    Java 1.2 and 2.5? Are you sure? The current version of Java is 7!

    Please read this: This Forum is for Saying Hi, not for Asking Technical Questions (READ BEFORE POSTING)

    The best place to start is Oracle's tutorials. They're the first thing that shows up when you google "java tutorials".
