                   Java Sample Code

                       Yep, there's plenty o that here.
                       But before you start diggin holes all over the place we want to let you know that
                       JavaRanch isn't a script archive or code mill where ya go to grab code, fight with
                       it, and dump it into yer project without knowing what it does and how it works. Our
                       goal here is to try an guide greenhorns down the path to learnin how these darn
                       things work for themselves.




                       Most of our code is kept in the Code Barn
                       but that's not the only place where you'll find it.



                       Every so often, when the critters don't need tending and the fishin ain't all that good,
                       we release a new edition of the
                       JavaRanch Journal.
                       They say a code sample is worth a thousand words (or was that a picture?) but that don't
                       mean that there ain't no merit in spillin a thousand words if it helps you to understand
                       what something does before givin to ya.



                       Heck some concepts are just hard to understand, even with the code starin ya straight
                       in the face.  Sometimes it makes sense to light a fire, sit back, and have someone
                       explain it to ya in plain ol English; comparin it to simple things that ya already
                       know about.
                       So mozey on over to the Camp Fire
                       and see if it don't help to make those bits o code fall into place.



                       Still can't find what yer lookin fer, or still don't quite understand what that piece
                       of code does?  Well then, head on over to the
                       Saloon. That place is always full of people
                       you can ask.  There're lots of code samples there as well.



                         Shy about asking questions in a saloon? Not sure you know the best way to approach
                         folks with your question?  Well we've all been there. We even wrote a guide to
                         askin questions
there.  What if the question's been asked and answered lots
                         o times aleady? When that happens, someone usually takes a little time to put a new
                         entry in our Frequently Asked
                         Questions (FAQ)
section. Go over and take a look.



                       Some of the folks over there like talkin so much, we gave em their own
                       Radio Show.  
(sshhh, don't tell them this but... They ain't really on the radio. It's one o
                       those blog thingys but, either way, there are plenty o code samples there to
                       go along with what their talkin about)




                         Now we gave you the shovel and we just told you where to start diggin but you
                         say you've got a stagecoach to catch and don't have time to dig through all
                         those pages?  Well the FAQ page and the saloon both have them new fangled
                         search tools on em so you
                         could try using them and see if it don't get ya just what you're lookin fer.



                         Now you help yourself to as much as you like, it's all free.
                         We're just hoping you'll stick around a bit and maybe help out some of newer
                         greenhorns that might come wandering in. Now I'd love to hang around and jaw
                         with ya all day but I'm late fer my nap.



Thanks fer stopping by.
