    I'm just learning Java and finally got Xcode 3 installed. Now I'm wondering how do I get a Java application up and running with Xcode? I'm kinda really new to this so saying 5 instructions in 7 words might confuse me :D

    Here's three words: Don't use XCode

    It's not designed for Java development. Instead, consider the use of a stripped down IDE such as Netbeans BlueJ edition

    I'm using eclipse but I'm now stuck again on where I was with Xcode. How do I do my simple Helloworld app? I have the code but now want to use it :eek:

    I think im going to use netbeans since it seems easier.

    Questions just like yours have been asked and answered a number of times on this and other forums sites. The basic consensus is that if you want to learn Java, and not just a tool like Netbeans, Eclipse, IntelliJ, etc, you should start off by using a simple text editor like TextMate, TextWrangler, etc. and compiling/running your applications from the command line.

    I agree. It helps you understand how Java programs are compiled, and it really makes things simple when you're just learning. Once you start doing large projects, then you can use an IDE. I recommend Oracle's JDeveloper once you get to that point.
