    Software development typically can't stand on its own. It needs to be paired up with other comp sci disciplines (and preferably completely different fields like business, accounting, math, other science fields etc) to be really effective. For instance, if you pair it up with wireless tech you becomes lethal in things like designing for Android or iOS because when you understand the wireless protocols and tech, you design software that can leverage the tech and make incredible things.

    Another example, you pair it up with media and you get into creating some great programs that deal with image, audio, video etc. Pair it up with networking and you can build tools for troubleshooting networks, watching network traffic etc.

    I would see that class as nothing but win for you. The more you can learn about other IT fields the more versatile and marketable you become. Hands down I would take it. Especially if it fits in a time period where you really aren't learning anything else... like during the summer. If I had to go through school all over again, I would have definitely taken computer classes in the summer. Even if the rest of the year I was also learning computing.

    In short, taking that class is a no brainer in my book. It will only help you in the future.


    Thanks, looks like I'll be taking it then.

    Just solved the problem. Being new to NetBeans, I didn't think the output would be any different if I ran the whole project vs running the individual program(what I should have been doing). Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Make sure you're looking for the output in the right place in NetBeans

    I'm looking for it where it says Output-Project_Name (run). All it says is Build Successful. Is that the right place?

    I just switched to NetBeans from Eclipse so I'm pretty new to it. I added some test println's to see if I could get those to show up on the console, but for some reason they don't. I think you're right but I'm still not sure where to look.

    I made a simple hello world program in netbeans and the output shows up in the console--where I've been looking in the other program.

    I'm not sure what your issue is. I've tested in Win 7 and it works just fine. I pointed it to my desktop, ran it, then added a text file to my desktop, renamed it, and it tracked it just fine. Here is the output:

    Event on New Text document.txt is ENTRY_CREATE
    Event on New Text document.txt is ENTRY_DELETE
    Event on asdf.txt is ENTRY_CREATE
    Event on asdf.txt is ENTRY_MODIFY

    You say "nothing is showing up on the command line". Do you mean the console? Are you running this off of a terminal or from an IDE? If from an IDE then wherever your IDE points the output is where the info will show up.

    There's nothing wrong with this code and it is functioning properly.

    Sorry for the delayed response time, I haven't been able to access my computer the past week. You're right. I meant to say the console. I purposefully used this program for the simple reason that it is ready to run without using the command line.

    I don't see why this wouldn't output to my console though. I haven't modified the program and it uses System.out.println(). Also I am using Windows XP and NetBeans IDE 7.2

    Just to clarify, I checked that I'm modifying the correct folder. All I do to test is run the program, and then modify the folder in some way.

    No it says the build was successful. It gives no exceptions and no errors.
