|Please Help A Newbie With Java. by Antidotecasmir(m): 7:34am On Sep 16|
Dear programmers, after installing jdk and configuring it in my system, what should I do next ?
|Re: Please Help A Newbie With Java. by Karleb(m): 8:45am On Sep 16|
Install an IDE, I'll recommend NetBeans.
Google how to run your first Java program on it or you could try to do it instinctively.
...and follow a tutorial.
I said an IDE because I find it easy to run code on it.

Install Eclipse and get some good tutorials from YouTube.
Feel free to reference stackoverflow or ask questions here when you get stuck

OP look at the first 3 comments. That's what I started with. 1. NetBeans 2. Eclipse 3.IntelliJ IDEA but as a beginner you should not start with IDE, rather I would tell you to start with notepad or note++ and run your code in the command line. That way you will understand how JVM work and how you can debug your code without IDE.

Coder2Client:So we still have hardened CLI/Shell commandos.

SegFault:Don't get it wrong. I said for a beginner who wants to start Java s/he must have that knowledge of running code from the command line. Even if it is just a day or two. Everybody uses IDE these days.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my thread so far. I found them(your contributions) very helpful. I guess I'll just have to think about it a bit and then decide whether to go for notepad/note++ or IDE.

Coder2Client:O boy, I'm still a hardcore shell user, even when I switched from termux to using a laptop, I still went back to the shell because I realised that when you compile and write makefiles by hand you get to know what and how everything is happening, that's why I prefer to use the shell.
