Hi all,

What is the most commonly used platform for the SCJD project, I am planning on developing on a Windows ME system with JDK2 1.4. I could also develop on a linux system (linux 6, I think) which of these would be a better option ?

I also hava Java Forte and JBuilder, what is peoples opinion of using these ?

thanks,

J.C

Hi James,

The platform should not really matter, since Java promises "build once, run everywhere". We don't know what platform the assessors use, otherwise the safest bet would be to use what they are using. They will probably either be using Solaris, because they are affiliated with Sun or they will be using Windows, because statistics favor it

I don't know Java Forte. I used JBuilder 2005 for my assignment, mainly because that's what I use in the workplace (but it's pretty good IMHO). I also have good experiences with Eclipse. But any IDE you like will do, as long as you make sure that you don't use any code-generating feature of the IDE, because there is an explicit rule in the instructions that you can't.

Frans.

Forte is what's now called Netbeans (and was called Netbeans before being called Forte).

I too prefer JBuilder. It's a far better work environment.

No, you should read the book. While the movie looks like it might be OK, the book has been a classic for years! And movies never live up to the books!
