GNU Java Training Wheels

Computer programming tutorials for the rest of us!


I have invented a new programming language called J.T.W. which stands for Java Training Wheels which has all the power of Java but a simpler syntax that is similar to Delphi, Pascal and BASIC and is therefore easier to learn than Java itself. Learning J.T.W. before or while learning Java provides a less steep learning curve that learning Java from scratch. For many reasons you might even prefer to program in J.T.W. rather than Java. Below left is a fragment of some J.T.W. source code:

class Person
begin

   private property String name;
   private property int    age;

   constructor Person(String aName, int anAge)
   begin
      name = aName;
      age  = anAge;
   end

   method void grow()
   begin
      age = age + 1;
   end

end
