    Default Cross platform Java Programming

    Am a complete beginner in Java
    Programming. I want to create an application in
    Java with the following features:
    I want the application to fetch the
    main section (a table) of a web page,
    I want the .apk of the application to
    alert(pop up) users every time it
    fetches new content from the web
    page, I want the application to run on
    Java phones, android, blackberry
    and on window I want the
    application to display 2 or 3
    interface before the main content
    can be view when launched and
    also, I want to specify a time (maybe
    every 24 hours) that the app should
    check for update.
    I hope someone will guide me with the on instructions and steps
    on how to go about this. Thanks in

    Welcome to the Forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    If you work real hard, follow a reasonable study guide that teaches you Java fundamentals in the proper order, have reasonable (no, changed to 'above average') aptitude for programming, and are committed to devote the time needed to succeed, you should be able to do what you've described in 12 to 18 months. Maybe a little longer for the mobile applications.

    Please let us know what book you're currently using, start at the beginning, and let us know when you're having problems.
