    Default What tutorials to use?

    Hi,

    I am just starting to learn Java I am looking for tutorials. Of course there are official ones, but reading plain text can get boring after some time. So I found the New Boston (TheNewBoston – Free Educational Video Tutorials on Computer Programming and More!) tutorials. Do you guys had any experience with them or heard opinions about them?

    Maybe you can provide me with other useful resources suitable for newbies?

    Thanks :)

    Hi - I used the official online tutorials, combined with source code projects and the Java API. It is very useful to have API open whenever you code.

    A useful source code project is visual basic, vb, active server pages (ASP),java, c, c++, c__ , vbscript,active server pages, ASP, vbscript,SQL, database, informix, oracle, SQL Server,Perl, CGI,Delphi, PHP, LISP, Javascript,Free source code for the taking. Over five million lines o where you can simply select the language of your choice and browse through source codes for various applications. Gave me a very good understanding of OOP and how to approach any programming problem.

    and the Java API can be found at Java 2 Platform SE 5.0

    Hope this helps.

    Please don't link to the 5.0 API, it's outdated. You should be using the 6.0 API, available here: Java Platform SE 6

    The New Boston tutorials are good, but the ultimate is definitely the official java tutorials. If you want to see source code, try checking out the ones that are installed with the jdk. They are installed in C:/program files/java/jdk/src (or similar to that). Although it may be a bit overwhelming and over complicated for beginners. A good intro book may be helpful as ell. See my link in the sig below for some recommendations.

    There are a lot of java video tutorials.... although the video tutorials available for free download or download via torrents use an older version of java , but they do explain the concepts well.
    There are Dr.Java video tutorial..
    Core Java Video tutorial by VTC
    Advanced Java Video tutorials by VTC.... etc .. I have around 30GB of Java tutorials only but none of them cover the Java 6.0 they are only available till Java 5.0...but I think that is good enough.
    Some of the tutorials are very interesting to hear and some are pretty boring...(the way they explain).. reading a good Java book is much better than these tutorials.


    Ah.. and yes , TheNewBoston tutorials are very good too... although they do not cover java to the extent the VTC tutorials cover.

    Other Java tutorials include...
    Sun Microsystems- Java Training(it has 9CD's of Java training)
    MindQ- Java tutorials for developers (it has 18CD's of java tutorials)

    you could just google these and you could find them.
