I'm new to Java but not to programming, been doing that since 1975. A few times it's been in my job title but most often as an adjunct duty. When I program it is to support research efforts in various environmental areas which today wildfire and "forest health" using remote sensing. I manage the aircraft as well. My programs may be run by one or two people usually but a couple have "escaped" to other researchers who use the one piece of equipment in the same way we do.
I was about to post a question about reflection but found enough of an answer in the Tips forum that I was able get my app working! :D
I'll certainly use these forums.
