Default Has Anyone Here Tried Programming in Java?

I've been looking at it and have things to work out, but I might just burn out instead. Time will tell.

But I do like the fact that I am not stuck with the built-in limitations that are inherent in programs such as...well you know...DING!

Java and other languages do promise that you might be able to do anything that you are thinking of, to the limits of your own personal abilities.

Hmmm.

What a bad time it is to be starting this thread!
Last Thursday (Jan 10: My Birthday) Homeland Security (USA) declared Java a Threat to Homeland Security.

Ah Gee Whiz...

the NHS declares everything to be a threat to the USA...even themselves!
those letters actually are short for the "New Hitler Society"
they are some of the biggest jerks ever to crawl on this planet
and in the dark often mistake their elbow for their asses!
Can ya' tell I hate them with a passion?
personal reasons but the NHS sucks to say the least

Maybe it was just their way of saying they hate coffee; I know I do.

Right there with you guys. And yes, I have. The Timpinball forum was programmed in java. I picked up just enough by copy/pasting and modifying to get by. That's how I learned vb in such a short time.

I use that site (properly-set timepieces are a good thing) but a few months ago, Firefox began disabling the Java platform ( now updated to SE 7 U10 10.10.2.18 ) due to "security vulnerabilities", so I've become a regular visitor to "Manage Add-ons'. Kind of odd that a fedgov website would utilize a homeland threat, don'cha think?

During the PN blackout, I found this Excellent online Java Programming site, written by a Professor from a New York University, David Ecks, so ignore the part about New York because the Professor has provided A Very Good Source of Learning.
Anyone who has some Visual Pinball/VBScript programming under their belt probably needs to empty their pants and move on to real programming, but the experience with VP is at some advantage to understanding these lessons, particularly the early basic properties of variables and Subroutines.
