In this constructor JDate(int julianDate) what is "int" talking about, and what is "julianDate" talking about? What am I supposed to pass to this constructor, a julian Date of type int?

What is that JDate class you mention? It is not a part of the standard Java API. Do you have documentation for the JDate class? Does it explain exactly what it expects as input?

It is from com.javaranch.common

All it says is: JDate(int julianDate)
Create a new JDate object specified as the number of days since January 1, 0000.

So, the documentation explains exactly what the argument means:

what is "int" talking about, and what is "julianDate" talking about? What am I supposed to pass to this constructor, a julian Date of type int?

int is the type of the parameter and julianDate is just a name that is used to refer to this value in the method.
