How to start writing a Java program
A working interactive program with notes on how to adapt it to be your own application.

Various tools and techniques for user interface programming. Especially highlighting the use of HTMLEditorKit to create flexible, discursive user interfaces.
Scaling Pages and Images
For a photo tagging application I wanted to relate a real world map to an on-screen map. This note describes how to convert co-ordinates between the two.
Exception Handling in PDFBox
The developers of PDF Box were debating how to handle exceptions. In this note, my bottom line was to suggest reduced reliance on exceptions.

How best to display color alternatives in two-dimensions? Try your luck.

Demo Programs

To run the demo of these various programs, download Examples & Sources and double click it. (You must have Java installed.) The installer will unwrap itself into its current directory. Therein double click the "JavaNotes.jar" icon. It will display a menu of the various demo programs.
