What a Rich Resource: Sun's Software Developer Forums
Sun's software developer forums, which span award-winning tools to runtimes to desktop to Java technology, is a must for developers. The only prerequisite is that you join Sun Developer Network as a member. That membership is free.
After logging in to a forum, you can read the exchanges, post a topic, or join the conversations. Remember, Sun's engineering teams--who develop the software--monitor and respond to the postings; the forums are your direct line to those folks. You can also interact with other members of the community here and learn best practices, troubleshooting tips, and swap tidbits of interest.
So why wait? Jump on the bandwagon of Sun's software developer forums.
