I just discovered this site yesterday (actually a friend directed me here).

I am seeking a list that explains all the differences between the various "prints" Double/double (all the primitives) extends/implements etc.

It seems there should be a list for all of these things that explains the language and the meaning/purpose of everything.

THe closest example I can provide is our dictionaries. It is a collection of words and their definitions.

Is there anything like that in existence? If I don't understand what a Calabi-Yau is I can pick-up the OED and most likely I will find it's definition.

Ideas? Suggestions?

Try the JavaBeginnersFaq. It will point you in the direction of various tutorials.

The two most important "go to" references are probably the API documentation and The Java Language Specification.

Are these what you're looking for?
