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'll start with a little history, my crazy java teacher hasn't taught us nearly anything all semester, and now he decides to give us a final on something he's never done before. He asked us to convert a c program into java. Oh, he said we could use any resorces we could get our hands on, so here i am .
This is what i have done so far. I downloaded c2j and converted the c files into java. I then loaded those java files into blue J. It compiles, however, it never launches a program. I'm assuming im missing something obvious but like i said, i'm new to this so have mercy lol.
The goal is to get the code in those files into java and make a program start. It is suppost to be a fractal compression program.
I get the impression your teacher is looking for you to convert the program, not for a C-to-Java converter to do it for you. Java is very much like a "Super C", and it uses many of C's constructs, so you should be able to figure out how to do the same thing in Java that you do in C. I recommend going to java.sun.com, downloading the tutorial, and at least read "Your First Cup of Java". Then you can post more-specific questions about your project rather than asking us to do your homework for you. Good luck!

Cheers, Jeff (SCJP 1.4, SCJD in progress, if you can call that progress...)
Tell me, did you take C++ I and II? I'm currently taking C++ II and it is confusing as ever! And along with that, I am in my first class of Java, which blows my mind as well. However, I have noticed I'm getting pretty good with applets. They are so fun. I guess, like my teacher told me, I'll be an applet queen someday. Ha. Good luck with your progress.
