What's a "java doc" or "java document"? Do you mean a file with extension .java, better known as a Java source code file? If so, you'll need to know the Java language before you can understand any of it.

Just be aware that most APIs on that site are rather outdated - looks like they stopped updating it 2 or 3 years ago.

For the standard Sun JVM the link I provided is faster to use.

Or it used to be... Since they moved it to Oracle's servers the API pages tend to be very slow now and then. That's why it's a good idea to download the Javadoc pages and copy them to your local hard drive. Should the online pages give problems you can still browse your local copy.

Rob,

Thanks for noting that. I have noticed this from time to time but never associated it with being placed under the oracle umbrella.

And just having them on your workstation makes it much more convient (as well as letting you place the version of the API with java version you are working with at the time.

It's still faster; even on Oracle, you can go straight to a class which you can't on jdocs.
