The 2nd edition of "Heads up Java" casually tells me to go back to java.sun.com to download the J2SE API documentation.
I believe there is an inherent assumption in that instruction which is this -- the download site for that particular documentation should be easy to identify.
But I go to java.sun.com, and there are a million acronyms which I don't understand, and I have no idea where this documentation resides and couldn't identify it if I was looking at it.
the primary focus of the book is to make Java easy to understand. And then, before I get to Chapter 1, I'm lost. I conclude it must be me...
Can you give me some help in emerging from my clueless position, and moving towards the understanding that other people seem to find so natural?
Help get this topic noticed by sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, or email.
Since the book was written Sun has be purchased by Oracle they have radically overhauled the website and it is now ... how shall I put it, completely impenetrable. http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.5... is the online version of the API docs being refereed too. The latest API docs can also be downloaded on to your computer from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/jav...
Sorry for the confusion, hope that helps?
