Update of the Java Tutorial
By Sharon Zakhour on Oct 20, 2010
This update includes:
- The new Fork/Join page, part of the Concurrency lesson, describes how you can use the Fork/Join framework to take advantage of multiple processors. This feature is available now in the JDK 7 release available on java.net.
- The JDBC Basics lesson has been completely revamped, including updated sample code that you can download, compile, and run – the code has been configured for Java DB and MySQL. See Getting Started for more information. Note that the rest of the JDBC tutorial is also being updated, so look for that in a future release.
- Finally, a small, but notable, change is that the standalone JNDI tutorial, previously available on java.sun.com, has been moved to the Java SE documentation archive on download.oracle.com and many broken links in the tutorial have been fixed. The front page of the JNDI tutorial has been modified accordingly, and redirects are in place ensuring a seamless transition.
I know that many folks have been frustrated by the lack of a downloadable tutorial for the last several months. Rest assured we are working on it and hope to have a version available soon. We do apologize for the delay and are committed to providing a downloadable tutorial once again.
