Default Welcome to the forum!

Hey everybody. If you're making your way through the book and have questions about concepts or code samples I'll be happy to try to answer your questions. General JavaScript questions can also be posed here as well as in the other JavaScript forums on this site.

Smile I need help with basic java (I'm beginner)

Hello, Alexei, I'm new in this forum, and I'm just begining to programming in java, and I have a question, I think is so simple for you, but not to me, because I'm just trying to program in my first steps.

Ok, I just write the code, but I don't understand why it shows me two errors.

**** this is my first program******

package cambiarfuente;
import java.awt.*;
import java.Applet.*;
* @author marielos
public class CambiaFuente extends Applet {

public void paint(Graphics g)
Font font=new Font ("Serif",Font.BOLD,24);
g.drawString("Aprenda JAVA en el ITCA", 5, 25);

but in this line:
import java.Applet.*;

It shows me the next error "Unused import", why?

and in this another one:
public class CambiaFuente extends Applet

This is the error:
cannot find symbol
symbol: constructor Applet()
location: class Applet

Thanks for your help

Hey I think you've gotten JavaScript and Java mixed up. JavaScript is the one that runs natively in the browser. You should post your comment in a Java-related forum.

Default Great Book... Graceful depredation?

Hello, Author Alexei,
I am a professional developer, albeit almost entirely back-end oriented.
As I find my way with browser-based technologies, your book is extremely helpful.
But I am also finding that your book could have used a better copy editor.
I hope the next edition will be better in form. But the content wrox, thanks to you.
Again, great book, despite my other comments.

Hey Todd,

Oops. As you point out, that should read "graceful degredation". That looks a little bit like a spell-check mis-correction. Thanks for catching that.

I'm glad you're enjoying the book anyways! Feel free to throw any technical questions my way as well. Editorial corrections are welcome as well in case there is a second edition.

By the way, on the off chance you bought the book on Amazon, it would be great to get your general feedback in the form of a review there as well since there are no reviews yet that I am aware of.
