Online documentation

Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java Contents | Prev | Next

The Java language and libraries from Sun Microsystems (a free download) come with documentation in electronic form, readable using a Web browser, and virtually every third party implementation of Java has this or an equivalent documentation system. Almost all the books published on Java have duplicated this documentation. So you either already have it or you can download it, and unless necessary, this book will not repeat that documentation because it’s usually much faster if you find the class descriptions with your Web browser than if you look them up in a book. (Plus it will be up-to-date.) This book will provide extra descriptions of the classes only when it’s necessary to supplement the documentation so you can understand a particular example.
