HI there ,,

erm.. java is sorta like a language which is mutliplatform runnable .
it can either run in a window (in a browser) or by itself

however , since it is a mutliplatform language , it is limited by security
factors so writing to the user's harddisk may be a problem .

erm. since its mutliplatform .. you can start creating your own applets in
linux too ..

just download the JDK1.2 compiler from java.sun.com and you are ready to go
..

hope it helps .

Cheers !

Alvin

Subject: java programming for X


I don't know if this is proper place to ask this question but I think
I may be interested in learning how to program in java.  I have some
personal experience using Turbo C 3.0, a little VAX pascal from
college and about a year ago I made some silly little programs in
Visual Basic 5.  I am hardly an expert but I feel I could make a good
programmer if I had some inspiration and guidance.  Right now I'm
still not sure what java really is... Is it for downloading applets
off the internet only or can you make stand alone apps that just run
on the machine?  How can I find out more about java in terms of using
it with linux and afterstep?
thanks..
