    Default Java application development

    Does anyone know about coding in Java and application development? I have a bit of C++ experience, but Java seems completely new. Is there any kind difference between programming for a computer, Android, and tablet? Does it matter if I run on a SDK or ADT? I downloaded a bundle which includes both a SDK and Eclipse, but I'm not sure if it matters on which on I program with.

    Hi, I'm a Java Web System Developer, I never worked seriously with C++ but already did some stuffs with it, and it's not so difficult to change from C++ to Java looking at the fact that Java born from C. You will only need to adapt with the syntax and have in mind that Java is fully Object Oriented.

    Yes, there are differences to develop to a computer and android, you will need to have the Android SDK installed on your computer and ADT plugin for the IDE, you will need to download specifically android version what you will work with (you do it with the android SDK). There aren't so many frameworks to android applications, so in the market people usually use some multiplataform engines or IDE.

    Be comfortable to talk to me for any questions, I can learn more with it ^^

    I work as a Java systems developer and have a fair share of C++ experience as well. No android Java experience.

    C++->Java is a cakewalk. Everything but primitives is a reference, only heap objects, garbage collection.

    That being said, Java is a bit of C++' retarded brother and it throws a lot of obstacles in your way that C++ doesn't. This makes it really hard to mess up with Java, but it's also a bit annoying if you come from C++ where that has stuff like reinterpret_cast.

    Thanks! I bought a couple of books about Java, but they were both on SDK. It looks like more like a bunch of booleans and cases woven together than anything I've seen in C++.

    In school for Android and iOS development at the moment, so might as well throw my two cents in.

    In terms of Java between Android and other platforms, well, Android doesn't technically use Java. I'll spare any further explanation for the sake of not having to get my notebook; You do in fact code the app in a fusion of Java and XML, but it doesn't stay Java when on the Android device.

    For all intensive purposes, it looks like Java and works like Java, so you don't need to worry about the specifics:

    In terms of the difference for phones and tablets, before Android 4.x, you basically had to develop two versions of any given app. (Hence the existence of Android 2.x and 3.x, the latter being only for large-screen devices). Since 4.x, there is a more unified design scheme that makes compatibility between multiple screen sizes an easier thing, so at the moment, there isn't much different between Android for tablets and Android for phones other than screen size differences

    Just to add a lasr here, if you learn Java, you're basically also about 95% of the way though learning C# as well.

    I mostly use the eclipse sdk for JAva app development i know that mostly the syntax is a little C orientated.
    And i also agree that it is a little bit easier then most programming languages.
