Where can I get the Java Language Specification (JLS)?

John Zukowski

While you can always purchase the book, Sun provides this for free from their web site at http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/html/index.html. Be sure to look at the changes for Java 1.1 at http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/html/1.1Update.html which are part of the second edition of the The Java Language Specification book. There were no language changes for Java 1.2.
