Learning to not hate Java

I had an interesting experience this weekend, in which I was finishing up my CS project for the semester (an Assembler written in Java), and found that I didn’t really hate Java that much. The API is still a bit odd at times, but since they added basic regex support in 1.4, it isn’t nearly as painful to use for jobs that would be trivial in Perl or Python. I think that after 3 classes in a row with Java projects at the end of them, I’ve finally learned how to keep the language from getting in my way. And of late it is also the only reasonable sized programming project that I’ve actually had time to sink my teeth into, and actually getting things accomplished always colors things in a more positive light.
