Ok cool, I have that one downloaded but just havent been able to get much done w/ it lately. I was using the command line compiler to work through the head first java book. I still have some OOP topics to study and some experience to gain with computer programs. I have read through most of the book but I think at this point working on my own program will be a good way to get the knowledge I need to move this in to a career choice. I am probably going to work on a basic program for my wife to track income/expenses etc on. I think that I can use it to also work on connecting to databases and saving informatoin etc.
Any tips or suggestions on how to design a program w/out using an visual editor. I read through it on head first java but I just wanted to see what other suggestions might be out there. Any recommended tutorials?
