As I noted in the first edition, Java continues to be a moving target, so these case studies cannot be guaranteed to run on all platforms. I will try to note when and where changes are requied for various systems. Readers can help in this effort by sending me detailed descriptions of how code was changed to work on various systems.

Write once, run anywhere continues to be an illusive dream. Not only does the Java language keep changing, but there are still minor but annoying differences between Platforms, particularly between the PC world (read Microsoft) and the rest of the universe.
My main development platform is a Sun Ultra workstation. Next to it on my desk is a Mac G3. I've tried to make all my example programs run on both of these systems. I don't generally have access to a PC, so rely on comments from readers to let me know what changes have to be made to accomodate that platform.
I am currently working on rewriting my example programs to use Swing, and am evaluating what other new Java features to include in future versions of the book. Comments are welcome.
