The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
I'm thinking about Java and how much I like the idea of Java but I'm also wondering if it really is a dead thing -- except legacy work.
In other words:
Why would anyone choose to start a new/modern project using Java?
Why does it seem that few people do Java dev here (CP) but there seem to always be jobs posted around that want Java dev experience?
For Java devs:
Which IDE do you use, do you like?
Why would I choose JDeveloper (larger) over netbeans?
Is JDeveloper any good? It's a huge 2GB download so I'm curious before downloading/installing.
Is JDeveloper based upon Eclipse?
Is netbeans based upon Eclipse?
Note: I used Eclipse in the earlier days of Android Development and thought it was terrible because its concept of a project was not great and it was difficult to take your "project" to another machine and work on it there.
Is Java a valid choice for cross-platform development (windows to linux to macOS)?
Or is that a dream also?
Not trying to start a huge war about Java technology and why it's obviously the best/worst etc.
I'm thinking about doing some Java work so I'm interested.
Downloaded NetBeans and so far it seems fairly nice and somewhat similar to Android Studio.
Maybe NetBeans is all you need. Plus, I believe it runs on Linux too.
That's ... annoying! I want a *relaxing* game (so no FPS's for starters) and have seen Euro Truck Simulator 2 recommended for such, and it looks like it might be what I want, but it's Steam powered... (and dirt cheap.)
