my first real job was a game programming job for a small company that used a proprietary game engine to make their own games. They worked on this engine for 10 years and still have very few game developers. Now, I have been creating Java games for over a decade and I have a few friends who have been programming Java for quite a while.
The main reason I wanted to bring this project up was because I had some idea of why I built my own game engine. I know I made a few mistakes and in some cases I got the hang of it, but I feel like many people have been making mistakes with this engine since I started it. I know it’s an ugly machine but I also know it’s useful for learning your game, which is the only way to learn new skills.
The one Java developer who might be able to use this is our friend Brian Green, the editor of JavaDoc. He’s already developed the compiler to compile Java source code, but he’s not going to compile it in a single step. And the reason for that is because he doesn’t know how the JVM works.
The JVM is a set of tools that make it possible for Java programs to run on a variety of different platforms. In a nutshell, the JVM is a virtual machine that runs Java programs. The JVM is designed to run programs compiled in Java (the JAVA language) and interpreted in one or more of a variety of different programming languages (the JVM has a few different flavors of interpreters).
J2ME’s Java virtual machine is very capable, but has some glaring limitations. For one, it does not have a mechanism to run programs compiled in Java compiled in another language. The JVM does have the capability to run programs compiled in C++ and compiled in Fortran, but it does not have the ability to run programs compiled in C++ compiled in Fortran.
Minecraft does have the ability to run programs compiled in C compiled in Fortran. But what it does not have is the ability to run programs compiled in C compiled in another language (any language). If a program compiled in Fortran is compiled in Java then it will not run in the JVM, because Java has no way to run programs compiled in a different language (as opposed to a different virtual machine).
