  • 1. Riccardo Rigon Java for Hydrologists Getting started R.Rigon-IltavolodilavorodiRemowolf Tuesday, July 16, 13
  • 2. “Once you understand how to write a program get someone else to write it.’ http://www.cs.yale.edu/quotes.html Tuesday, July 16, 13
  • 3. Objectives Giving information about the Eclipse Java IDE. Introduction Usually textbooks on Java start from the command line. It is not a waste of time. However sooner or later you will find yourself using an IDE, a much modern way to interact with programs’ code. So way you should not start using it from the beginning ? Tuesday, July 16, 13
  • 4. However Do not forget to know something about Java. This post can be helpful to find some resources: http://abouthydrology.blogspot.it/2012/12/a-little-java-library-for- beginners.html Either the book by Bruce Eckel and the book by David J. Eck (see in the post) are a good starting point. I will refer more frequently to the latter book. So probably you have to read it first (at least the first general chapters).

  • 5. Eclipse Just look at: I let Vogel do the job http://www.vogella.com/eclipseide.html There you can find whatever you need to install it, and instructions to use it. For beginners just reading the first three chapters is sufficient. BTW: Vogel gives also some Java Tutorial ... here: http://www.vogella.com/java.html Tuesday, July 16, 13
  • 6. Self practice is the solution Tuesday, July 16, 13
  • 7. For the moment I do not talk about other tools, in random order: •Git (and repositories) •Ant •Maven Reason is that, at the moment, I do not know them either ! But, get prepared to them. Tuesday, July 16, 13
  • 8. Thank you for your attention. G.Ulrici,2000? Tuesday, July 16, 13
