    Hi All,


    I'm in a situation!!,where I've been given the complete code of the product that I'm currently working on and have been asked to fix a defect(please note that I've no prior experience in developement/bug fixing).I understand that this needs me to know the flow of the code.Can you please provide suggestions/information on how do I proceed further in learning the code flow on my own.

    Any tip/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Default Re: Help in learning code flow!!!-please help

    Hello tj23 and welcome to the Java Programming Forums.

    Java is an object oriented language so the code flow differs from a procedural language like Visual Basic 6.

    There are some exceptions but Java code will always start from the Main method. For example,

    public static void main (String[] args){
    //Starting code here..

    If you use this as your starting point then you should be able to see what methods are called from here and work out the code flow.

    For more information try these links:
