Java standard?

P: n/a
Does Java have a standard like C++? If so, where can I get a copy?
And how many implementations of this standard exist?

Define "standard". Go to java.sun.com and look under documentation.

Java has official standards built on API's that have evolved over the years.
Java would have no interoperability if it had no standards, as Microsoft had
hoped would happen when they began adding their own flavor to Java. Since
then they were called on it and had to invent their own copy of Java, C#.
Might as well learn it though as I went to show my boss a friends resume
today and was told no Americans can be considered for any more consulting
positions. That's another topic..
