    Default Programming an IOS app wtih eclipse

    Hello everyone!

    I'm currently studying java in a university class and the final is to create an app. I was wondering since the native for IOS for what i understand is Objective-C if it's possible to write one in java specifically using Eclipse since that's the plataform we are using at the moment. If not, is there any other plataform i could use?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Yes you can use eclipse to develop android app, I don't know about ios apps. Java is the default or recommended language for Android app development. So don't need to worry about cross platform setup on eclipse.

    Thank you for the info again. Java ME is the version. Micro edition. Android. "Robust", so it means it will last and not broke down. Steve Jobs was the IOS. The programming language he was on or game he was working on was the Atari. He was a guru in computer programming. James Goslin was the inventor of Java. Cross platform, so a website on windows could be run on IOS or Android.

    XCode largely uses standard Unix tools for a lot of its work. iPhone applications are compiled using GCC 4.0, it uses gdb for debugging, so it should be possible to set up Eclipse to at least compile applications.

    If you look in the Build section of the Project Info pane (select the project, hit the Info button in XCode, choose the Build tab from the top) you can see many of the options.

    I'm not sure what is required to copy a file to the simulator and attach a debugger to do a test run, it might not be worthwhile to jump through all the hoops and Apple may require an XCode generated build to accept an app into the App Store.

    It may be the case that for regular code editing you can work reasonably well in Eclipse, then switch to XCode for interactive debugging.

    Most of the existing Eclipse plugins seem to be oriented towards developer iPhone-aware web applications, so I'm not sure if you'll get any help there.

    I was wondering about the downloads on a pc for the java kits and JVM, is this an integration program? Meaning all under a curve? Function itself. By this I mean when the language came about, the pc and microsoft must have used identical methods. Like What? FileInputStream and the Stream files, or byte streams. The program must have looked similar. Java
