Essentials of the JPL, Part 1

After completing this tutorial you should have a basic understanding of Java programming and how to use some of the more common application programming interfaces (APIs) available in the Java platform. You should also have a solid understanding of the similarities and differences between the three most common kinds of Java programs: applications, applets, and servlets.

Essentials of the Java Programming Language, Part 2, is now available. It covers sockets, threads, cryptography, building a more complex user interface, serialization, collections, internationalization, and Java Archive (JAR) files. It also presents object-oriented concepts as they relate to the examples in Part 1 and Part 2.

You can also explore programming in the Java language on your own with the help of the articles, training materials, other documents available on the Docs & Training page.
