This book I'm using continually says I should download the java API from Sun and not rely on reading it online. But I can't find where you download it. I go round and round on Sun's site and I always come back to http://java.sun.com/javase/reference/api.jsp, which has the API, but as far as I can see you can only view the api online. I can find no provision to download it. What am I missing?

What's wrong with reading the API online?

Not everybody is online all the time. I keep the javadocs for all Java APIs I might need available locally; it's also a lot faster to access.

Likewise. I even have a copy on a USB stick which is always in my coat pocket.

Well, actually, I have the whole of the API documentation somewhere on my hard drive too . . .
