    Default Every java programming reading material?

    hey all,

    does there exist a location where i can learn everything there is to learn about java?

    i want to learn everything. youtube videos and google searching java only gives snippets of info which is no good. online courses are terrible because they're similar too. i want encyclopedias worth of knowledge if that's possible.

    i like to learn as much as i can, "data..data..data" as they say.

    anyone help me out?!

    Imo, the only way to try and learn everything about Java is to read about it because there is so much (e.g. byte code, jvm, memory model, native methods, concurrency, generics, closures, and so forth). I have some books on specific areas such as closures, concurrence, generics, etc. but they are too specialized for someone just starting out. So I would first read reviews on which are the best books. You can also solicit book recommendations from others on this forum. The last book on Java I had covered Java 1.4 which was pre-generics so I can't recommend any good ones. I would at least try to get a book that covers Java 8+.

    Regards,
    Jim
