Hello,

I'm interested in some book suggestions on java gui development apis awt/swt/swing. And then I also need some book suggestions on jdbc.

I'm not really interested in Tutorial/Beginner type books. I'm more interested in something I can keep on my desk as a reference, but that also does give some explanations, and tips concerning the various apis.

Secondly, I prefer newer books. When searching I found many books that people recommended but were from like 1999, 2001. I would prefer books using the latest apis.

Lastly, I prefer books that are somewhat well known and generally liked by many.

So if anyone could suggest some books on gui/jdbc that would be wonderful, also if you prefer I wouldn't mind a link to some current material that details recommended books.

Also, I found Java in a Nutshell to be a great book, so if that gives you some insight into kind of what I'm looking for...

Thanks, I look forward to your responses. I will split the points for any answers that meet my criteria.
