how building software with java

how building software with java

1 Answer

Well at first you need at least a basic knowledge of the Java programming language. Than you need the JDK (Java Development Kit) installed on your computer. You also need an editor installed. Well if you want you could use even notepad from windows. But I recommend something with at least Syntax-Highlighting support for Java. Now your ready to type in your Java code. Once that's done you need to compile you code to an java executable with the Java Compiler from the JDK.

That's what you need to write a Java program. For more detailed explanations you could check out the docs from oracle or try a little search on google or the search engine you like.

Thank you very much

No problem :)
