Maybe, one could learn the Java keywords with a poem (old trick). I invented this. It's very silly. Anyways, are there any ideas?
Abstract boolean, break the byte!
(break the scheme)
Case and catch and "char" with class!
(have your own style)
Const continue, default do.
(don't be like the others)
"double else" extendS final
(thinking twice make things harder (?))
(remember to pronounce the S here)
Finally, float for goto
if implementS import
(if you need a strong programming implement, rebel and try "goto" (this is ironic,of course. Pronounce the S here, don't forget))
instance of int: interface
(talks for itself)
Long native? New package!
(Change old traditions for new technologies)
(now it comes the superhero saga part)
"Private Protected Public" return!!
(in part I, Private Java protected the public classes city. Now, the saga continues)
Short, static, strictfp
(a description of his braveness fp: firm precission (?) )
super switch synchronized this
throw, throws transient
try "void, volatile" while assert
(He can dissapear)
What do you think? No... please don't tell the truth.
Have a nice day,
