||Building a Simple Java Application in Mac OS X|
|Subject:||Great intro to Java|
I saw this article a few years ago and meant to work through it. This week I'm in between projects and got to revisit it this morning. Installed the XCode package that comes with Tiger and I was off and running. I particularly like the way the author introduces key concepts like refactoring, package/folder management, documentation lookup and more in bite-sized steps. It took me a little time to figure out that I had to compile from outside the directory that the package was defined in. The number of tiny but important concepts to be mastered is still daunting, but my experience with this will hopefully help me consider tackling them.
