Using Eclipse for Java Programming [ID:006]

a series of video-tutorials by John Montgomery

The Eclipse IDE can be a little daunting to the uninitiated. These ShowMeDos demonstrate some of the features you need to start using Eclipse for programming in Java.

Video Tutorials

1. A first Java program in Eclipse

In this ShowMeDo John demonstrates how to create a project in Eclipse, then write and run a simple "Hello World" application.

2. Code-completion in Eclipse

John demonstrates the code-completion feature of Eclipse.

3. The rename refactoring tool in Eclipse

Here John makes use of Eclipse's refactoring support to quickly and easily rename variables, methods and classes.

4. Using CVS inside Eclipse

John Montgomery demonstrates how to use the CVS version control system, built into Eclipse, to check-out a project from SourceForge.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for John
