Naked Objects
By Richard Pawson and Robert Matthews

Appendix A: Getting started

This section aims to get you up and running using Naked Objects, using a very simple application as an example. Although this section will be of particular interest to Java programmers it has been written with enough detail that developers proficient in other languages and other software professionals can make sense of it. We will discuss what software is required, where to obtain it, and then look at how to code a simple application.

For this example we will work with basic command-line tools rather than with an IDE (Integrated Development Environment). This enables us to see the exact steps needed to write, compile and run the application, which you can then apply to your specific IDE.
