Hey all, I am about to embark on a project for my advisor at school which is essentially to figure out what is going on with a web applet that was put into a basic website. The website loads but the program doesn't load in its table, instead you can see all the java code. More information: I've decided to take this project seriously and look more into learning Java (I have some programming skills but many years back on a windows environment; Now on a mac) What I really want to know is what program should I be using to write and execute code? After browsing and searching forums, I think using the terminal is somehow involved? I really do not know what I need to start practicing more. Text edit and a compiler? Any suggestions on the applet not showing up? Any good books that detail the process on Mac OS? If anyone can suggest anything or help me out I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
