Java is a platform independent and strong object-oriented programming
language, conceived at Sun Microsystems. Learning Java is not a one-step
process and may require you several months of rigorous coding practices
to master it.
You, mainly use it to create the applications (and applets or software
components) that are to be deployed on to the Web (or more precisely Web
servers). But this doesn't mean that Java is used for this purpose
alone. In fact, after getting used to the Java programming and its
internals you can create your own Apache or Yahoo! Chat Server.
No other, than the creator can describer you a product. Sun Microsystems' site http://java.sun.com is the best place to start learning the Java programming language. However, I recently came across a wonderful Java tutorial on the Net. You can download and use it to learn this wonderful programming language. Entire tutorial has been divided into 19 chapters carefully categorized under three parts. Tutorial contents are as follows,
