    Question Tasty Java

    I was wondering if there is a java forum.. comparable to the quality of cprogramming.com... a place for java programmers to dwell and talk java type stuff.

    So where does everyone hang out for their java needs?

    If you download the JDK, which is free, it comes with a free compiler. How can you be "not a big fan" without even knowing the language?

    If you're looking for an IDE, I liked JCreator when I was doing Java stuff, and I think Borland was offering JBuilder for free for awhile. Don't know if they still are.

    I like Java personally. Also had JBuilder 3 or 4 a while back, though I cannot recall at this time.

    The Brain: There are some nice Java forums out. For Java programming, scripts, and other development talks. I found one of many Java forums that seem somewhat comparable in quality. It's not easy to find a Java Discussion Board that's alive, in most cases.

    This one is called JavaRanch. Seems pretty alive, and up-to-date.

    If interested in Java Game Programming, there is always javagaming.org

    Hope this helps,

    Cool thanks, ah i just saying not a big fan because
    comments i made a while back on a question
    about java, was just trying to keep the flames away

    im sure java a decent language it just wouldnt
    be my first choice. but im taking the advice of many
    here and consider learning a few more languages.

    not that im done with c++ or anything, but since they are
    similar i think i could learn them side by side.

    thanks for the reply though ill check it out.

    For what? You shouldn't say that if you don't know anything about the language.

    For starters, Java was modeled on C++. The languages are quite similar, though Java is more platform dependant. Although the Java language is modeled on C++, it has several fundamental differences. If you want more detail, you check out the following links:


    In closing, as you learn Java, you will encounter many differences, despite some strong similarities.

    for compilers: JBuilder X 10 - make sure its 10 or higher as the older ones fsck up on some swing libraries. Eclispse is also free - probably the best one yet; although there is a learning curve if you really want to utilize its full potential. I also use JavaBeans (this one is my least favorite one) because it has a great GUI builder. SOme other ones, JCreator which cheez mentioned, and BlueJ.
