this is a more general question regarding Java. If somebody can help steer me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Java is used in so many different aspects and settings that it is overwhelming when it comes to deciding what to learn.
Please understand that this is not a duplicate of the other questions that I have seen so far.
So basically, I installed Java on my system, and when I go to the Java website to let it detect the version, Chrome tells me that the Java plugin is required, and I have to install it. The problem is, I already have Java!
