Do you have a Java Development Kit (JDK) installed and running? That is, have you successfully compiled and run a "Hello World" program yet?

not a good idea i would say ... it's a reference actually ... even i read it when i began but felt immense need to learn from other sources ... the book is for those who already are ace in java.
