    Default JAVA resource(s)

    Greetings,

    Is there a resource (web-based I guess, I'm certain there are probably books that have what I want) where I can look up what JAVA commands do?

    Meaning - I am going through various tutorials and would like to look up the commands within the tutorial and how to use the command correctly.

    For example, I have a tutorial showing some simple XML stuff, how can I look up (in a library search engine format) what:

    DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
    DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
    Document doc = db.parse(file);getElementsByTagName

    and

    getElementsByTagName
    do?

    I see the tutorial does but I have no idea what each line "does"

    I have printed out a couple of tutorials and would like to make notes out beside each line as to what the commands are doing.

    Thanks for the help as I go through this process.

    -Sparky

    Look into the Java API Doc ?

    Use google : java DocumentBuilder and so on or use search engines like Java SE JDK 6 API Search

    You realize all IDEs do this when you hit the '.' right? You get a popup of all the constructors, methods, and fields in the class, along with a description of the parameters used. I suggest NetBeans or Eclipse.

    Download the offline package and attach with the IDE. Most of the IDEs nowadays supporting that.

    With NetBeans it's easy. Once attach the Java DOC with a simple key combination you can see the relevant document.
