Hello All/Ranch Forum Team,

Greetings !!

I am a new member of this forum. From morning I was going through the posts on this JAVA beginner forum. I found it pretty good, understanding vice and information vice. I have heard a lot about this Ranch forum from seniors. Hope I will be able to contribute/learn(specially). Let me introduce myself a bit I am a UNIX (automation and shell scripting) person. I had passion from college days for learning JAVA. Some days back I got a project to work where I got a pulse of JAVA to work a bit. So I started searching about best forums of it so that I can learn from them(After it's result I joined this forum). I am a kind of new person in JAVA as I have read it in college days. I have started it learning basic things now by surfing. Could experts/members please suggest/advice me how to grow into it. I really want to be good in basics first and then want to go for advance. I will be really grateful to you for guiding me in same.

Thanks in advance, happy daily learning all.


Thanks,
R. Singh

Hi,

Immediate way could be to start go through the Oracle's Java Tutorials (<- link).

Herbert Schildt's Java A Beginner's Guide 6th edition is a good book if you are looking for one. Almost all of the book is done at the command line and I think it giving me a solid understanding of the basics of Java.

I quite forgot: we have books pages: start here. The best beginners' book may still be Sierra and Bates' Head First Java 2/e, even though it is ten years old. At least you can buy second‑hand copies for a reasonable price.

Java, not JAVA. It's not an acronym.

One advice, learn theory first then code. Divide your time between theory and coding.
Java structure coding follows a different path then c/c++. This site will help you get you know java well https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/

Java's basic concepts lie on PARAMETERS, ARGUMENTS, CONSTRUCTORS, OBJECT ARGUMENTS AND METHOD ARGUMENTS.

Hello,
I am new too.
but trust me this is the best forum. Sometimes even the authors of great book will resolve your query too.
I found this very impressive and the way they help you understand the concepts.
