This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am working through Sun's XML tutorial with eclipse. I'm hoping to build my skillset on both. When I run my echo program it looks like eclipse is using javaw and not java. Is this a windows version? I look at the tools description from Sun with my JDK and they don't mention javaw.
javaw is a version of the java launcher for windows that does not open a console window for the application. For instance, if you shortcut to start the app and use java MyApp it will open a console window that will receive standard out, if you use javaw MyApp it won't open a console window. I don't know about changing Eclipse's default launcher - am a gvim/IDEA user =) -Brian
