What is exception ?
An event during program execution that prevents the program from
continuing normally; generally, an error. The Java programming language
supports exceptions with the try, catch, and throw keywords. See also
What is exception handler ?
A block of code that reacts to a specific type of exception. If the
exception is for an error that the program can recover from, the program
can resume executing after the exception handler has executed.
What is executable content ?
An application that runs from within an HTML file. See also applet.
What is extends ?
Class X extends class Y to add functionality, either by adding fields or
methods to class Y, or by overriding methods of class Y. An interface
extends another interface by adding methods. Class X is said to be a
subclass of class Y. See also derived from.
What is field ?
A data member of a class. Unless specified otherwise, a field is not
What is final ?
A Java keyword. You define an entity once and cannot change it or derive
from it later. More specifically: a final class cannot be subclassed, a
final method cannot be overridden and a final variable cannot change
from its initialized value.
What is finally ?
A Java keyword that executes a block of statements regardless of whether
a Java Exception, or run time error, occurred in a block defined
previously by the try keyword.
What is float ?
A Java keyword used to define a floating point number variable.
What is for ?
A Java keyword used to declare a loop that reiterates statements. The
programmer can specify the statements to be executed, exit conditions,
and initialization variables for the loop.
What is FTP ?
File Transfer Protocol. FTP, which is based on TCP/IP, enables the
fetching and storing of files between hosts on the Internet. See also
What is formal parameter list ?
The parameters specified in the definition of a particular method. See
also actual parameter list.
What is garbage collection ?
The automatic detection and freeing of memory that is no longer in use.
The Java runtime system performs garbage collection so that programmers
never explicitly free objects.
What is generic ?
A class, interface, or method that declares one or more type variables.
These type variables are known as type parameters. A generic declaration
defines a set of parameterized types, one for each possible invocation
of the type parameter section. At runtime, all of these parameterized
types share the same class, interface, or method.
What is goto ?
This is a reserved Java keyword. However, it is not used by current
versions of the Java programming language.
What is GUI ?
Graphical User Interface. Refers to the techniques involved in using
graphics, along with a keyboard and a mouse, to provide an easy-to-use
interface to some program.
What is hexadecimal ?
The numbering system that uses 16 as its base. The marks 0-9 and a-f (or
equivalently A-F) represent the digits 0 through 15. In programs written
in the Java programming language, hexadecimal numbers must be preceded
with 0x. See also octal.
