The Java 2 libraries contain more than 1,500 classes!How many do you usually have to learn as skilled programmers?
Excellence is a HABIT!!!
you don't need to learn all of them, but you have to know what they do...
... and mostly they are all stored in relevant packages for instance all of the file input and output stuff is in Java.io , networking stuff java.net etc.etc.
This means that if a class exists in the API you can work out roughly where to look.
Hope this helps
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, and if they get mad, you are a mile away and you have their shoes ;-)
