Got a programming question?

Well, you could talk to other programmers, read the Java SE 6 documentation, access user groups, search the web, browse forums, read blogs, rss feeds, read the documentation again *ouch!*

Or..... until Wednesday 14th February... you could let Sun Engineers find the answer for you -- within 24 hours.

If that sounds good, just go to the following URL on sun.com and get others to work for you! :-)
