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.
