Dear illustrious Compatriots,
Any inputs regarding having to trust too much on a programming language, treating it as a black box, but having blind faith for that time till we learn enough to understand why we use those queer forms and words?
Learning a new language is about rote-memorisation of a few particular associations of some keywords till we begin to understand the internals of the programs.
The following pattern is like a black box to me:
public class HelloWorld {
	/**
	 * @param args
	 */
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
	}
}

the queer words being Quote:
... public, class, static, void, main, string, args, ...
and so on.

Eclipse has plug-ins for many different languages, we don't generally use the forums for teaching them. I'd suggest going through the Java Tutorials at https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/ . Not all of the keywords you've listed apply to the same context.

The moot point is the rote-memorising of the codes. I imagine that if we could just have an algorithm and an Artificial Intelligence Software could write the code all by itself, it would have been great!


And why rote-memorising of codes?
Because some software companies want such professionals. Why? Because people want to be richer!
Why Richer?
Because we want to get over the uncertainties of mortal existences, and having leisure!
The keywords here : (1) overcoming uncertainties (2) to have leisure

There are indeed some individuals who can obsessively focus very narrowly on developing codes and still better codes.
Ultimately, they are just more efficient codes - a means to an end in itself!

What if
we could delegate those lower order repetitive work to some ANNs (Artificial Neural Networks) that would tirelessly improve upon codes, our higher consciousness would then be free to pursue the higher purpose of observation, perception, evaluation, betterment of our conditions, winning over more and more uncertainties and having leisure.
