Oracle's support (lack) is worse than Adobe so you just need to Google around.Java support has always been carried on the shoulders of the community really. For the gritty details I've always had to rely on information found in forums, articles and blogs (some more obscure than others) even in the times where Sun still owned the name. Sun did create nice usage documentation though. Things were no different when I was coding C/C++ on Windows systems; MSDN is great, until things start to break down. Then Google is great.
