A grossly unfair, non-specified software development environment for online sw development classes, i. e. online java (a computer language) courses.
After having recommended your school, I am extremely disappointed in your inability to specify a general online development environment (for those students who don't have an sw online development java editor & java (idep) interactive development environment, available elsewhere). students are “hung out to dry”, i. e. no support! by you, not specifying a specific java editor (computer language, here java) in lieu of an english (natural language text editor) i. e. notepad.
Math is not english! in notepad a minus-sign, a hyphen, & negative-sign, all print as the same character (i. e. there's no need to distinguish). whereas in math/java a minus-sign, subtract-operator, or a logic not-operator each must be treated differently.in the absence of you not specifying a java editor, java students who choose notepad (an english language text editor) are in a “world of hurt”. therefore; “flash, you cannot safely use a natural language editor, for java source preparation!!! for each sw development course, you must specify the sw editor & the idep (interactive development environment platform). I know of three students who dropped a java class, probably because of this problem.
