This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
It is. Please change your name to conform to JavaRanch's policy. We ask that you use your first and last name in these forums so that the site maintains a professional appearance (i.e., the high signal-low noise content one expects when people post with their real names).

but it is not listed in Brodgen's Cram book. I was too hurry to ask the question, sorry. I could not modify the name in myprofile.
3.9 Keywords The following character sequences, formed from ASCII letters, are reserved for use as keywords and cannot be used as identifiers (�3.8): Keyword: one of abstract default if private this boolean do implements protected throw break double import public throws byte else instanceof return transient case extends int short try catch final interface static void char finally long strictfp volatile class float native super while const for new switch continue goto package synchronized The keywords const and goto are reserved, even though they are not currently used. This may allow a Java compiler to produce better error messages if these C++ keywords incorrectly appear in programs. While true and false might appear to be keywords, they are technically Boolean literals (�3.10.3). Similarly, while null might appear to be a keyword, it is technically the null literal (�3.10.7).
3.10.7 The Null Literal The null type has one value, the null reference, represented by the literal null, which is formed from ASCII characters. A null literal is always of the null type. NullLiteral: null
