If you want to find a good tutorial on java, i'd suggest your public library (if you have one). That's how im currently learning java for my ics3m1 next year. Good luck

There realy are only 3 difrent kinds of java that i know of:

Ready to Progame - made by the poleop that make turing

Prue Java - the real java made by sun who are the poleop who invented and made java to beging with.

J++ (M$ java) - M$'s take on java, i perosnly hate it and i think they got swed by sun for making it so this may not be around for long.


Hopfuly your school uses Prue Java, in that case you can download the compiler from the sun website for free.

Indeed. Microsoft took Java and added a bunch of classes to it. The end result was that Java programs written and compiled on Windows that took advantage of these ran fine on Windows, but broke on other platforms, since Microsoft wouldn't let anyone else implement those classes.

It was a way of simultaneously making people think that other platforms were broken, and making Java look bad.

If I opened a Java application written on a Windows machine on a Mac, and it was written to the standards, it should open and run fine. Microsoft changed this without permission. In this case it would run fine on Windows, butrefuse to run on the Mac, or be screwed up. I, being in this case a non-programmer, would open it up, see it doesn't work and promptly either say "damn Mac!" or "damn Java!".

Prue Java is free, go to www.sun.com to get it. Also there are free editors for it like JCreator, see the post by rizzix for info on that.

uses? Odd question. Last year I taught Visual C++.

The IDE you use doesn't matter that much. The core language is the same as long as you don't use any custom made classes (e.g. Console class by Holt) which I will avoid like the plauge. I'm planning on using JCreator because it is easy for students to download and use at home and it has the basic features I want (this still might change by September).

a really good IDE is called Eclipse www.eclipse.org. It is a very powerrfuyll and easy to use IDE. To use it you must first download and install the Java SDK from Sun Microsystems website www.sun.com.

One really good feature about Eclipse is that it adds in the end brackets for you hen you use an open bracket (n e 1 who knows Java knows that curved and swirl brackets are used extensivly in it.

Hope that helps. Very Happy

if actionscript is as close to java as i think it is, the curly brackets are used for conditions, correct?

i.e.

code:

-not actual code. this is just a representation-

if q==1 {
     % DOOOOOOOOOOM!
}



right?

This should be:

code:
if (q == 1) {
   // do something
}

www.crimsoneditor.com is another good compiler... NEVER USE HOLTSOFT!!!! (Ready to Java) it will ruin your java experience... as it did mine... anyways as McKenzie said... it doesn't matter as long as you are learning the core language... Have a nice day.
