Basic Question from Networking Beginner
Hello, programmers. I'm pretty much a self-taught Java programmer (with books and online tutorials as my aids), and I find myself ready to go to the next step. I'm interested in testing the Java networking waters. My question probably has an obvious answer to most of you, but am I able to use Java networking code if my Internet doesn't work? My laptop and my PC are wirelessly networked via my router (as are a couple other devices), but my router cannot pick up the Internet signal from my modem (for some unknown reason). Do I need to wait until my Internet is working through my router to try out Java networking. There's a whole chapter in my favorite Java book, and I'm just itching to try it out.

You don't need an internet connection to write and test code if you have a server on your pc. Use the 127.0.0.1 local host address to communicate between the server and client.
There is a free server: Tomcat from Apache that a lot of java programmers use that can be downloaded and installed on your PC.

On most computers, the name localhost is mapped to 127.0.0.1
so you can enter that and use the more human friendly name rather than IPv4 octets.
You may have to make sure the firewall on your computer allows access to and from localhost

EE is just more stuff, I have several bits and pieces from EE on SE 1.5 and it runs better for the most part,... to much bloat to install everything they want you to have.
You can do what poster wants with 1.2Introduction to Programming Using Java.
