much easier to manage, IMHO (with an unusually honest H).

    His book Just Java is due out in a week in time for JavaOne. He has
    not responded to my inquiries about the FAQ.

    The book should be great. I gave Peter hundreds of suggestions to
    improve it, and he says he is implementing nearly all of them.

    I gather the book pretty is much the same as his old one with new
    chapters on enum and generics where I pounded him to make sure it was
    accessible to the beginner.


    It is works by simple examples, gradually adding complexities. It
    does not cover everything, but certainly enough to get you well
    started.

    At least *I* understood it.
