Out of the Blue I am starting a project in JAVA. The developed program should run on Windows 2000 and Solaris.
The program will deal with massive numbers of files, calculating MD5 digests and matching against entries in database.
What do I need to install on Windows platform (Windows 2000) to start the development. I will also need to develope some UI.
Let me know the full bundle I need to install and all combinations to start the development. Pro and cons of using various JAVA compiler.
