Default Java

noone .. NOONE is posting in the real computer forums man , like 3 days since the last post there.. i just need a quick definitive answer and ill delete this

So i just started learning java using one of my brothers old dummies books

This book is OLD.. Java is only at version 1.1 in it. Is java the same for programming or has it been completely revamped? Should i get a new book with version 5(?) in it, or use this one! Help!

edit: i just had a look at the post you made in the programming sections, and someone did reply:

yea, a 1.1 book for .2 is no prob, but 1.1 for 5.x is probably gonna have some major differences. I have an autocad 14 book, and autocad 2000 (my grandpa got the from his work for free). 14 is only 2 versions before 2000 and 1/2 the stuff in it has changed.
