Hello to everyone,

I have an idea and open this topic.

Let's write our Java questions that have come to our mind recently. Nobody, please, post an answer for further questions. Questions will help us to search and think more.

First Q is from me:

Q: Why should I use semicolon at the end of every statement?

Note: Please don't forget, I do not want answers. Write your questions only

What's the point? Can't you do the same thing by reading the forum and ignoring the responses?

Hi serab,
You done a great job.My initial question is,
Why java has the keywords goto and const while they are not in use?
What is the use of goto and const keywords in java?
Why don't oracle(sun) make it those keywords as deprecated?

Cheers Munees

* In C++ & in others, you should manage memory matter.
* In Java, you don't need to worry about memory management. cause: "Garbage collector" solves it.

Q: What does "memory management" mean?
Q: Memory management for supplying enough space for my Java?
Q: Memory management for making my application speedy?

Both. Flag is moving because air is moving.

There are plenty of sites and threads out there with answers. this is a very interesting thread to encourage you to think and look for answers. In this thread, visitors will know there are no answers and go looking for them. Does this count as an answer ;-)

My question: Why arent there more threads like this? No answers please ;-)

What's the point? Can't you do the same thing by reading the forum and ignoring the responses?

In addition, programmers have to be able to analyze and create solutions so that their programs will work. Obviously programmers can ask questions(of fellow programmers) but long term the ability to think clearly/logically and solve puzzles/conundrums is also necessary and critical.
