A good group for those just starting out (with
Java and/or usenet) is comp.lang.java. help.

1) An active brain and specific questions.
Wait, can you be more specific?
Are you talking tools (e.g. IDE's, build and source versioning),
points of help (usenet, help desk), materials that describe
the API's, or explain their use?

For the last two, see the JavaDocs and the Java Tutorial,
both online browsable, or downloadable for free, from Sun.
For points of help, see the earlier advice re c.l.j.help,
and as far as tools go, try Ant and a commonly used*
IDE like NetBeans or Eclipse.

* I say 'commonly used' because that offers the best
hope that when you ask 'how do I make my IDE do..'
type questions are less likely to attract an answer of
'ask the IDE maker'. I leave out 'good' since all the
major Java IDE's are 'good' according to their

We're using the ServiceController class provided by the .NET Framework, programming in C#. We are using the Start() method to start a service from another service. This works fine most of the time, but occasionally after a system startup (where the service doing the starting of the other is automatically started by Windows XP) the ServiceController's Start() method fails to start the other service. It is probably throwing an...

Mostly for testing reasons I'd like to see if it makes sense to chose the following approach for just-in-time compilation of shaders for a renderer: Seeing as the shaders themsefs consist mostly of very basic operations I'd like to translate them into assembly, have an assembler compile the binary code and then call the resulting machine code from c++. The thing is that up until now I have only used inline assembly in my c++ projects,...
