Other Java APIs
 Java has many APIs, some of them as follows:
 Java 2D. The API for two-dimensional graphics "enables
programs to produce jaw-dropping visuals."
 Java Sound. This API provides support for audio
playback and recording.
 JDBC. The API for Java Database Connectivity allows
Java applications to interact with relational databases. If
you are familiar with databases and wish to learn more,
walk through Sun's tutorial on the JDBC Basics.
 Java Games. This API supports the development of
simple online games.

how to learn more and keep yourself up-to-date?
 Sun Developer Services. Register for a free membership.
 Discussion Forums. An interactive message board for
sharing knowledge and questions about Java
technologies and programming techniques.
 Chat Sessions. Sun engineers and other Java software
insiders share their knowledge and perspectives on the
latest Java technology events in these online chats.
 Java User Groups. A JUG is a group of people who share
a common interest in Java technology and meet on a
regular basis to share technical ideas and information.
Most JUGs maintain email lists where members can post
 Core Java Technologies Tech Tips. A monthly newsletter
that contains tips, techniques, and sample code on
various topics of interest.
