right guys, i need opinions from all you computer-science type people out there! as some of you will know i'm in 4th year of a physics degree, which means its honours project time! one of the options (the one i'm most interested in) involves programming in java. now, i've never done any java before, & i'm wondering if its something that i could pick up without to much bother, or if it'll become the bane of my existance over the next 6 months & i should therefore run as fast as possible in another direction! so yeah, any opinions would be useful!

I had to learn java over summer before starting 3rd year (comp sci) and i'm getting the hang of it. Although i'd already being programming in different languages for 2+ years so that would have made a difference. It really depends on how heavy the programming actually is.

Very easy to pick up. Due to being an object-oriented language, it will probably feel quite natural to you. Of course, it depends on the complexity of what you want to achieve with it, but I think you can master it in about 2 weeks, if you really want to learn it. There are books like "Learn Java in 21 Days" you can buy, and you can do a couple of "days" per day, so you can learn it pretty fast.

If you need any Java help, feel free to add me on MSN at coca@wroaw! smile.gif
