I was really looking forward to getting this book as I am new to BD J. I have a background in Java desktop and server-side but this BD business is another thing entirely. With that said I have relied heavily on the hdcookbook site and the [...] forums. I thought this book would be the perfect tie in to all the info out there. It is not, sorry to say.

I say the book is not a programming book because well I have tons of programming books and well you can't compare this to like any of the O'Reilly books. Yes, there are 'snippets' of code and LOTS of explanation on HIGH level workings. But if you are a programmer and trying to get something to compile and run in a BD J environment then this is not going to help you much. I was at the very least expecting a walk thru on how to setup the BDJ environment on Eclipse or Netbeans or some IDE. NO mention of how to create the infamouse bd-stubs in here either but if your looking for that here is the site, [...]. I guess at the time of publishing it was still very new so they didn't have a lot of info.

I'm just really disappointed because for such a pricey book I thought I'd at least have more of a clue on how to start compiling something, anything... And most of what I have so far I didn't get from the book, I got from various sources online. If your getting started do check out the forums and search for others who have started, some list their steps. This was the best help and advice I can give. If you have the money to spend then get the book it offers some info but I would rather just wait for the next edition if I had a do-over. As the HD section is pointless to me as I'm strictly working in/for BD J, and the BD J info here is not anything you can't get from forums or the hdcookbook site.

I don't give it a lower score because well there was no info at that time and I'm sure at the time of publishing this book did provide some great insight. This area really needs a new, updated book bad!

It will give you a better understanding of what is in the packages you download from the net - again the disk in here is outdated so you end up going back to the web. So in general sorry to say but don't count on it helping you setup your environment or get you up to a running / compiling state.

I flipped over the HD DVD portion rather quickly because most of it is no longer applicable but found the BDJ portion very informative. Unlike the Blu Ray Demystified book which presents the topic from a very high level, this book provides you with a project you can build and code examples are presented throughout the BDJ portion. It should be noted that anyone about to crack this book open needs to have a good bit of Java experience/Object Oriented experience as well as Java 2D and AWT experience. The book does a great job at explaining (with code examples) how these tools can be used within player constraints to create the best solution. The information on the GRIN animation framework is worth the cost of the book alone. It gives you an extensible, flexible, stable animation framework provides you with a great starting point to providing a custom animation solution that works smoothly with other BD operations. I also found the section on player benchmarking very important as well. This is often overlooked by people with little Java/and or software experience because they haven't worked with many different platforms/configurations/languages or they read Java's "Write once, run anywhere" and think it will work flawlessly for BDJ. The JVMs are different on lots of players and cheaper BD players means cheaper graphics processing etc. The increased complexity of a formal software language running on a disc playing a movie should mean that testing methods should also greatly increase. This book presents this information very well. For those of you who have found the online HD Cookbook helpful, I strongly suggest getting a copy of this book.

The first part of this book is focused on programming the HD-DVD, and it is pretty good since programming for that standard is pretty solid at this point. The second part of the book is about BD-J, which is the application programming environment that supports Blu-ray systems. Java will provide the interactive capabilities of Blu-ray, and will thus ship with all Blu-ray devices. BD-J is related to J2ME (Java Micro Edition), and also to the old Java TV standard that has never really taken off. This book was published very early on in the standard's life and is very vague because, quite frankly, the standard has been and still is vague and hard to get a good handle on at this point. Right now Sony, although learning, is handling the software development end of Blue-Ray quite badly. To get into the BD-J developer game right now, Sony's answer seems to be to either spend multiples of tens of thousands on a copy of Scenarist BD Edition and on the CineForm HD encoder, or move to LA and hope that one of the major studios will hire you.

This kind of lack of transparency is what sunk the development of applications for the Apple computer back in the 80's, thus if you are interested in learning how to develop software for Blue-ray, at this point I would say wait awhile. This book or anything out there just doesn't have the details to help you learn to write complete applications for Blue-ray right now. The following is the table of contents for the book:
