> I have a dozen books on java, but no book specifically on best practices. What do you think. Will some thing short suffice.
I like "Effective Java" by Josh Bloch. This book is about
best practices down in the trenches: How to write good Java code
and what to avoid that would make it less good. It's not much
concerned with best practices at the Big Picture level -- system
design, data integrity and security, etc. -- but an excellent
resource at the let's-write-some-code level.
