Hi, is there any way to see the whole class hierarchy of java. Parent class sub class basis. The tree view provide by jdk doc is not a good way to see the class hierarchy bcz it divided by package.

Not that I am aware of. I'm not sure how useful such a graph would be as it would contain thousands of classes all inheriting from the same Object root node. You would need some pretty powerful graphing software to be able to make any sense of it. Remember when you view a class in javadoc you can see its inheritance tree at the top of the page, that all the information you need really.

Hello "Rony"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a JavaRanch Naming Policy for displayed (screen) names. Your displayed name must consist of a first name (or an initial), a space, and a family name (in that order) and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours "Rony", does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

Posters with nonconforming displayed names will be locked out of JavaRanch after a few posts using those names.

Thanks
-Barry

And your question is not specific to SCJD. Moving to Java in General (intermediate).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
