Which download(s)?

I need help sorting which Sun Java tools to use and how to get to my goal most efficiently.
I need to develop a Java application with the following characteristics: (a) targets as many environments as possible (Desktop, Browser, Mobile...) with as few changes as possible; (b) does interactive sound file signal processing (complex, ffts, filters, etc, but not DSP) from sources that include stream and microphone, and sinks that include loudspeaker, graphics display, and stream; and (c) includes a GUI that features interactive use of a mouse/touchscreen on a canvas.
I could write the application in a variety of languages including C/C++ or Python (using readily available libraries), but either of those choices would make (a) difficult. Because of (a), I think I'd rather do it in Java.
The array of available Java tools and products is intimidating. It's not clear at all what to use. There seems to be considerable functionality overlap and deep complexity in all choices. The NetBeans IDE maybe seems about right for (a) and (c), but (b) appears to require the Sun Performance Library, which in turn appears to be available only in Sun Studio. Sun Studio appears to be huge, with dozens of elements with mysterious functionalities. And there are several other downloads available, all with non-obvious--and upon digging, usually irrelevant--utility for my purposes.
I believe that Java may offer the best available environment to develop my application to meet (a), (b), and (c)--but maybe only for a Java guru, which I don't really have time to become. I know what my application needs to do, and I know how to do it in other languages. What I'm after is the absolute shortest path to the application in Java. And this could be the last Java application I ever write.
For context, I've written working programs in over 300 languages, most of which no longer exist. I delivered an application in Java in 1996, but haven't touched Java since, except for a one day NetBeans course in 1999. I've been running Gnu/Linux since 0.95, and Unix for a dozen years before that. And let's not talk about OS/360, RT-11, Fortran 66, etc., etc.
Any and all advice is appreciated.

The current Java [SE] Development Kit (JDK)
NetBeans 6.0.1 (you'll want the full version, which includes the Mobility plugin for mobile Java enviroments)
Java Media Framework API (JMF) from here: http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf/index.jsp
While the JDK will cover "regular" computer environments, you have some choices to make for Mobile and Interactive Device Technology,
as there are a number of supported devices. See here for an overview:
These will build a core for what you say you want to do. As previously mentioned, do some looking around Sun webpages. A good way to do that is to click the links (APIs, Downloads, APIs, Products, Support, Training, and Participate) in the blue header on any Sun Developer Network Page

  • Multiple productcodes registration same account, which download?

    Hello everyone,
    We install several Office products for different customers. Therefore we have one registration account where the productcode is given in. The problem is, every Office download looks the same. Which download goes by which productcode?
    For example:
    Is a new registration always the one on the top or the bottom of the list, or is there some other way to figure out which install goes by a specific productcode?
    Thank you.

    The code is already used, so one of the entrees in the list is corresponding to this code. But which entree?
    When entering the code for the second time, I'll just been directed to the list with downloads (not to a specific download).

  • Hi, i am having a problem in my ipad 2 , it is not showing main screen just showing a black blank screen in which downloading icon is only shwn which is continously and when i connect to itunes via windows 7 it showing this error (0xE8000065) can any one

    hi, i am having a problem in my ipad 2 , it is not showing main screen just showing a black blank screen in which downloading icon is only shwn which is continously and when i connect to itunes via windows 7 it showing this error (0xE8000065) can any one

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until the screen blacks out or you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    Finally, if the Restore doesn't work, let the battery drain completely.  Then recharge for at least an hour and Restore again.

  • Why after I transform files from my pc to Ipad2, I can't play the games on ipad which downloaded before?

    after I transform files from my pc to Ipad2, I can't play the games on ipad which downloaded before. Can anyone help me to solve this problem?
    I was trying to open the games in ipad, but, it just shine, can't open. And the ebooks same.
    Thanks for your help.

    That is disgraceful. I would have thought that if it is password protected then you should be able to access your own files, if they are still recoverable in any way that you wish. The cost of professional data recovery is prohibitive and although I have had near disasters in the past, all due to external drives, I have always been able to recover deleted files, even from discs that had had a quick erase.
    Thanks for your input.

  • Which downloads do I need for studying these certifications?

    Thanks bigdelboy. I'm completely new to Oracle. Does Oracle provide some sample databases (not just data structure but with data also)?Yes, as Justin Previously described.
    You are probably trying to look at too much at once. It is probably better to concentrate on becomeing familiar with some SQL from a training and practice viewpoint, then going over details towards an SQL certification.
    Do NOT concentrate 1z0-047 first, but rather 1z0-051 (or 1z0-007). But its usually better to get some practice with the product first.
    Remember an oracle database will take a fair bit of resource on your machine. There is an express edition [http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/xe/index.html] whcih has some merits for learning and has a smaller footprint, though it is only available for 10g not 11g (And do not confuse with application express which is a different product)
    Standard Oracle Product downloads are available from [http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/index.html]
    SQL practice/training.
    If you are not swamped already I would be surprised.
    I would acutally start by getting some basic SQL practice ...
    [http://www.w3schools.com/sql/default.asp] is a what a understand to be certificaction safe website that will do this ... be aware there are a lot of certifiaction unsafe websites out there.
    (Read also [http://blogs.oracle.com/certification/2009/05/the_route_you_choose.html])
    Remember practice, experience and knowledge are utlimately better than certifications, and a certification study is one vehicle to help gain practice and knowledge.
    Though understandably lack of a certification may disadvantage you from getting a job.

  • Which download do i need to buy: contribute 6.5 or contribute 6.5 User

    i need to upgrade from Contribute 3.  i need to update my website - the content and the "border" - the template that shows my name, email address, etc.  But how do i know which to purchase from Adobe?  The "Contribute 6.5" or the "Contribute 6.5 User"  ???   Very disappointed that Adobe doesn't seem to have a purchasing department help 'line.'   Can anyone advise the difference?  Thank you!

    Yes. Lion requires that you have v10.6.8 installed before you can upgrade to Lion. Reason being is you need to have access to the Mac App Store in order to download Lion.
    Lion requires an Intel-based Mac with a Core 2 Duo, i3, i5, i7 or Xeon processor and 2GB of RAM

  • Which download for wireless development?

  • Confusion over just which download is the 11g client

    Hello all,
    Your newest of newbie's here. I am installing SAS on some windows 7 desktops. SAS looks at the our Oracle Database. I need oracle 11g client in order to make the connection to the database.
    From the Oracle download page I selected: microsoft windows 32 bit file 1 and file 2. Is this what you downloaded and called 11g client? I installed it on the system and the SAS program still can't "see" the database. I maybe running into environmental variable and path stuff but I thought I would ask if I was working under the correct assumption that the win32_11gR2_database 1 of 1 and 1 of 2 are, in fact, the client.
    If you can answer this you are my savior.

    Pl identify which version of Win 7 - you will need Professional or higher.
    Pl also identify which exact version of "11g". Yes, there are two zip files that you need to download and extract into the same folder, and then follow the install instruction in the doc
    11gR1 -http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/install.111/b32007/toc.htm
    11gR2 - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e24187/toc.htm
    This only installs the client version that can connect to a remote Oracle database
    Do you need a database to be created on each Win machine ?

  • HT1338 I have an Mac OS X version 10.4.11, how do I know which download 10.5 is what I need?

    I Have a Mac OS X version 10.4.11. I 've needed to upgrade my software for my IPhone 4S and it says that I require Mac OS X 10.5. but I don't know which one to download. If there is anyone who can help I would grateful appreciate it.

    You cannot download Leopard. You may be able to purchase a retail copy on eBay or Amazon.com. You can upgrade to Snow Leopard instead for $30.00.
    If you need to purchase Snow Leopard you can still purchase a copy from Apple's online store's telesales agents.[1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753) or Customer Service and Sales Support at 1-800-676-2775.] Ask for a Sales Representative.
    Third-party sources for Snow Leopard are:
    Snow Leopard from Amazon.com
    Snow Leopard from eBay
    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store.
    Be sure your computer meets these requirements:
    Snow Leopard General requirements
    Mac computer with an Intel processor
    1GB of memory
    5GB of available disk space
    DVD drive for installation
    Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.
    Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.

  • Which downloads do I need

    I have a notebook NX7010 which uses XP prpfessional.
    on the back is a label with Compaq NX7010
    A serial No,  p/n and service tag
    Last monday I started it up and it came up with
    A disc read error occurred
    Press Cntr+Alt+Delete to restart
    This originally had a 160GB hard drive and I was told that it was too big and that was what was causing the problems.
    I've bough a new hard drive 120GB and tried to load windows, but there is a list of several drivers under each heading, soi which drivers do I select?
    Or more to the point how do I find exactly which drivers I need?
    Can anyone help please?

    First thing.
    Click on start.
    Then control panel, system,  hardware and then device manager.
    You will see ? marks next to devices you need drivers for. “Video, sound, network, etc”
    Double click on one of them then click on details.
    You will see a device code like “PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_170C”
    There may be more numbers after that but this is all you need.
    Do a google search on that device code and it will tell what that device is.
    Go to HP drivers download, download and run that driver.
    If you cannot do it from the laptop you are working on download the drivers on another computer and transfer to a thumb drive.
    Then run the drivers on the laptop.
    Let me know if you need more help.

  • For which downloads we pay - folio downloads, or including erros and canceled downloads?

    My question is quite simple - for which folios we pay to Adobe (or which folios are deducted from our credit) - just Folio downloads, or for all downloads, including errors and canceled downloads?

    I'm thinking apps that have 100% download, I also want to know whether an update counts towards a download cost.
    It will be good to get Adobe to confirm
