    Is anyone still working in java?
    Java 8 is ... well I'm working on just trying to get a directory li
    listing with ntfs atributes or ext attributes , owner ..etc then push that
    to a database for reporting and statisticle purposes.

    Anyone try that yet ? ... just the owership and permissions issues.

    There is.

    I've not (Not much of a software engineer, just shell scripting with some
    perl and php tossed in there), however, my go-to is usually stack-exchange. Someone has encountered the problem before :)

    It will take me a bit but I'll post what I have. When I say a bit probably a month due to what I'm working on now. SQL test I have to pass soon so after that I will make the project to use the sql database to host the info that the fjile enumeration or directory enumeration will output. I thought java would be good because its on so many system things ..these days. :) bad editor for me. I don't know how to backspace.

    Nope. Never tried that.

    I use Java. Love it. Great first language (or one that I really am
    taking seriously). Has a lot of the things one needs to know in
    programming and get their min rapped around :).

    Yeah I dabbled in Java around 10 years ago, I quite liked it too, found it fairly easy to learn. Was also my first experience with object oriented programming, and I took to that concept pretty well. Yeah I could think of a lot worse first choices for a programming language, from a learning PoV.

    Only thing I don't like about Java is the JVM, These days, speed isn't an issue
    - Java programs run well, but it is a memory hog.

    Yeah. With Java you learn OOP and a syntax that is used in a lot of
    languages. Plus you can then (like what I am fgoing to do) move onto
    somrthing natively compiled like D from Java and then from there learn
    that and work my way down to C and C__ :).

    I think Java is a decent language.. I learned C++ before Java, so I still tend to feel like Java is lacking in some ways (Java doesn't have multiple inheritance or direct ways of freeing memory, for instance). Some years ago, I saw that colleges were teaching Java as a first language for a while and then went back to teaching C/C++ as a first language.

    Sounds like a decent strategy... if one has the time. :)

    Yeah, I do think it is and I do have the time - so it's great :)

    I think you should either teach them C,C++ or Java as the first language
    but don't go to high-level or "easy" like Python (in some cases the
    Python system is confusing too but yeah - the C,C++ and Java are solid learning points for a new comer - like me).
