Java Programming Question

Postby themandotcom » Sun Apr 10, 2011 4:33 pm UTC

Hey guys,
I've been looking around and can't seem to find the answer to this: is it possible to create a Java applet which will allow the user to use a "paint" like program, and then save it as an image file?
e^pi*i=WHAT??

Not a Java applet! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

The answer to your question is yes. But please choose a better technology. Java applets are so 90's. I've only ever written one and that was after someone explicitly asked me to write it in Java.

Let me link you to a good java applet, and the equally good making off of said applet.

Although yes, java applets are probably not the best way to go if you want something on the web. It's good enough if you want to make something for yourself though, although why you wouldn't just simply use regular Swing for that I don't know.
It is practically impossible to teach good programming to students who are motivated by money: As potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration.

How long is this supposed to take to load? All I get is the coffee cup loading icon (which might be a Mac thing since I thought it used to be a SUN logo with some animation.)
