I would like to know if anyone can help me with making a simple splash screen. Just a basic text splash, no images or popup. Just need it to where you add your name, date, etc. And it displays that, but must be outside the main().

The ones I see is mainly images, or popups. Unless I've been looking in the wrong areas.

So first you would make the method.
Then in main be sure to call it at the appropriate time.

public static void main(String[] args)
     splashScreen(); calls the method

public static void splashScreen()
    System.out.println("Name: ....... \n" +
                       "Date Created: March 19, 2010 \n" +
                       "Purpose: ................";
