Apache Commons

I had forgotten that the first Java book I read, Bruce Eckel's "Thinking In Java", highly recommended using Apache Commons if you found that the core language didn't contain something you expected to be there. The "Commons" are vast set of libraries that improve and add to the core Java language, and can be a huge time saver.

My goal this week is to read all the Commons' user guides to get familiar with its capabilities.
