I'm doing Computer Applications in DCU at the moment. Now the course has
been split up into two different courses: Enterprise Computing ( CAO: DC120
) and Computer Applications ( CAO: DC121 ).
EC is more business minded, but you do still learn programming, and CA is
programming orientated. From what I hear/read both courses now develop on
Linux, so these might suit you. The DCU course is very good, but does have a
high failure rate, so you do have to work at it, but I think the splitting
of the course was aimed at fixing this.
Personally, programming with Java is much the same regardless of what
platform it is. The compilation commands are the same, you write your code
the same way, execution command are the same, so it's much of a muchness
really. That's the whole point of the VM, it's identical on all platforms.
As an aside, Java Concepts by Cay Hoorstmann is a great book for learning
Hope this helps,
