This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
I just got back from Borders, looking for a Java book to learn from. I long time Java programmer I know recommended "Learn Java in 24 hours (or maybe it was 21 days)". I saw both books but they said Java 2, not just Java. Is there a difference between the two or what? ------------------ I'm newbie to Java, give me a break. AIM: Fool1515 Email: Fool1515@mediaone.net
Sun's numbering convention is confusing. Java 2 is the name for the current Java Platform.It covers all versions of the JDK (Java Development Kit) from v1.2 onwards. Versions of the the JDK prior to 1.2 (ie 1.0 and 1.1) are not Java 2. Java 2 includes many new classes and language changes. Cheers, Martin

Well I picked up "Teach Yourself Java 2 in 21 Days" today. Great layout and easy read. I've done the first day and can't wait until tommorrow (trying to pace myself, I am a full time college student). I also created my first program. It's SO much easier than C/C++. The syntax is more logical. ------------------ I'm newbie to Java, give me a break. AIM: Fool1515 Email: Fool1515@mediaone.net
