The official Java magazine from Oracle has received a new look in the form of switching from a heavy PDF based production to a more responsive single page HTML publication. This is fantastic news for the many mobile readers from both a data usage and presentation perspective.

As per their issue archives page, it seems they have converted the last few issues to HTML while other issues are still available as a PDF download.

Historically, magazines have provided an opportunity to expose the reader to new topics which they might not have otherwise found by covering a wide range of articles focused around a central topic. In the past, I’ve found Java Magazine has provided a casual introduction to a number of new ideas and concepts and a worthy revisitation of old ones.

With its new monthly publishing schedule it’s certainly one to add to the bookmarks.
