I completed Assignment 3 some time ago. Then got real busy at work. Starting on 4 (say a) now

Would there be some format for requesting a review ? If I want to inquire about a book that has not been reviewed how would I go about it ? I think the idea as a whole is teriffic.

Tom,
I can't be real specific here because at the moment I cannot get Forte to load... but you have to check that Forte is pointing to your jdk files correctly. Did you download the version with or without the JDK ?
(hope I am thinking of the correct IDE )
Paul,
are you saying my machine ??? I am fairly lax with my security, but I don't have broadband and I don't have any really personal info on my machine. Although I have been online for nearly 10 years I have yet to buy anything online, so I don't really worry about cc numbers etc on my machine. But I hate to think someone has hacked my system.

It was around 9:00 am Eastern time Saturday morning. The address bar said www.javaranch.com but I was not there. I could not get to this site at all.

Did anyone else get redirected to this site when trying to reach the JavaRanch this morning.
I got up, poured my coffee and was heading to the Saloon for my morning reading when instead I was faced with a pic of Jesse Jackson and whining about the Florida vote count ( no offense meant to any Floridians !).
I tried all the links in my history but got 404's only.

I would recommend "Beginning Java Objects". I found it the best explanation linking Java to OO for a beginner

Shama,
I have had the same experience. I still haven't passed he assignment, but have the next two completed and working on the fourth. As I get feedback on 1.1 I go back and edit the others also.

Although the ternary form is valid in some cases, it does produce code that is hard to read. If I have to pause and think " How does that work again?" when maintaining code then I am more likely to make a mistake. Also, it is for assignments, not for statements.

Anne,
I am following much the same track as you, 4 year mainframer, working on java with an eye on getting certified. I would be very interested in learing more about setting up a java front end to mainframe apps.
As far as your job search, an idea might be to go to a consulting co, and get a position where they are converting or tying in to legacy code. You might be in a mainframe position but get some exposure and experience on the java side.

I am running Forte on WinME wihout any apparent problems. I haven't used it much, but it seems to be working fine.
My experience has been enlightening. I was using VAJava 3.02, worked through IBM's tutuorials and most of a book's examples, learning Java along the way. I downloaded KAWA (which I like) and started trying to write my own code. Realized very quickly I had no real idea what I was doing.
My recommendation: use an editor, or a very lightweight IDE like Kawa, and learn to code in Java. Then, experiment with the various IDE's and see which best fits your style.
