Trying to learn Java and have been using Netbeans 5.0 just for the free IDE

Problem is that often code samples fail to work due to what I can only assume is missing packages or methods.

Is this the case or am I missing something?

Also, what is the easiest way to find the correct package to import when you just have the method?

Many thanks in advance

Paul.

Hi Paul


Topic: Is Netbeans Java different to normal Java?


Netbeans is an IDE like many other in market - eclipse, jbuilder etc, to facilitate easy and fast java devlepment.

Errors you are gettig are most probably because of some settings you have not done.

Would advise you to go through a tutorial
