Resources for learning Java
- No links to your stackoverflow questions - we are not a second opinion to stackoverflow, nor are you going to get answers here when you didn't get satisfying ones there.
- No promises of rewards of any kind!
- Help on how to post code
- Do not reply with complete solutions, rather comment explanations and guides. Comments with solutions will be removed and commenters will automatically be banned for a week.
- No PM help requests. Either ask your questions here and show your code, or you're out of luck. PM help requests will be removed without warning.
- Code posting
- No screenshots of code!
- Do not submit executable jar or compressed (zip, rar, 7z, etc.) files!
- For small bits of code (less than 50 lines in total, single classes only), the default code formatter is fine (one blank line, then 4 spaces before each line).
- Redditlint is a quick and simple code formatter for reddit code. Copy your code into Redditlint, click
Format + Copy, and paste the code in your post (remember to leave an empty line above the code!).
- Pastebin for programs that consist of a single class only
- Gist for multi-class programs, or programs that require additional files
- Github or Bitbucket repositories are also perfectly fine as are other dedicated source code hosting sites.
- Ideone for executable code snippets that use only the console
- Google Drive, Dropbox, Mediafire, etc. are not suitable for code posting!
