Welcome to the Java Tutorial, a learning project of the Java Center! In this tutorial, you will learn all of the fundamentals of Java programming through examples and step-by-step explanations! This tutorial is designed for beginning programmers and programmers of a different language alike. A list of contributors to this tutorial can be found at bottom of the page.
How to useEdit
All of the lessons can be found on the bottom of the page. Each page should have a discussion page if anyone has a specific question on the topic covered in the lesson. General questions/comments should be left in this discussion page.
Note: Since this tutorial has just begun, I apologize as some things may be vague and cluttered. If anyone wishes to proofread what I have written and correct any errors of any kind, it will be much appreciated.

The following list of learning trails is almost identical to the trails found in the Sun Microsystems/Oracle Java Tutorial.[R 1] The trails can be used to offer different learning trails towards more specific learning goals. In order to improve on the original Java Tutorial the trails should specify preconditions, learning objectives and further reading. Further trails can be added as required, there is no need to follow the structure of the original Java Tutorial. Trails can also link to the Wikibook Java Programming.[R 2]
These Java projects are designed for you to practice the skills you learn from the lessons found in this tutorial. Links to appropriate projects can be found in lessons as you read for your convenience.
