JD1's Personal Development Blog

Over the next year, I plan on learning as much about the Java programming language as possible. I'll be blogging posts I create at http://javadevelopmentforums.com/ here to keep you all updated on my progress.

  1. The While Loop

    The While Loop is an excellent way of outputting data until reaching a specific point. It's used by running instructions until a condition is no longer true. Basically, it's going to keep running the same set of instructions until the specified condition is modified so as to be false, to reiterate. Sometimes, While Loops can create infinite loops. Usually, While Loops have an instruction at the end of the instruction set which modifies (usually increments) a counter variable being used in the condition ...
  2. The Switch Statement

    Hello everyone,

    As posted in my introduction, I'm going to do my best to learn as much as possible about the Java programming language over the next year (and afterwards, of course).

    To help me cement some of the new found knowledge I'm receiving via tutorials and guides, I've decided to keep this blog as my personal location for posting what I'm learning about, any questions I might have, and code snippets I'm working with.

    I'm all for assistance - that's ...
