Is there a way to step through my code with the JDK 2? Or any free tools that will (for Windows)?

RE: Debugging

The sun's java workshop (not studio, it is for beginners) is a free tool (IDE) to develop java applets and applications. You can download from the java.sun.com, about 9MB. It has a usable debugger and profiler too. It was written in java, thus you need a strong hardware (Min. P166, 64MB RAM).
You also use the debugger in the JDK, but it is very stupid.

Good luck,

RE: Debugging

Thanks, I will try it. I loaded it up MS J++ 1.1 in desperation because I knew it had a debugger though I had a strange problem. There in a declaration of BufferedReader (to read in an input file) in my class. The syntax and all is is correct, with no errors from JDK 2, bit MS keeps giving me class not found errors. Therefore I can use it's (MS J++ 1.1) debugger. Is this class JDK 2 only? Anymore suggestions greatly appreciated meantime...
Thanks Otto,

RE: Debugging

The jdk has the BufferedReader class since jdk1.1, thus you may have other problem. Are you sure to import java.io.* or java.io.BufferedReader? The CLASSPATH and other environment variables are set correctly for M$ J++ (or the J++ has own class library, maybe, I do not not, because I have never seen M$ J++ - luckily - :-)).
Bye, Otto.
