    Default A Java reference source for a quick look

    Hi,

    I am looking for a Java reference source (a link or an e-book) for a quick look when writing a code and can't remember (or don't know) i.e. how does an operator look like, how is a loop structure, which Array list methods I can use, etc., etc.

    I have got some references but there is often a problem to find a banal thing quickly.

    I would appreciate any suggestion.

    Thank you very much
    T.

    Use the java API and google on 'java tutorial' ...
    I die a little on the inside...
    Every time I get shot.

    I've downloaded the API doc and the Tutorial in zip format and unzipped it to local disk. I bookmarked my browser to the places I like to start reading.
    I've also modified the search html file to search my local files so I can search only the Tutorial (for example) on my PC for terms, classes, methods etc.

    I do this similarly, I've been just thinking of to have something comprehensive with well structured contents in one spot .

    Thanks a lot.

    Let us know if you find something more comprehensive than Sun's doc. Or better structured.
    Not sure what "one spot" means?

    I didn't mean it. As for a beginner the Sun's doc has seemed to me too complex. I will have to learn to use it.

    Got it. Sun's "The Really Big Index" - I didn't notice it before.
    Thank you.
