I am sure he was.

It seems like he did enough basic research to ask a beginners question.
How about opening a 101 book at least once?
He probably did. It probably said Deitel on the cover.
And, isn't this trivially googlable as well?
Most of the answers I found on my trivial Google assumed a certain amount
of foreknowledge of programming. If you are an absolute beginner they are
daunting and filled with many technical terms.
Furthermore, Google isn't a conversation. By asking a question in a public
forum about Java, Tac was seeking a conversation and someone to help him
understand. Fortunately he received useful instruction and comments before
you posted your message. In the future please try to be more respectful of
people who may be trying to learn.
