JAWS, a Windows screen reader, may not always correctly read the Java code examples in this document. The conventions for writing Java code require that closing braces should appear on an otherwise empty line; however, JAWS may not always read a line of text that consists solely of a bracket or brace.


In examples, an implied carriage return occurs at the end of each line, unless otherwise noted. You must press the Return key at the end of a line of input.

The java.lang.String object is sometimes abbreviated as String.

Although Boolean is a proper noun, it is presented as boolean in this guide because Java is case-sensitive.

The following conventions are also used in this guide:

Convention  Meaning 


Vertical ellipsis points in an example mean that information not directly related to the example has been omitted. 


Horizontal ellipsis points in statements or commands mean that parts of the statement or command not directly related to the example have been omitted. 

boldface text 

Boldface text indicates a term defined in the text.

In code examples, a boldface number in brackets (for example, [1]) indicates that particular code will be described in more detail in the subsequent numbered list. 

italic text 

Italic text is used for emphasis and for book titles. 

< > 

Angle brackets enclose user-supplied names. 

[ ] 

Brackets enclose optional clauses from which you can choose one or none.
