Default I need help choosing the right book.

Hello,

I am very interested in purchasing this book, but I have found two different versions of this book; one of them is over 1,000 pages long and the other book contains 700 pages. Which one is the most updated version or maybe they are the same book just different covers?

These are the links from Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Java...8868742&sr=1-1
http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Java...509251-3449531

Thanks,
John.

The first link you list is definitely the newest edition and the one you want. It's been updated to show the current browsers (IE7/FireFox 2) and new JavaScript uses such as Ajax. It's shorter because some of the older reference appendixes were removed to keep the book a little smaller.
The 2nd link is for an older version of the book that you won't want.
