    Please excuse me if something similar has been posted before!
    I'm a novice at java, learning at uni!
    My prob is, I need to install netbeans 3.6 (as this is the one I'm used to at uni)
    I have yet to get this version downloaded and working properly, I have tried a newer version, which I can just about manage, the only prob is, now we are using the 'element' package, making console and drawing windows for assignments, and I cannot get it to work with later versions! (I only know how to use the 'mount file, import element. We are working from Duane Bailey's Java Elements, if that's any help)

    It would be much appreciated if someone could either point me in the right direction to get it working in a later version, or help me find the JDK download for version 3.6 (as it's so elusive)

    Thanks in advance, Trish.

    Hi shirtytrish,

    Welcome to TSG ! :)

    You need to download the J2SE version 1.4.2_04 from here. It is compatible with Netbeans 3.6.

    Thanks Chicon! I'll give it a try! Was just going to try and figure out version 5.0 again, to see if I was just missing something simple!

    well this is as far as i've got;

    got everything installed ( as far as I know!)
    Mount filesystem>archive>(element)zip> it then adds itself, but it doesn't 'finish' I managed to click finish once, it showed as being mounted at the bottom of the filesystems window, but when I tried to 'import' the drawing window, it came up with something like; you haven't got this mounted in the filesystem' (in simple terms) So am now a bit stuck again! ARGH!!!

    ALTHOUGH the 'element' part didn't show any errors this time, so I'm getting closer to the solution I hope! :)

    (BTW this is version 3.6) ;)

    Personally, I use Eclipse on my home computer (it's free) and Borland JBuilder on my office computer (it's not free and too expensive).

    Link : www.eclipse.org

    ta for the link! I'll give it a go sometime! In the meantime, as it's got to be in tomorrow, and I've only got to 'animate' all the windows, I'll try writing the prog 'blind' and a/ hope for the best or b/ that the student resource centre has netbeans running so I can check it before I say goodbye to my work! :D
