If there was any it would be listed on the page, since there isn't then there is no code to download.

Unfortunately that book doen't provide any code. I pend myelf some time to find it whn I was reading it, but it just doen't exist. I hjave to admit that the book doesn't provide any working example out of the box: it explains several concepts of OOP, illustrating best tecniques and practices and describing good design patterns, so providing source code wouldn't make sense. The most important thing reading the book is to learn the principle of a good OOP style more than build some class one can ue in the real world.

Zandstra's books are advanced, theoretical and about design more than about code examples.  They more or less assume that you already know how to code, so they teach the design and leave the coding to the reader.

Excellent book, BTW.

Good grief!  If you don't like the edition you have, buy a newer edition.  I have an older edition of Zandstra, and it never occurred to me that I would find a code companion.  But if you have found one, by all means buy it and enjoy it.

May seem like a crazy idea but try emailing them and they may email you back the samples.
Or ask them if there is any differences between the 3rd and 4th edition samples (probably nothing bar small changes that would take a second or two to correct)

Me too I have an older edition! Anyway, it seems that they have thought to add source code in later editions: the only place where you can find is where Apress itself suggests to look: in older edition there are not source code to download, o it just doesn't exist. I'm sorry

Anyway, I think you really don't need it.
