there are literally TONS of dev tools out there. since i am just a beginner, i would like som e advice on which software to use(uncomplicated) as for sun, i spent a good 3 hrs downloading the 15 pieces(1.44m each) for the sdk1.2, and finally it turns out that the primary critical file is corrupted. gosh, im frustrated
Hi Chetan, Though many development tools tempt u to use them, i would like to suggest you to use basic editor of ur operating system. It is the best tool for u to learn java. Once ur familiar with the concepts and basic commands of java, u can turn towards visual tools like powerj, jbuilder e.t.c. to make ur job easier. Chetan, try to download the whole package of jdk on your hard drive instead of dowloading it in pieces. Later, u can break it and copy in to floppies, using tools like split. This reduces the chances of corruption. I hope this info. may help u in reducing ur frustration. Loke.
