I took a course based on the Java version, and it felt very clunky to me - the sample project code was very verbose and used the Visitor pattern whenever it could possibly be wedged in, making it a bit of a nightmare to understand the flow of the code as a whole. A good IDE would probably clear up a lot of this confusion, but it always felt like we were fighting the language. Take this with a grain of salt, however, since I'm fairly certain my professor edited the projects quite a bit before handing them to the students; perhaps the original book material is less convoluted.
