Hello all and I just wanted to thank you in advance for the help. I just started learning java and I am new to this forum as well.
I am currently reading HeadFirst Java and I am a bit confused how to execute/view the sourcecode in the codekitchenstiger.jar file posted on head First's main website. When I double click on it, it says "Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute". I am executing the file wrong? thank you
Agree with Larry Frissell. You are better off unzipping the code samples, finding the .java files, and copying the text by hand; that way you will really know what it says and will see what happens if you make a mistake. You learn more that way, and you can see what happens if you change them. Then compile and run them in the usual fashion.
I downloaded the zip file containing the text to all the codes in the book; however, I still want to know how to open this jar file. It's really bugging me, I have tried youtube to see if anybody had posted a vid on how to open these files but, "no luck". How can I open the jar file? Thanks.
Also, Where can I find the answers to the "Exercises" I'm on "BE the compiler" right now and I want to check if my answers are correct. Thanks.
Java experience, about 1 week (Reading Head First Java).
C++ experience, took a class in high school, really had no use for programming languages at that age, barely learned anything.
HTML basic experience, basic text/image formating, and basic CSS style sheets.
Now, I want to learn Java to creat my own Stock Trading platform.
