I come from a web development background, I know PHP, HTML and CSS. Although I also have a very basic knowledge of C# and VB.net.
As many of the University courses I am looking at teach Java in the first year, I have decided to get a head start and learn some Java basics.
How do I actually begin programming in Java, in PHP, HTML and CSS you just type it into a text file, and then upload it.
I get that you need the Java JDK, which I believe you can get from the Java/Orcal web site.
What else do you need is the only way to program in NetBeans? or are there are other, better alternatives.
Thanks for any help you can provide, and any tips you can give me.
