Hi Shiraz,
Have you tried writing any code for IO ? IO as such is a pretty confusing topic. I found that writing simple code to manipulate files helped. I tried doing this to write textual files and primitive data. Often had to look up the APIs while doing this and it helped me understand it better and remember the key classes and constructors. Just started this exercise and I am still working through it.
Regards
Sajida

Thanks Sajida,
This is one of the two topics (Threads being the other) that I am not able to write small programs for. There are no programs explained either. Can you suggest any good sites where I can learn them from. Effort to learn, not a problem. I need some real clearcut explaination for these chapters.
Regards,
Shiraz

Hi Shiraz,
For starters, you could look at Sun's online tutorial. It has simple programs for both threads and IO which will help you understand the basics. Once you do that, you can take a particular class and play around with it by looking at the API and calling its methods. Trying it out yourself is the best way to learn.
Bruce Eckels book "Thinking in Java" is a free downloadable book available at www.bruceeckel.com. It has comprehensive code examples and explanations.
Happy coding and learning!
Sajida

i know what you mean shiraz,
seems like each java book i have takes a different tack
on this subject. at the moment, i'm most happy with
horstmann's core java vol.1.

Thanks Sajida and John,
Thanks a lot for the advice. Will make it a point to refer to both the sun tutorials and Bruce Eckel.
I think John got exactly what I intended to get across. Will also look up the book John suggested.
Regards,
Shiraz
