"abin abin joy",

Please read your private messages regarding an important announcement.

Thank you,


Also, UseRealWords. When I read your subject I had no idea what "abt" meant. You should also UseCodeTags. I changed your post for you (also to fix the subject), and look how much better the code part looks.

As for your question, check out the JLS.

Finally, moving to the beginner's forum.
