starting out with this book . i can easily say java 5 is downloadable but acquiring api documentation is a pain in ass . i know there's a online viewer but what happens if the link goes under . also i've searched here to a related topic stating java 6 is no different . the reason why i want to learn java as a newbie cause i wanna code for uscript unreal engine 1 . am i in the right direction . thank you .

You need to learn the basic concepts, object-orientation, syntax, etc. The changes between Java5 and Java7 will not affect that. The server for the API is usually reliable, but you can download the documentation as a zip file. Unfortunately I can't remember where you find it. Sorry.
Don't know where you get the uscript code from.

And welcome to the Ranch

At this stage you are better off with text editors (not MS Notepad) rather than IDEs like NetBeans. Otherwise you expend all your effort learning NetBeans.

And around which corner? Please tell us if the discussion appears on several fora, and tell the people on the other forum, too.

You're welcome

It wasn't you the "unrelated post" comment was directed to.
