hi, i'm new to linux. I currently need to explore the linux platform for my project. i'm using Mandrake.

i would like to know:
- how to run .exe file on linux.
- how to compile java on linux platform. There are a few jdk for linux( e.g. blackdown JDK, IBM JDK, Sun J2SE and Kaffe). May i know which to choose? Is it all of them are mostly the same, and i can pick anyone of them?:confused:

thanks in advance.

No no no. Java programs don't have .exe at all. You always need a Virtual Machine environment to run a java file (.class). There are some special stuff to incorporate a .class and a VM in an .exe file, but I've never used one.

So what you do is:
- Compile the Java
- If you wish, make a .exe for the Windows
- Just use a shell script for Linux (or something)

Doing a .exe for WinE in Linux is just stupid IMO. Totally unnecessary.

Good luck! :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
