Hi.  Fair question.  Sadly, i am not yet a java programmer because what i
know about java is too basic to be of any use to me, let alone anyone else. 
However,I am making an attempt to learn the language, and if i am able to
grasp it in the near future, then i might be able to do something with it. 
Cheers!
