Programming in Java: Suggestions to SunPosted: November 20, 2005
Came across this post. Glad to have found another blog that will talk about Java. I was a little surprised to read that people still prefer to avoid IDE’s. For a couple of years now, Industry has been pushing Dev’s to embrace IDE’s. But it’s true. Folks will still prefer to use Vi, Emacs, and maybe even Notepad (shudder) as they start out in Java.
Here are a few topics that I thought were interesting that came up:
- Autoboxing and Unboxing
- Autoboxing and Unboxing in Java 1.5
- The Jikes compiler
- Tim Bray’s blog
