Relearning Java

Eclipse is only a little head scratching.  Oh yes, must download the JDK as well.  Not sure that I could handle a full-time job, but it is worth making sure that I could actually say, "Yes, I can teach beginning Java."

Utterly perplexed.  Eclipse will not compile:
import java.util.Arrays;
It cannot find it, so I installed the latest JDK, added it to the PATH environment variable and Eclipse still cannot find it.  I am guessing that somewhere in Window->Preferences there is something that tells it where to look.  Obsolete version of Eclipse.  New download solves the problem.

No question about it: not going back to work full-time.  A couple hours of this has worn me to a frazzle.  I just hope that leach field does not turn out to be $20,000, if it is failing.

  1. I started with the alpha release of Java, and used it for most of my work until I retired a few years ago. I still use it when I work on updating my Android app (Radar Alive Pro).

    But I've gotten rusty, so I feel your pain. Also, I have had to learn IntelliJ since Android has moved (mostly) from Eclipse to "Android Studio" which is IntelliJ.
