    Default Tip of the Month

    I was thinking of doing a "tip of the month" kind of thing to help people learn more about Java or anything related to Java.

    Anyone have any suggestions for topics they'd want to see covered? (note, I have a very weak background in web/server stuff, perhaps another member could cover these topics if they are willing)

    Some ideas that I've had so far:

    Using different features of the Eclipse IDE (like setting up project dependencies, source generation, auto-formatting, etc.)

    Little known features of Java (and some common ones)

    Algorithms / data structures

    How to use different classes in the standard Java SE API to accomplish a task (and possibly external libraries such as JOCL or JOGL)

    Getting started with Java

    A couple of ideas:

    - Writing Classes that use method chaining

    - Using build systems such as ANT, Maven2, Ivy etc.



    Might come up with some more later and maybe some web stuff.

    Definitely Debugging and more debugging.
    I wonder if any instructor ever spends any time on debugging. Is it a self learned skill?

    I like this idea a lot. We could setup a dedicated forum for it?
