I’m very much a newbie with Java, so please excuse my ignorance as I start the path to enlightenment…
My son has asked my help to create a logic game he’s been thinking about for some time. It’s not graphics driven so I thought it might be a good long term project for the both of us to learn Java.
My plan is to initially develop the very basic aspects of the application structure and slowly refine the project to meet his needs (as our understanding of Java programming improves).
Here are a couple of questions:
- A chat server application that resides on a Linux web server accessing a local MySQL database interfacing with Java applet clients across the WEB – Is Java a good choice for this type of application?
- If Java makes sense, what type of configuration would be required for Java on the server side (Linux)?
