It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Hello World

Today I installed the Sun JDK for 64-bit Linux®. Using the method on the D-A.org site: I made a Deb from Sun's bin file, and then installed the Deb.

I then tried out the first program in my Learning Java book. It's rather a lot of code for just "Hello World". It's also a lot of messing having to compile to a class file before running it. I'll give it a go, but it looks very verbose and cumbersome when compared to Perl. I suppose it's not designed for the same thing so for the moment I'll give Java the benefit of doubt and see what comes next in the book.
