ocjp 6 — Feeding a person with food is a great thing in this world. Feeding the same person by transferring the knowledge is far more better thing. The reason is the amount of satisfaction which we get through food is of only one minute or two. But the satisfaction which we can get through the knowledge is of life long.
Saral, you really should try to find answers to your questions in publicly available resources first. Firstly, you'll learn what you need much sooner than when you to wait for someone here to answer your questions, and secondly, you'll learn how to find, use and utilize the existing documentation. Though it may seem trivial, some practice is needed to search for (and orientate oneself in) available resources. If you plan to earn a living as a software developer, this skill is indispensable.
It is possible that some things are still unclear even after reading the documentation and a tutorial or two. In this case, we'll be very glad to help. You'd ideally post links to materials you've read and pointed out the unclear parts. Asking smart questions is not only beneficial to you, but also to other users here at Javaranch.
