Not exactly what you want but still a book for Mathematica 6...

Computer Simulations with Mathematica and Java
Wellin, Paul, Gayley, Todd

I also mentioned the book some time ago.
Note the comments I took...

"Annoyingly as usual, Springer has announced a book MANY months
the scheduled date of publication, and there's no guarantee the book
will actually appear by that date."
