I would request the founders of Javaranch to start a section on this site called "Java Rule Book" which has in simplified language and with examples all those complicated rules that exist in the JLS. We often come across such rules in this forum. Would it not be better for everyone to be contributing to a single place? I would like to know what others feel.
Thank you.

Offhand I doubt we'd make a separate forum or page for it. Most discussion is distributed thoughout the Java in General forums, whenever it comes up while discussing other specific topics. It would be difficult to get everyone to post this material in the same place. But you may want to look at the book Java Rules, reviewed here. It's effectively a companion guide to the JLS.

If we had a wiki running, it would likely develop into an FAQ, parts of which addressed explaining parts of the JLS.

True, this does sound like something a Wiki would be well-suited for.

What be a 'wiki' ?
I once had the hicciups so bad I couldn't ride. So, my saddle pardner made a travois and hauled me to the nearest wickiup, wigwam or teepee. Now, the mere thought of teepee should cure the hicciups, make your wigwam and get your wickiup.

For an example of A wiki see Ward's wiki. Click on the "People, projects and patterns link. BTW, wiki refers to the software, not the content of the board.
