    Default For Newbies: Do you understand the Java API specification?

    Purpose of this poll is to understand the effects of posting links to the Java API specification when answering a post:

    Java Platform SE 6
    • I don't understand how to use it (I hate links to it)
    • I do understand it (great when there's a link to it)
    • I want to know how to understand & read it
    • Forget it... too difficult to understand

    EDIT: Multiple selection enabled !!!

    Thanks,
    CJSL

    Difficult? This is Mission Impossible, not Mission Difficult. Difficult should be easy.

    It does, gives me an understanding of the API's and how to use them.
    But I'm being fast tracked kind of helps with 40+ J2EE programmers sitting around me :)

    Thanks Chris for starting such a nice thread. :)

    And also I don't think lots of experienced members can be confused on this too ;) Anyway I don't want to comment on this thread.

    Suggestion: Multiple options allowed here Chris.
