    Default WinApp similar to MSDN for Java API

    Hi all,

    I hope most of you are familiar with Microsoft MSDN WinApp. I wonder there is similar application for which I can use to read the Java API while coding. At the moment what I am doing is attach the Java API offline version with NetBeans. It's not a big hassle to me, but keep it in a separate app like that quite easy. Sometimes it is really useful when I am answering on our forum.

    Thanks

    Never seen MSDN WinApp, but I have the Java SE / FX / ME offline APIs set as home pages in Google Chrome, which I keep open while coding or answering forum questions. You can use any browser for that, they all support multiple home pages / default pages nowadays.

    Yes db, I am doing the same when I was not connect to the web. Simply open my offline version and keep it side. But you know it bit of difficult to search the stuff right.

    I don't know. I use the index when I remember the method name but not which class it was in, and the package (top left pane) when I'm looking for something in a specific area of Java. And Google for anything else ;)
