: : Hi there
: : I am curious to know how Java provides the programmer with functionality. If you are using for instance C on Windows, you can (and probably would) use Windows to do certain things for you. Now I wonder, if you are using Java on for instance Windows, you would not want to code Windows programming in there. Does Java then provide the functionality that Windows should have?? Or to put it another way, I have not yet seen a book called WINDOWS PROGRAMMING USING JAVA. Does anyone understand how these things fit together? Or maybe you would use the VM as a kind of OS??
: : Anyone???

: Java has got equal functions to many things is the Win API. Graphics, keyboard/mouse handling, threads etc. It has been a while sence I last used Java, so I don't remember if/how you can access the "raw" API functions from it (I doubt you can).
: This is all really off-topic... you will probably get better replies on the Java board.
OK then, I was just wondering. Lastly, what about DLLs and Java. Can/should Java use those?? Or can Java do something else similar to this??
I will go to the Java forum if you insist. While I am there, should I tell them you guys think their language sucks??
While on the subject of GUYS, why are there no hot chicks wanting to program?? It is because they dont like nerds? They are always complaining about equal rights, but they dont want to get down and dirty with the rest of us.
They say live every day like your last. I think I would get wasted on my last day. Should I therefor now get wasted every day since it might be my last??
