I'll be doing individual java programing over the summer for my coop job and will probably looking around hear for help if I get stumped by something in java. I'll also look to see if there's anything I can help you guys with as well. I program mostly in java now, I've tried other languages before, like c and c++ was the language I learned programming in, I've also tinkered with perl, also some python. But, not I mostly stick with java cause I like netbeans and eclipse and the shere lazyness which these IDE's allow. Also java has like the most documentation and best documentation I've seen for any language, also so many packages are included by default you can pretty much do everything with ease. My favourite things in eclipse are alt-enter and the quick error fix where you click the red x at the left hand margin and it fixes your error for you :) I pretty much can sometimes forgo reading documentation altogether and just alt-enter the class to see what I can do. Yeah java is lazy.... Right now I'm working on a java GUI program which displays mainly graphs from recorded and real-time data using java's awt/swing and JFreeChart a free graphing package. I tried to program my own graph drawing classes using java's canvas and graphics class calling stuff like graphics.drawline but then I was like fuck that.

Hello username9000. Welcome to the Java Programming Forums :D
I like Java too for these reasons. Eclipse is a very good IDE! I love the suggested error fixes, it makes debugging a hell of a lot easier!
Good luck with your future projects. I hope you enjoy your stay here.

Hey, welcome :).
Sounds like you know what you are upto a little then. Nice to have someone else that can offer help around as well as seek advice. I have also played with Python, I did spend some time on it and I am able to program some things in it, in the past i've done simple IM clients and servers etc. Also I use C++ from time to time, I'm currently in the proccess of writing some things in C++ using the JNI so that it can easily be linked into Java :) this is a keyboard and mouse hook. So if you ever need any help with things like that just ask, and i'll see what I can do for you.
I also have experience with graphics API in different languages, I have looked at Java2D a little but not in great detail, I might make a little game like aseroids or networked pong or somehting lol. But one thing I have considered before is graphing packages, and quite frankly I have never managed to work out just how you would go about doing it lol!
