What is a Library/API

Those are two things:
1) A library is a set of widely used common functionality (Math is a good example, as is LWJL)

2) An API is a collection of exposed objects and interfaces that allow other programs/code to interface with another program/code without having to expose (make public) the implementation or source. An API is a contract that says, "I solemnly swear that these methods exist and do what the documentation says they do."

You just do.


I have one. I'm the only one using it, but I have it. It also happens to be both a library (I put my registry handlers in it) and an API (it is where I expose the interfaces for my capabilities).

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
