FAQ 2d Updated: 1/7/00 >>>>>> Where else can I get help? ================================= The biggest help anyone needs is learning the Java classes. There are hundreds of them, and thousands of functions and attributes attached to each. 1) Open up your JDK (see FAQ_1b) and search for the specific class you are interested in. Open it up and look at the functions and values available. Here is Graphics.java straight out of JDK1.1.8. Looking through it you will see a number of useful functions like fillRect(), drawString(), lineTo(), setColor(), etcetera. 2) Buy a book. If you have the $100 or so, you can get the 'Java Class Libraries'. These are very good reference works. If you are still learning or can only afford $40, look for a tutorial book such as 'Learn Java in 21 days'. A good tutorial will tell you all the stuff I have in these FAQs then move on to much more useful information. 3) Javasoft Developer Connection. This is where I go when I have a problem to solve. They have forums with thousands of messages. I usually find someone has already asked my question and been answered. 4) DevCentral provides a number of developer resources. Elden recommends their tutorials.
