I would like to know whether true, false and null are keywords.
As per http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/html/3.doc.html#229308,
(which is a sunsite), these three words are not listed as keywords..

According to Brogden's "Java 2 Sun Certified Java Programmer" exam prep true, false & null are java reserved words. It classifies them as special literal values but they're listed in the same table with all the other java keywords.

They are reserved words, but not keywords.

Hi!
So finally what is to be done when we are asked to select keywords from a list?
1. http://enthuware.com/jqplus/FAJQuestions.html
says that even though they are not keywords we should select them!!
2.RHE says they are keywords.
3.SUN site does not.
4.Khalid Mughal says they are reserved literals!!
I am really confused!!
