I need a little help... As it turns out I am writing most of the Java Game Development FAQ myself, and I am sure the pages could use a little editorial over-sight. I would really appreciate it if the participants in this thread could give all of the FAQ pages the 'once-over'. There is not a huge amount of information so I don't imagine it would take too long. If there are any spelling errors or mistakes in my facts I would really appreciate you letting me know. http://games.cpbinc.com/faq/ Thanks, JL Edited by - Jerry Lynn on 5/22/00 6:57:00 PM

I browsed rapidly and saw nothing wrong.
You might, however, add the existence of gj, pizza, Kiev and PolyJ (outdated but the authors promise a new version will arrive this summer), which allow you faster development through a more rigorous Type System (i.e. templates).

Also, I would like to testify that we are going to use a very hybrid C++/Java system for a game I am working on.
Core : C++
Abstract level : Compiled Java (gcj)
Levels : Interpreted Java
Interaction will be handled naturally through CNI.

Of course, this is a bet, since gcj is not yet available for Windows.

Be reading you,
David

On that same note I thought some of you might be interested in the fact that adding Generic Types is an accepted RFE (though there is no indication of when this will be available in the language spec).

Altmann - Would you be willing to write a real quick 'lay person's' summation of Generic Types, their benefits, and descriptions of some of the available tools that I could add to the 'tools' section of the FAQ?

With pleasure - but probably not before the 6th of June, unless I can finish my "homework" faster than expected.

Be reading you,
