A colleague tells me that, when using Processing, you're not developing code in Java but using the Processing language which is a cut-down version of Java. This is because of the following lines in Wikipedia:
"Processing is an open-source computer programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) built for the electronic arts, new media art, and visual design communities with the purpose of teaching non-programmers the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context. The Processing language builds on the Java language, but uses a simplified syntax and a graphics user interface."
I was surprised as I thought it actually did use Java. All IDEs nowadays can build scaffolding around code to assist with many complex or common Java programming tasks and I, quite wrongly it seems, thought that Processing worked with Java in much the same way. Could you confirm that Processing does come with it's own programming language?
