About Fedora OS
Fedora is a secure, stable, and powerful Linux-based operating system that provides the latest free and open source software within a flexible/customizable?/manageable? environment for developers
The Fedora distribution strives to:
Be on the leading edge of free and open source technology, by adopting and helping to develop new features and version upgrades.
Establish and implement technical standards for packages, ensuring the quality and consistency of the operating system.
Promote rapid adoption of new releases by allowing for easy upgrades, with minimal disturbances to configuration changes.
The Fedora Project promises to:
always be free for everyone, everywhere, to use, modify and distribute. collaboration is commonplace people control their content and devices.

Setting up your Java development environment in Fedora
How do I yum? Open a terminal and type yum install name-of-package.
What's a package? A package consists of the metadata and compiled code for a library, collection, service, or application which the Fedora operating system can query, install, upgrade and remove, typically via a package management system.
Why use a package versus downloading?
Benefits and features of packages Steps to setting up a basic development environment Commands for setting up a basic development environment.
yum install vim-enhanced (or emacs)
maybe syntastic-java (new in F18)
yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel (shorthand: java-devel)
yum install maven (or ant or gradle)
yum install git (or subversion)
maybe gitg and/or emacs-git
yum install eclipse-jdt (jdt stands for Java Development Tools)
yum install eclipse-egit (or eclipse-subclipse)
maybe eclipse-findbugs, eclipse-eclemma and/or jacoco
yum install tomcat-admin-webapps (or jboss-as)
yum install mysql-server (or mongodb-server or postgresql-server)
yum install rubygem-rhc (to deploy to OpenShift Online)
Starting a new Java project
Using the REPL Using the compiler requirements what to use how to save how to execute Build tools IDE support Ex. with Java Ex. with Clojure I'd then git clone a repository or start a new one using mvn archetype:generate or Eclipse. Then I'd build it with Maven, Ant or Eclipse. I'd then start Tomcat or JBoss AS and deploy the application. Deploying may require the prerequisite step of starting, configuring and populating the database.
If I wanted to get into other languages, I might install the language & it's corresponding build tool. For example, clojure & leiningen (or lancet)
Tip: One thing developers complain about is that building a project for the first time leads to Maven "downloading the internet". While this is part of how Maven works, it can be alleviated (in part) by running mvn-local. This script will first attempt to resolve the library from the system (shared libraries) before reaching out to the internet. (Another solution would be using a local artifact manager like Nexus or Artifactory, but alas, that software is not available in Fedora).
