I am using Fedora core 5 32+ bit as my os on the pc. I want to learn Java a bit on my own. Can I compile Java code from the terminal itself? I am not used to any particular IDE at the moment so terminal seems to be the best way forward as I have been doing this with my sample C++ codes as well. I would appreciate any further guidance in terms of what is the best way to start programming in Java on Fedora platform. Thanks a lot gentlemen.
