This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
When in doubt, check the API. Not only will it help you become to have a better understanding of Java but going through the API yourself is definitely faster than waiting for responses on a forum (even if the Ranch has incredibly fast responses!). Good luck to you!
