Like the thread header says, I have no clue at all about writing Java except my browser won't let me use some kinds (mostly chat programs). I am on a VERY VERY modest budget and I am wondering where I can get a start on learning Java...I know how to do HTML coding, but I could not get C++ to work for me at all. I have seen some Java in the past that I want to use for my webpage, but it's old and appearantly no one thinks they're "cool" anymore so I can't find the codes to use and give them their due credit. PLEASE HELP!
Hi Sarah, welcome to the ranch! What you are looking for are Java "applets", which are designed to run in a web browser. Java can also be used to write a normal application (like a word processor or even a web browser). If you want to learn how to write Java, the ranch is a great place get answers to any questions you might have about the language. Do a search on google for "java tutorials" for the basics on getting started, like how to write simple programs and how to compile/run them. [ June 02, 2003: Message edited by: Jon Dornback ]
