2001)? Neither have been rated at Amazon.

Yes, it will be out this month, as a matter of fact. And it's so much
better, I just can't look at the first edition anymore. Seriously, I learned
so much writing v. 1, that I was able to actually apply it all to v.2 (which
by the way covers JDOM beta 7; no UnrealisticException thingy this time
around!). I highly recommend it, since I rewrote completely about 60% of the
book, and added 5 new chapters ;-)

As for my wife, that entirely depends on how many of you buy the book... she
wants a pool these days, so I need many of you to help ;-) (Just kidding

> And when is Hunter & McLaughlin, "Learning JDOM" (O'Reilly) coming out???
Surely if they have enough time to read and  post to this list, they could
pump out a manual! ;-)

Actually, there is talk of that going on. Stay tuned.
