Java;Notes - 3.) Installing Library Source and Documentation: Making a house a Home


There are a few more things we need to do in order to get started with Java. We have our house bought for and we are all moved in the house is livable and so on now its time to add those touches that make our house a home! Note all of the following can be done through the GUI so this is the GUI version of the instructions which are simple to work with:

  1. Download the following Files:
    1. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/documentation/java-se-7-doc-download-435117.html   <---Java Documents
    2. http://horstmann.com/corejava/corejava9.zip <-- CoreJava7 Book Code Examples.
    3. The third ZIP is Located in the JDK folder mentioned before (Located here: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_17\) as "src.zip"
  2. Unzip all three files to the desktop and copy paste the files to the C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_17\ directory 

Doing this will enable you to keep all the Java docs and example code in one place! :D

Side Notes:
  • You will by the time you get this far on this page have a local copy of the documents for Java 7 you can find them here: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Java/jdk1.7.0_17/docs/docs/index.html Just open this in your web browser. It is suggested you book mark this and keep it handy as it will be useful! This is a local file so you dont need to use the web to access it! :D
