I'm glad that you're working in parallel, one is busy with Java programming and the other is busy with theoretic stuff.
For Programming man, you still have a week to finish your tutorial for Java, but Hilal has to work a little bit harder.
Hilal, try to find the following terms, make as a small report and then send it to me:
