Hey guys. Im a senior in High School and plan to go to college and get a Bachelors or Masters in Computer Science. I'm learning Java and im sort of fluent in it. I know the basics and how to like make pics on applets and stuff. I use JCreator. Anyone know a good Java compiler? I have a bunch of questions so I was wonderin if anyone knew any sites with good tuts on how to begin programming games and such using Java. Anything would be a big help!

I don't like it, but it's a personal issue.

Anyone know a good Java compiler?

Sun's.

I have a bunch of questions so I was wonderin if anyone knew any sites with good tuts on how to begin programming games and such using Java.

See the Forum FAQ and the Java Development Forum FAQ.

A compiler is a program that compiles human code into machine code (or in Java's case byte code), such as Sun's own javac. What you are looking for is an IDE - an Integrated Development Environment. I'd personally recommend Eclipse at eclipse.org.

I don't like Java for it doesn't support RAII(you don't have destructors).

You don't need RAII in Java. Everything's garbage collected.

Well, I don't like Java much. I'm used to C/C++ and I find java annoying, but I have to use it in school project...
About compiler, Sun's is probably the best (it's their language, so they should know, what to do with it).

For the 'Java-Like' languages (J#, C#, etc.) I prefer c# because it lets me use "unsafe" code, but I think that making online applets in Java that run on webpages is extremely cool, and will probably start using it more.
