Yes,im sorry Fred you are right. Im just kind of new to java,plus i was really tired. After finding what was wrong i can say for sure there was no way to get help the way i asked it. Thanks for taking the time to answer my thread though!

Thanks for fast reply Paul. Well,im not sure i understand your question,but i mean that, what i wanted to do,is read a string, then say if the string is "B" call the getB method(), if it is "knot" the getKnot method,if it is "exit" make the com true so you exit the loop. So if i enter "exit" it leaves the loop,but entering B or knot doesnt work,its like entering wrong text,back to loop start. I dont know if that was your question.

Hey guys. Im sorry if my question will be a little vague and "noob" but i have this problem ive been thinking for 2 hours and im tired,i hope maybe you can help again.
I read a string from the keyboard and i use an if to determine what "word" is it. The if (xx.equals("exit"){ seems to be working fine,but the other two don't.Its so simple i cant think whats going wrong...

Hello everyone. I want to say a thanks in advance to anyone taking the time to help me out,appreciate it.
I am a total java-noob, so i would suggest that anyone who tries to give me some answers has a great deal of patience :p I thank you for that too.
Off to the questions then. Ive studied 9 months pascal (!), and 11 months C and had a few visual basic lessons,so the first question i need to ask is: what on earth is up with java?
i don't understand the lack of its own "program platform" which would include text editor,compiler,debugger, preferences editor(like,i dont know,path setting?) etc? Whats with using a text editor,
which in my case is (im ashamed to say so) wordpad,aka "spam tab"pad? I started learning the basics of java, code,differences with C etc,when i realise im at point 0, since i have absolutely no idea how to even set up the basics. How to set up the \bin path,how to compile, what am i going to do with my ,erm,primitive wordpad text editor etc.
I understand that what im asking is a getting started guide, but most of all i need to understand why this language is the way it is...
