    Default getting started tips

    Hi all,

    I am started literally brand new in java (I have medium experience in other languages) and I am looking to find the best way to start. I am intending to design a program that can draw certain information in from certain websites, I have identified java as the best language to write the program in. I have looked at using NetBeans 6.1 to write my program (with JDK 6 obviously), but would Java EE also be useful for the application of my program? Any tips on what to use would be very useful.

    Best Regards,
    Robert

    You should start using a tutorial, I like this one:
    Java Tutorial interaktiv - Programmieren lernen mit Java

    I do not think you need Java EE at this point, you will know when it is time... :)

    Thanks, from what I can tell that website is mainly in German but I guess chrome translate will have to suffice. I was intending to use Java Beginner Tutorial to learn the basics but I might give yours a go.

    Ok i'll leave Java EE for the time being - but will it be useful when I start attempting to write a program that can draw information from the internet (when the time comes)?

    :)

    Thanks for the reply with videos! I have started on Introduction to Computer Science using Java which is really good! And I'll supplement this with videos as time progresses.

    Thanks again!
