Experts,

I am in the process of learning the java programming language.

I have been through the first two trails on the sun website and am quite comfortable with the language discussed (as i studied C++ a number of years ago). However, i feel to bolster this it would be useful to do some extensive examples to further my understanding.  The Sun site is good but seems to skim each topic.  Can anyone recommend a useful, begininner friendly site that has multiple examples / exercises on (Classes / Objects / Interfaces / Packages / Generic).

I feel its probably best to get a sound understanding before moving on.

Best regards
Easynow

If you are willing to spend some money I would recommend the excellent book "Java, how to program" by Deitel & Deitel (I think it is in it's fourth edition currently). It covers Java from the very basic to the very advanced subjects and it is well written with thorough examples and source code.

girionis, its 6th, last time I checked,

4th was the yellow one right? its missing JDBC, which came in a purple addition. (I got that, its like 5 years ago now...)

and YES, that is an excellent book....

just take the examples, and type it in. so you can learn the syntax.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

also,

just go to google.ca

and type in Java Tutorial.

many results will show up to teach you basic Java.

for example

public class haha{
   public haha(){
       System.out.println("HeLLO!!! NURSE!!");
   }
   public static void main(String args[]){
       haha ha = new haha();
   }
}
